John A. Brigidear

Partner

“My approach is to build clients' trust in me with a track record of practical, cost-effective solutions to the legal problems their businesses face. And over time, as that trust develops, clients come to me for proactive advice instead of reactionary advice, and I become part of the planning process. The more clients trust me, the more I can help them. And I enjoy building those relationships.”
