Summary

Winning is what matters! Brian has 20+ years of litigation experience successfully handling and trying medical malpractice and personal injury cases. He has obtained over $25,000,000.00 for his clients in just the past few years, which earned him a lifetime membership in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Less than 1% of attorneys are lifetime members of the Forum. He only takes on select cases so that he can personally handle every aspect of that client's important case. Other firms pass clients and cases off to junior attorneys who the client never would have selected. Brian never does that. Brian's dedication and focus on his clients' matters enables his clients to focus on their daily lives by entrusting the litigation process to him. One recent trial victory was over $1,000,000.00 in December 2018 in a medical malpractice case in which the Defendant made no settlement offer prior to trial. Brian's trial skills made the difference.

Brian is Board-certified as a Medical Malpractice attorney by the ABPLA. He is 1 of only 15 attorneys in Tennessee who have earned this certification, and he is only 1 of 2 attorneys in Hawaii with this certification. Board-certification is awarded only after having your trial experience vetted and passing an extensive exam.

He has been selected by SuperLawyers for 5 consecutive years as a plaintiffs' attorney handling medical malpractice and personal injury cases (2015-2019).

Brian has the highest rating available for attorneys from Martindale-Hubbell - AV Preeminent. The AV rating means a lawyer's peers (attorneys/judges) rank him at the highest level of professional excellence. He also has the highest rating possible with Avvo-a 10.0 / Superb rating.

Brian is licensed to practice law in Hawaii, Tennessee, California, Georgia, and Florida, and he is admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, and the United States District Courts in Tennessee and in Hawaii. He has offices in Nashville and in Honolulu.
