Brian was formerly associated with the firm of Ancel, Glink, Diamond, Cope Bush in Chicago where he was an associate and then partner. At that firm, Brian developed his litigation skills on behalf of the municipal and insurance clients his former firm represented. There, he learned how employers and their insurance companies think and operate. And he also developed an acute awareness of the unique needs of injured workers and how best to protect their rights. His desire to now use his experience to help the injured worker, and to advocate for the individual, is what led him to open his own law firm.

Brian is an accomplished appellate attorney, having personally handled multiple appeals before several Illinois appellate districts. He has also achieved success in the Federal Courts and has tried several cases in the US District Court in Chicago, and has handled appeals before the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
