Outstanding Attorney
Brian was highly responsive, very knowledgeable, and incredibly personable. He was always prepared with excellent strategies to deal with every situation I threw at him. He made a miserable process much easier.

Excellent Lawyer!
I had 100% confidence in Brian every step of the way through my case. From the moment that I filed for divorce and child custody he kept me informed and prepared. He was prompt in responding to my questions and concerns and his knowledge shined through for sure. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case and would refer a friend and even hire him again if necessary! Thank you Brian!

Family Attorney | Sep 04
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Having worked with Mr. Victor as opposing counsel on a contested divorce matter, I was impressed with his professionalism, knowledge of the law and demeanor. We were able to work together to resolve a highly contentious case with positive results for both our clients. When I learned Mr. Victor worked as an FCS counselor for 11 years, I began to use his services as an FCS coach for my clients. The results were incredible. In addition to his background as an FCS counselor, Mr. Victor had spent 7 years working for the Department of Children's Services, giving him special knowledge in the area of dependency. Without hesitation, I would recommend Mr. Victor to anyone in need of a compassionate, intelligent and dedicated family law attorney."
