Solid guidance
Brandon provides solid guidance on a case's strengths and weaknesses. His estimation of settlement value is right on, which has aided our company to make better financial, risk management, and legal decisions.

Top Tier Litigator, as Reviewed by a Litigator
Ohia Amadi and Brandon Reif were hired to represent our law firm in ugly, high stakes litigation. At each and every step of the way, we felt cared for as clients while also feeling like an aggressive litigator was by our side. Even though we were anxious about important case events and probably called too often, Ohia and Brandon never made us feel as if we were a bother or on the back burner. They were available to us at all hours, and always made us feel appreciated. The results they were able to obtain exceeded my wildest expectations. Everything that they proposed to us as our "best-case-scenario" was achieved. I fully and wholeheartedly endorse this great firm!

Top Flight Securities Attorney
Brandon is a tremendously talented and passionate trial attorney. His experience and knowledge of securities litigation is unsurpassed. You can do no better than to have Brandon as your advocate. Brandon represented me in defense of a frivolous lawsuit and he was successful at getting the matter dismissed after preparing an Anti-SLAPP motion.

Brandon Reif and his legal team did an excellent job in defending me. They were able to get the case dismissed early on by filing an Anti-SLAPP motion which was affirmed on appeal. I would highly recommend this firm for Anti-SLAPP defense.

Knowledge skill and energy!
Knowledge skill and energy, that is what I observed. Brandon and his staff represented me in an insurance and investment scam. After a couple of years of behind the seen work, we had depositions and mediation. Throughout this process I was thoroughly informed and put at ease. Through the hardest times, Brandon would assure me that we were on the right path and to have faith. Even when the negotiations appeared to be stalled and their offer was very offensive, Brandon‘s knowledge energy and skill kept me in the faith. Ultimately we were successful and avoided having to go to trial. I would have no problems recommending Brandon’s firm and staff to any of my relatives or friends.
