Brian began his legal career in Washington, D.C. in 1994 as an officer in the U.S. Army JAG Corps, handling environmental and administrative law matters. He then served as prosecutor in the JAG Corps, to include appointment as a Special Assistant United States Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia. In 1998, Brian entered the private practice of law in southeast Virginia with one of the largest Virginia-based law firms. He initially defended complex medical malpractice claims and represented medical practitioners in board administrative proceedings. His practice then expanded to cover an array of civil matters, such as product liability, guardian and conservator appointment proceedings, real estate title dispute resolution, business disputes, will contests, lender representation and creditor rights. After 18 years of large firm experience, Brian decided to leave that environment for the challenge of starting and managing his own law firm, which he opened in April 2016.
