  • Patrick William Rawnsley

    I have known Brian the entirety of his career and he is well respected in our legal community. He is more than just an effective litigator; he is exceptionally qualified as both a mediator and a pro tem court commissioner. It has been a pleasure to work with Brian both as co-counsel on cases as well as opposing counsel.

    Brian is who I call first when friends or family ask for a referral for family law, estate planning, criminal law, or other matters. This is because he is extremely smart, has good judgment, and works cooperatively to avoid dragging out conflicts between parties needlessly.
