Brian has extensive trial experience in criminal law - more than 200 jury trials - ranging from misdemeanor cases to murders, to child sexual assault cases, both as a prosecutor and a defense attorney. I have not known him to misjudge or miscalculate a case or a trial strategy. He is always the most prepared attorney in any case. He is personally invested in each case and it's outcome.
