#1 criminal defense lawyer in Vegas
I hired Brian for a very serious case of self defense. From the moment I walked in his office I felt like Brian was really there for me. He sincerely cared about my case. Brian is very charismatic, he's not only a great lawyer but an all around good person. He will fight tooth and nail to get you the best outcome in your case. He is also tied very well in the Vegas community so he was able to negotiate straight with the DA which made the whole process significantly smoother.

I want to thank Brian for helping when I needed it
Bare with me b/c I'm not great with words - a few months ago I was in a position that had me faceing some serious drug posession and related charges. Brian first told me what I was up against and prior to trial he made sure to get the complet story including search and seizure and warants were in order. He helped me and my family more than I can express, and gotr me a second chance to get it right.
