I have known Brook for almost 20 years, and required his legal assistance for several diverse situations. Most notably, Brook helped me through the very complex process of purchasing a fully functional turnkey Hardware Store several years ago. Though I hired Brook for his legal services, I can clearly and confidently say that his wisdom, knowledge, and perspectives extend well beyond that. In addition to extremely competent legal advice, he often clarified a variety of things to me in light of their impact on my life or business, reminding me of the bigger perspective, which is one of the most notable things setting Brook apart from other Attorneys. Having moved on to a career in Real Estate, I frequently refer both buyers and sellers to Brook. As I continue to learn the role of Attorneys in real estate transactions, like other Realtors, I sometimes get frustrated with the issues Brook may raise that on the surface don't seem important to me, only to later be humbled and realize how very important those issues were, and how valuable his involvement is in these transactions. I am now comforted when one of my Clients chooses to hire Brook, and I am always pleased to have the opportunity to work with and learn from him. Obviously I can, and often do recommend Brook without hesitation.
