Having practiced family law in King County since graduating from law school,
Brien has achieved a remarkable depth of experience in advising and representing
clients in all family law matters including divorce, contested custody,
child support modifications, protection orders, and parentage cases.
Brien believes communication is the key to successful representation. He
works with each client individually to form a plan of action for the client's
unique set of circumstances. With this approach, he is able to identify
with his clients and give them a voice. After determining if it will be
possible to reach an amicable resolution or whether litigation or mediation
will be necessary, Brien works with the client to execute their plan.
Brien has earned his litigation experience in private family law practice
as well as with the San Francisco Division of Child Support as an intern.
He also earned a Certificate for Specialization in Litigation while completing
his law degree at Golden Gate University School of Law.
Brien is known for his honesty, close relationships with clients, and tenacity
in his work on their behalf. He typically serves clients from our offices in
