Brian is an associate in the firm’s Houston office with a diverse practice focused on civil litigation. Brian’s primary areas of focus are life and disability insurance, property and casualty litigation, and contract disputes. He also has experience in homeowner’s association disputes, trade secret litigation, and premises liability litigation. Prior to joining McDowell Hetherington, Brian gained valuable experience as an attorney with a boutique labor and employment litigation firm, where he gained extensive experience in representing plaintiff-employees in collective action suits under the Fair Labor Standards Act and nationwide class action wage and hour lawsuits.
Brian’s approach to practicing law is to continually make sure that clients are receiving the best representation possible, and to stay up-to-date with the latest legal developments and rulings that could impact current and potential cases. Brian also places a particular emphasis on crafting clear and persuasive written arguments, which he views as one of the most important aspects in effective representation.
During law school, Brian was the Head Senior Articles Editor for the Houston Journal of International Law. He also competed on the Moot Court team as both a brief writer and as an oral advocate for competitions focused on Space Law and Environmental Law, and clerked for the Criminal Asset Forfeiture Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Texas.
Outside the office, Brian can usually be found reading (or re-reading) one of his favorite science-fiction series, or trying new restaurants in the city. He also enjoys creating new sounds with his guitar and piano, and spending time with his wife, Vanessa, and their two cats, Luke and Leia.
