my story

Brian’s legal experience began after college when he worked full time as an insurance claims adjuster investigating and resolving tractor-trailer accidents that resulted in personal injury claims. During that time, Brian attended law school in the evenings, graduating from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in 2002. After passing the Ohio bar exam later that year, Brian began his law practice at Reminger Co., LPA, a large insurance defense firm, focusing on the defense of transportation companies, their employers and their insurers against personal injury and wrongful death claims.  Brian was a shareholder at Reminger where he spent more than a decade. Now, he focuses his practice on plaintiff injury litigation. As a lawyer to injured victims, Brian strives to ensure that his injured clients are treated with the utmost respect by the insurance companies and seeks to achieve the best possible outcome for them either through settlement or, when necessary, at trial.
