Brian is passionate about trial work, and spent over seven years doing mock trials before becoming a lawyer and an adjunct professor/trial coach for law students at the James E. Rogers College of Law. Brian co-teaches the top 8 oral advocates at the law school and prepares them to compete in the National Trial Competition, the nation's most prestigious trial competition. He has won numerous awards for his trial advocacy abilities, including the William T. Birmingham award for Outstanding Trial Advocacy (presented each year to the top trial advocate in the University of Arizona Law School's graduation class) and the Jenckes Cup (as part of a two-person team from U of A Law competing against two ASU Law students in a closing argument).
Brian now uses his trial advocacy skills to help people who have been injured or have been accused of crimes. Brian is a member of the Arizona Association for Justice and the Pima County Bar Association. He was honored by the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Arizona Daily Star with a “Tucson’s 40 Under 40 Award,” which recognizes young leaders who are making an impact in the community with their professional and charitable work.
Brian's extensive background in the Information Technology field led to his interest in the burgeoning field of computer and cell phone forensics, and he now serves as an expert in the field, assisting attorneys in computer crime and computer security issues. Brian teaches various topics regarding law and technology and digital forensics and evidence at the annual Arizona Public Defender Association conference, and to other attorneys seeking continuing legal education (CLEs).
