Winning is what matters! Brian has 20+ years of litigation experience successfully handling and trying medical malpractice and personal injury cases. He has obtained over $26,000,000.00 for his clients in just the past few years, which earned him a lifetime membership in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Less than 1% of attorneys are lifetime members of the Forum. He only takes on select cases so that he can personally handle every aspect of that client's important case. Other firms pass clients and cases off to junior attorneys who the client never would have selected. Brian never does that. Brian's dedication and focus on his clients' matters enables his clients to focus on their daily lives by entrusting the litigation process to him. One recent trial victory was over $1,000,000.00 in December 2018 in a medical malpractice case in which the Defendant made no settlement offer prior to trial. Brian's trial skills made the difference.
