Brian has been practicing law since 1983 and, like many attorneys, has been very successful in developing a rewarding career. In the courtroom, Brian has handled disputes involving contracts, residential and commercial leases, purchase and sale agreements for business and real estate, restrictive covenants, neighborhood relations, business torts, foreclosures, repossessions, receiverships, Uniform Commercial Code Articles 3, 4, and 9, and both consensual and nonconsensual business dissolutions. In the conference room, Brian has represented both buyers and sellers in the purchase and sale of businesses and properties, provided title insurance services, and served as counsel for the negotiation and resolution of many business deals. Behind the scenes, Brian had the honor to learn from and practice law with H. Lee Moffitt, former Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, and serve as managing partner of Lee’s law firm.

Unlike many other attorneys, Brian has additionally had the opportunity to invest in and own many other business opportunities. During his career, Brian has not only owned his own law firm, but he has also owned or invested in over 300,000 square feet of commercial office/flex space, several hotels, executive suites, clothing retail store, medical billing company, and business services company. Just like the individuals who seek out attorneys to represent their interests, Brian has firsthand experienced, and solved, day-to-day challenges involving vendors, cash flow, property rights, contract disputes, employees, and partner disagreements.
As part of Brian’s law practice, he also had the opportunity to represent homeowners challenging their homeowners’ association and similar associations seeking covenant enforcement as to their residents. Even though Brian no longer represents associations or homeowners, Brian became active in the Community Associations Institute and has personally served on three different Boards of Homeowners Associations. This sort of experience, just like his business experiences, has afforded Brian an extraordinary practical perspective and genuine empathy for individuals and companies locked in disputes involving their money, relationships, property, or business.
The hiring of an attorney or mediator is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide, you should review information about the qualifications and experience of the professionals you consult.
