Bryan Cermak

Senior Counsel

Client 100+ Reviews

Bryan guided me from inception of my business in 2009, through hiring contractors, changing states, work limitations and license requirements, and continues to guide me now through my current biggest expansion. As a 30 year paralegal, I have worked with many lawyers, both as clients and as those representing others during a negotiation. Bryan stands above them all. He has an unusually astute way of hearing only a few details, identifying the nut of any issue, providing clear guidance, making the client feel empowered (which is huge), and making sure I had the most direct path to success in every case! This, by the way, equated to the least expensive path too! He is seriously one of the best of the best!
