  • | PRACTICE AREAS

  • | EXPERIENCE SUMMARY

    Brian focuses his practice on white collar criminal defense, regulatory compliance, complex civil litigation and appeals.  He began his career as an associate federal public defender, representing clients charged with drug crimes, firearms offenses, sex crimes, bank fraud, money laundering, and immigration crimes.

     

    In over ten years of practice, Brian has developed an expertise in complex litigation.  He has represented clients charged with violating FDA regulations, foreign nationals and United States citizens charged with violating international trade regulations, an apartment owner charged with a knowing violation of the Clean Air Act surrounding a heating contractor’s removal of asbestos from a client’s apartment complex, and clients charged with criminal copyright infringement based upon violations of software licensing agreements.

     

    While most cases never go to trial, Brian has significant courtroom experience, both litigating motions and bringing cases to trial.

     

    Brian also has a renowned appellate practice, appearing regularly before the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and teaching appellate writing and advocacy as an adjunct professor at Marquette University Law School. Brian was involved with two cases before the United States Supreme Court: the landmark case United States v. Booker, and Logan v. United States.
