Compassionate, Client-Centered Representation

Hailing originally from southern Illinois, Brian holds a BA in clinical psychology with a minor in German Literature as well as an MA in clinical psychology. Having begun his career in clinical psychology, Brian worked as a court appointed counselor for the chronically mentally ill. This distinctly challenging and often unrewarding career is what led him to attend law school.

While earning his JD at Seattle University, Brian honed his litigation and mediation skills as a regional competitor in both mock trials and client counseling competitions. He served as an extern in the King County Prosecutor's Sexually Violent Predator Division. Upon graduation, Brian was accepted into the Order of the Barristers.

Ever since entering the legal field, Brian has focused his practice on family law where he can utilize both his legal and counselling training on a regular basis. Before joining Pivotal Law Group, Brian was a partner at a small general civil litigation firm in Seattle where he managed the majority of the firm's family law cases.

In all family law cases, Brian works WITH his clients to tailor litigation to their needs and goals. Whether the goal is obtaining a favorable parenting plan, a change in child support or a desirable division of marital assets, Brian has proven that he can achieve results for his clients. That is why they awarded him the 2014 Client's Choice Award from Avvo. Brian also has significant experience with non-parental custody and de facto parentage cases, which are foreign to many family law attorneys.

When he is not in the courtroom, Brian is often playing co-rec soccer, volunteering with his wife at Seattle Humane Society, or occasionally utilizing his courtroom presence in community theater productions.
