Attorney Roman represented our municipal collective bargaining association through contract negotiations and several grievance processes. He worked around our diverse schedules, which involved late nights, travel and long hours. Attorney Roman's knowledge of collective bargaining and contract law was impressive and he represented us well. His efforts produced excellent results, which will benefit our association members for years to come.- Rick
While visiting our daughter a legal matter turn up and set us reeling. I found Brian Romans name on my cell phone internet first as a familiar nearby town & It was a Columbus Day weekend. I left a brief voice mail and was so surprised when he called me back. He listened and talked me through the problem. He said if his ideas didn't work out he would be happy to represent us. I hung up with him feeling great comfort. We were able to help our daughter. It was a false accusation that we were able to prove. When I let Brian know how we persevered and WON. He was just as happy as if he were part of the family. I would definitely tell anyone who hires him that he will stand by their side. He is great in a clinch! An old fashion term 'a struggle or scuffle at close quarters, especially in boxing'. IF trouble finds you call Brian Roman.- Previous Client
