            Brian comes from a diverse background, which adds significant insight into his role as an attorney in business and personal matters.  After receiving his Masters in Business Administration from the University of Illinois, Brian spent much of his life in the business world, successfully launching and operating two large corporations.  Brian's main areas of practice include Civil Litigation, Municipal Law, Fertility Law, Family Law, Probate, and DWI/OWI.

            Since joining the firm as a partner in 2001, the launching of a Fertility Law practice has been a main focus of his time and efforts.  An accomplished speaker, Brian has run several seminars on the application for fertility Laws in the State of Indiana, most recently in January 2002.  Topics included Cryopreservation Agreements between couples, Surrogacy Contracts, and the application of Social Security survivor's benefits and Spousal benefits when children are born greater than 9 months after the death of a parent.  Brian's personal background concerning fertility issues prior to the birth of his daughter in 1994, gave rise to an intense interest in Fertility Law and its application to help those including divorce, child support, custody, and all other aspects of family law.
