  • "High Quality Services"

    My experience with Blaine Brown has been nothing short of remarkable.

Blaine has been remarkable in handling my case. He is a profound listener and extremely detailed in all aspects trust litigation. He is personable and very companionate, as evidenced when dealing with my elderly mother. His level of legal acumen and attention to details has propelled my case to reach resolution much sooner than anticipated, as my experience has been when dealing with law firms in the past.

  • "Practical Advice in Highly Emotional Situations"

    Blaine Brown was hired to provide legal assistance to help ensure that a relative's wishes were adhered to by family members. Certain family members had taken actions to move monies into bank accounts which benefited them. Mr. Brown was able to obtain information as to the bases for these transactions. He diligently proved the power of attorney that was the basis for the significant amount of monies transferred was due to Elder Abuse. Threatening to file legal actions, Mr. Brown convinced the relatives to unwind the improper transfers of monies and return the monies to their proper accounts. Subsequently, I indicated to Mr. Brown my intentions to tell the relatives that I was prepared to give to them a portion of these monies. Mr. Brown wisely said to hold off on informing the relatives of my intentions. He stated it would be best to wait until a later time to inform them of my generosity. He was so very wise and practical. Subsequent very cruel and untruthful accusations by family members caused me to realize that my generosity was folly. Such practical advise of Mr. Brown led me to not make a big mistake.
