A Grand Rapids native, Brian decided at an early age to become a litigator due to the competitive challenges that the job entails. When one considers Brian’s sports background, this is not surprising. Competitiveness and an unwavering drive to succeed are in his blood. While an undergrad at Grand Valley State University, he competed as a diver on Grand Valley’s Swimming and Diving team. Brian went on to become one of the most decorated student-athletes in Grand Valley Swimming and Diving history earning three Academic All-American and six NCAA All-American Awards during his tenure. These All-American plaudits were the first by any male swimmer or diver at Grand Valley. These accomplishments led to Brian being inducted into Grand Valley’s Athletic Hall of Fame. After graduating from Grand Valley with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, Brian used his competitive diving experience as a springboard into law school at Wayne State University where he developed a passion for labor and employment law.
“I have a passion for advocacy and justice, and I enjoy using my skills to assist others in the areas of labor and employment law.”
Brian is a sports enthusiast who enjoys watching and participating in many sports. Brian has passed on his love of sports to his two boys who currently participate in high school basketball and baseball. Brian also enjoys spending time with his wife traveling, swimming, grilling, reading, and golfing.
