- Peter Jekums, Barrie

I have been a client for several years now and you have been available to assist me with situations regarding my divorce as they arose. When I first met Brian, I was very impressed with the personal yet professional manner in which he and his staff handled my case. I have always felt that he has genuine concern for myself and my children, and has always gone out of his way to explain to me in simple terms what my legal rights are and to work toward a solution between all parties involved in the most constructive manner. Brian uses his skills as a mediator to everyone's best interest and always conducts himself in a highly professional manner in court , where he is respected by his peers for his thorough case preparation and presentation. Simply, Brian is a perfect choice to help couples through this difficult time in their lives because he regards separation and divorce with insight, empathy and professionalism.
