Attorney Profile


Brian offers an empathetic and compassionate, but realistic, approach to clients. Open and easy communication is important to a successful attorney client relationship and Brian believes returning client phone calls within 24 hours is critical to a successful attorney client relationship. Similarly, Brian pursues all avenues of negotiations with adversaries to efficiently and effectively resolve matters.

With more than 34 years of Matrimonial and Family Law experience, Brian strategizes with you how best to approach your case so that you enter into negotiations with clear, realistic goals in mind. Brian spends the time necessary to fully appreciate your objectives and craft a plan to deliver positive results.

Brian actively initiates resolving matters through negotiation/mediation first and in most cases, Brian can negotiate a resolution outside of court. However, if attempts at negotiations are unsuccessful, Brian has the experience and is prepared to aggressively represent your interests in court or at trial when necessary.
