During law school, 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 and Court of Appeals. Brian’s years in the trenches at Causey Law Firm during college and law school were the perfect training ground for his current workers’ compensation practice.
Away from the office, Brian enjoys working on his new home, cycling, hiking, and playing the drums.
