Business structure and employment contracts
I recently was considering restructuring our company as well as hiring two senior executives for which I needed customized employment contracts. I was referred to Brian through a friend and was a little hesitant because I knew his specialty was real estate law. However, after meeting with him I was confident that I was in good hands. My desire to restructure was based on a previous consultation with another attorney. Brian was unconvinced, so he consulted with a colleague with experience in the type of corporate structuring. He then meticulously outlines the potential advantages and disadvantages as well as the cost implications. The end result is that we avoided a extremely costly restructuring and walked away with two strong employment contracts.

Real Estate Lease Breach - Legal Representation
Brian was fantastic in the support he provided me and my company in our lease dispute. He clearly was an expert in this field of practice and provided me with expert direction and most importantly comfort in how the process would unfold. His expertise and the comfort it provided me in our course of action allowed me to focus on the needs of the business and not get distracted by a legal matter. Brian's patience and bedside manner in educating me about the process was much appreciated. I would highly recommend Brian!

Trustworthy & Detailed
I work for a commercial real estate firm in the Inland Empire and I have used Brian's services to help my clients. Brian is very trustworthy and very responsive, I have always found him to be quick and accurate in his responses. Brian has earned the trust of not just myself, but more importantly the clients I have represented on deals. I look forward to working with Brian more in the future and he will always be the first person I call when I need assistance. I highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a hard working, honest and trustworthy real estate attorney.

Legal work for Big Brothers Big Sisters
Brian conducted all of the legal work for our recent real estate transaction, which included the sale of our current building and the purchase of a new, much larger one. As we used new market tax credits for our purchase, there were many attorney's, banks and consultants involved in our transaction. Brian did an outstanding job keeping track of all of the various documents, needs and legal transactions/documents each entities attorney's needed. Brian always had our best interests in mind, deeply cared about our mission and made sure that we were favorably represented. Brian is aggressive, professional, fair and thoughtful and a pleasure to interact with.
