An athlete growing up, Brandon is a natural competitor who does not shy away from the litigation process and fighting for his clients. “We have to be willing to fight for our client’s rights and advocate aggressively.” Brandon has no fear in standing up to the large insurance companies and corporations who refuse to treat his clients fairly.
Brandon is a trial attorney who has tried both bench and jury trials. He has appeared all over the Commonwealth from Tidewater to Richmond, and Northern Virginia. Brandon is licensed to practice law in the State of Virginia and in Federal Court before the Eastern District of Virginia.
When he is not advocating for his clients, Brandon spends his free time watching WVU football and basketball with his Fiancé, their two dogs, and deaf cat. Brandon is an avid Jeopardy fan, “I admire James Holzhauer for the competitive edge he brought to Jeopardy, forever changing the way the game is played.”
