Brian was very helpful in explaining all of the WI laws regarding surrogacy and the proceedings needed to ensure our process would run smoothly. We ran into pregnancy complications that required us to deliver in another state, and he "handed us off" to another lawyer seamlessly, going above and beyond to ensure a smooth transition. He talked to us like we were actual people and not just more annoying clients. Thank you, Brian, for your help in making a super stressful situation more manageable.
Brian helped my family create a will and set up trusts for our kids. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process, and his fees were very reasonable. I felt so, so, so much better once we did this! It's incredibly important but also daunting, and Brian made the process smooth and seamless.
Highly knowledgeable, I got the information and clarity about adult adoption in less that 10 min - I met him in a nonprofit in Manhattan. I felt comfortable and he listened to my needs.
Amazing professionalism, and great sense of humor
Creating a gay family has enough struggles - and until we found Brian, sperm donor contracts and all of the confusion surrounding what we needed to assure custodial rights was certainly one of those struggles! But once Brian was helping us out, the clouds parted and he expertly guided us in creating the contracts we needed - that were not only legally precise but also reflected our unique family arrangement and ideals. Brian was thorough, kind, clear and communicative. If you need a family lawyer, you can not find a better one than Brian. We are forever grateful for his guidance during this stressful - but joyful - time in our lives. He made us feel safe and secure with his expert legal guidance, and even went above and beyond what we asked of him to make sure we were super protected from every angle. I don't think Brian wears a superhero cape, but he should - he is truly amazing.
Brian is exceptional! He's patient, available, flexible and professional! And most importantly, he knows what he's doing! I didn't know exactly what I was doing with my situation in which I needed him. He hung in there with me as I navigated my way. Many New Yorkers can get impatient, but he was cool and I felt very safe and in great hands. Thank you, Brian!!!
I contacted Brian for a rather emotionally-charged issue regarding a contract my spouse and I were having with another party. Even though we never retained Brian as our attorney, he spent time crafting thorough, thoughtful e-mails back to us, giving us sage advice and even some pep talks. His e-mail responses were timely and sensitive, and helped us make difficult decisions during a stressful time.
HE DID ALL OF THIS AND HE WAS NOT OUR LAWYER. He never asked us for money or told us he couldn't give us advice until we paid a retainer fee.
In short, Brian impressed the hell out of me and I would not hesitate to use his services in the future. If he was this attentive, clear, and helpful with someone who wasn't his client, imagine what he would do if he were?
