|Brian began his foray into the world of workers' compensation back in 2005 at a
local "independent" medical examination firm. He joined Causey Law Firm in 2007, and hasn't looked back since.
He originally was the cheerful afternoon voice of greeting for the firm, but has moved to working behind the
scenes as an Administrative Assistant, providing support to all of the paralegals and attorneys as needed.
Brian attended the University of Washington while working at Causey Law Firm, graduating in 2009 with degrees in Political Science and Japanese Linguistics. With the encouragement of his family, and the team at Causey Law Firm, Brian entered Seattle University School of Law in 2009. During law school, Brian served on the law review and was a member of the editorial board, serving as a research and technical editor. In his third year, Brian won the Seattle region of the American Bar Association's National Appellate Advocacy Competition, and competed in the final round in Chicago where his team won an award for the fifth best brief in the nation. Brian graduated cum laude in May of 2012, and was nominated as a faculty scholar.
During law school and after graduation, Brian served as a Rule 9 intern at Causey Law Firm, which allowed him to handle hearings at the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals, as well as proceedings in Superior Court. His skills with research and brief writing were put to good use in these cases and he had the extra experience of participating in preparations, brief writing and oral argument on a case before the Court of Appeals.
Now that he has joined the firm as an Attorney, Brian will be representing injured and disabled people in Washington State workers' compensation claims and federal claims under the Longshore and Harbor Workers Act.
Away from the office, Brian enjoys cycling, hiking, and playing the guitar and drums. He is also a master at skipping stones.
