In over two decades as a litigator, Brian has seen just about everything: high stakes bet-the-company commercial litigation, complex class actions, white-collar and indigent criminal defense, intellectual property disputes, products liability cases, and employment litigation. But whatever kind of case he takes on, his attention is always sharply focused on creating and advancing the best possible strategies for his clients.

The core of Brian’s practice is defending companies in class actions throughout the country. From the moment a complaint is served, he is working tirelessly to bring the matter to a successful conclusion quickly and efficiently. He has successfully opposed remand motions and he takes pride in having crafted arguments that obtained the dismissal of many cases at the outset, helping his clients avoid the time and expense of discovery.

Throughout his career, Brian has provided legal representation to people who otherwise could not afford it. In his early years practicing law, he worked as a public defender and, since moving to a large-firm practice in 2004, his commitment to pro bono work has been unflagging. He has dedicated many hours of his time and energy to representing prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility.

When he’s not fighting the good fight, Brian spends his time playing harmonica with fellow musicians in his neighborhood in New Jersey or pointing his skis downhill in the mountains of Vermont.
