His practice focuses on resolving claims arising out of motor vehicle collisions, boating injuries, occupiers’ liability claims and products liability issues.
Brian enjoys the complexities of personal injury litigation, but when it gets right down to it, he finds cases where the help he provides actually makes a difference in the quality of his clients’ lives the most gratifying.
When asked what he likes most about practicing personal injury law, Brian states that he enjoys sharing a person’s life story, from before they were injured, with the Jury so that they can see that contrast as compelling evidence of how the Defendant drastically changed that individual’s life.
