Testimonials & Client Matters

"Brian is a lawyer like no other. I have been dragged through family law courts in multiple states and it took Brian (after 5 other lawyers failed) to help remedy my interstate child custody case. He's brilliant, no doubt. But he will also allow input from his clients. And despite my insistence at times, he always chose and counseled on the moral high ground. The law firm is expensive, but Brian is a thoroughbred. Brian is one of those "good guys" that helps you believe in the system." – Private Client
