Brian Sommer is one of the most amazing attorneys that I've ever met. He's a world class negotiator and mediator. When I found myself in a very difficult landlord-tenant dispute late on a Friday, he made great personal sacrifices to attend to the situation that I was facing, and dedicated himself to working on it through the weekend. His approach to the complicated situation was calming and professional. He deescalated the emotional reactions and work with the parties involved to bring them to common ground over a matter of days. What could've been a very costly, lengthy and stressful litigation, was resolved equitably and quickly. Based on Brian's steadfast dedication to his clients as well as his skill in matters of law, mediation and humanity, Brian has my highest recommendation as an attorney.

I have worked opposite of Mr. Sommer on several legal matters. He is extremely knowledgeable, well prepared, diligent, and reasonable. I welcome the opportunity to have Mr. Sommer as opposing counsel, and appreciate the professionalism he brings to the practice of law.
