About Brian

I have a passion for the art of oral and written persuasion. I practice law with an attentive ear toward each client's unique needs and strive to provide the means to achieve those goals, whether it is by creating new and ambitious legal strategies or refining already proven ones. Trial attorney Gerry Spence said, "If we are to be successful in presenting our case we must not only discover its story; we must become good storytellers as well. Every trial, every argument for justice is a story." I endeavor to communicate each of my client's stories effectively and as if it were my own, whether it is an elementary school for homeless and high risk students fighting to keep its state charter, a construction sub-contractor who has completed a job only to be stiffed on the bill or a rental property owner seeking to evict a problematic or damaging tenant. I strive to provide experience and peace of mind to clients in the following areas: General Civil Litigation; Workers Compensation Defense; Insurance Defense; Construction Law; and Landlord-Tenant/Property Management
