Brian grew up in Nampa, Idaho, the oldest of three children. After high school, he attended the Los Angles Chapter of the National Machining and Tooling Association Training Center and was a precision machinist for almost thirty years before attending law school. Brian started working for Earl & Earl in January of 2010 as Ryan Earl’s paralegal before attending law school at Willamette University College of Law in Salem, Oregon. Brian’s desire to become an attorney was driven by his desire to help people. One of his favorite quotes is “I hate bullies and I love sticking up for the ‘little guy.’” Brian is married and has three children and five step-children. When Brian is not slaying giants, he enjoys restoring Chrysler muscle cars and watching motorsports.
