Excellent Attorney
Brett and I were co-counsel on one of my cases and it was a pleasure to work with him. He is responsive, diligent, hard-working and knows his stuff. I highly recommend him.

Amazing Attorney
Brett represented me in an automobile accident. Brett always returned calls and kept me updated on the status of my case. Brett went above and beyond for me. I can't recommend him enough.

Always kept me in the loop
Brett handled a traffic accident for me a few years ago when I'd been hit by a texting driver. He was a great communicator, making sure to get in touch even if something was taking longer than expected. He was also a tremendous help to me in dealing with all the troublesome insurance companies and some difficult personalities. Brett made sure I was informed of every detail and I appreciated the thoroughness.

The best advocate!
Brett represented me on an employment issue where my previous employer was refusing to pay me for my hours worked. Brett contacted my previous employer in a stern and tactful manner and was able to get my unpaid wages within the same day! I had been trying to get this employer to pay me for over a month. I would probably still be waiting for my payment if it wasn't for Brett's expertise. I highly recommend Brett for any legal issue you might have. He is an amazing advocate and a true expert in his field. I have personally recommended him to other friends and family of mine.

Brett is a terrific advocate
Brett recently handled a car accident claim for me, and I couldn't have asked for a better advocate. His proactive, straightforward approach and terrific communication kept me informed without being overhwlemed, and quickly let me get on with my life. I will continue to use Brett as an advocate and refer his services to others.

Very knowledgeable and attentive, great attorney
Brett represented me in a personal injury case. He was extremely attentive, dedicated, and vigilant. He was very good about keeping me informed about of the status of my case, and returned calls and emails personally. I was very happy with his representation and enthusiastically recommend him.

Quickly Handled Everything After Hit and Run Accident
Brett assisted me after my car was totaled in a hit and run accident. At first, my insurance company wasn't working with me and the outcome didn't look good. I was so stressed out and upset. Brett quickly negotiated with my insurance company and reached a settlement with them. I was able to get a new car, cover my lost wages and medical bills, and put it all behind me. Brett took over and handled everything of what was at first a stressful and nightmarish situation. He had a great attitude, was professional, and kept me informed along the way. He really helped to rectify the unfair situation I was in. I don't know what I would have done without his help! Highly reccomended!
