This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the lawyer did something wrong but the bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Brian’s comment: “reprimand -- not related to any client representation or case work.”

Brian won a settlement for me that started out as an unpaid wage claim that I had filed with BOLI. I did not feel BOLI was standing up for my rights. Brian informed me of the laws, my legal rights, and he shared what his plan of approach would be. He was instantly such a huge source of support to me and his confidence was so reassuring. There wasn't any detail that he did not consider and his knowledge of employee rights has proven to be vast. He handled the demand with wisdom and confidence and won the settlement. He makes a very strong and intelligent impression and does not faIter from what he knows is capable. I would and have recommend Brian to everyone that needs help in an employee wage situation. He is very honest and straight forward about the chances and strength of the case. He is very clear about all the steps and his contract is very straightforward. I'm very grateful that I had him on my side.

Brian Buchanan was great to work with in resolving my case. He is very knowledgeable and was able to explain what options I had and worked with me in finding the best possible solution. His communication is great and he kept me well informed throughout the whole process. There were a few bumps in the road with the settlement but Brian made sure he was quick to respond to the situation and made sure things worked out smoothly.

Brian Buchanan will guide you through every step of your employment case in a very professional and thorough manner, but he will keep you posted and is readily available to offer support or answer any questions. Even though I was out of state, he made me feel comfortable and involved in every aspect of my case. Never did I feel alone or out of touch with how my issues were being addressed. He provides legal advice and representation extraordinaire and gets my most excellent recommendation.
