5 Stars: Breech of Contract of Hard Money Lending
I recently had the experience of requiring the legal services of Kevin Brick, Brick Business Law, Tampa Bay Florida. As a Canadian requiring legal services in the USA, I found Kevin to be very adept at bridging the cultural and legal divide of both countries with ease. He made me feel at ease in respect to USA law regulations as he clearly heard the intimidation and frustration I felt in attempting to deal with an international legal issue. This issue consisted of a Breech of Contract involving a large sum of money being withheld from me that originated in the State of Florida.
Kevin is extremely knowledgeable from a legal perspective on business and fraud issues given his wealth of experience. He displays solid knowledge and litigation expertise of the Florida State Laws.
Kevin is a very respectful, understanding and patient professional when working with a Foreign citizen. He is able to explain America Laws in a succinct manner that makes it easier for one to understand. His legal services were integral in assisting me to turn a 5 year nightmare into an organized plan of approach with successive steps to formulate a resolution.
As a Canadian, I have no hesitation in recommending Kevin Brick Business Law Services, Tampa Bay Florida to any Canadian/Foreign or American citizen who requires expert and timely legal advice on business related matters. Kevin and his friendly staff have timely responses and very reasonable fee rates. Kevin's direct method of communication of 'telling like it is' in a factual manner eliminates a lot of guess work.

5 Stars: "Kevin saved my husband's business. They had a complicated case. They were aggressively sued by a company for a claim of stolen trade secrets, included in the claim of RICO violation under the RICO Act, and unfair competition. This company wanted to put my husband's company completed out of business, and fast. The other company also filed for an immediate civil injunction- to force them to cease all business operations. This would have been a death blow, an end to their business. Prior to finding Kevin, they were working with an inexperienced attorney, one who took the case initially and had been absorbing the blows, not knowing how to respond or defend, only acting in a procedural manner telling them "we will just have to wait and see." This is not something you want to hear. They soon hired Kevin, fortunately just in time. Kevin was immediately prepared, he listened to the defendants, read through the complaint, provided clear genuine responses to questions. And then had an immediate plan. He saw that they had been taking a lot of blows, been pushed around, and it was the defendants time to stand up for itself and start being the aggressor. He immediately filed to strike down some of the complaint, he then requested a extremely extensive list of discovery from the plaintiff, began interviewing witnesses for the defendants, received affidavits, and represented defendants at their depositions- successfully, forcing the plaintiff attorney to leave less then half way through the day- frustrated. The judge agreed with the motion to strike down some of the complaint. The defendants now were the aggressor, the civil injunction was quickly being presented as a lessor threat, but still coming up in court. Kevin requested another round of discovery, 30 days after the first one. The plaintiff did not process any discovery of the first round, which he then filed a motion for sanctions against the plaintiff attorney and the plaintiffs. Included attorneys fees and fees in which the attorney may be personally liable. The plaintiffs had enough. They folded their cards and asked for a settlement. Defendants declined the offer. Plaintiff offered again a lower settlement amount, defendants declined again, after s third decline, the defendants agreed on a small settlement amount; spread over 4 months. The business was saved. Kevin single handed saved the business from- a civil injunction, and 4 claims of trade secrets violations including RICO claim. This was a very very serious case. If you need help on the most sensitive, life threatening (financially) business matters, Kevin is your only choice in the Tampa Bay Area. He is a former prosecutor and it will show in court. He is a trial attorney and very fast to compile a list of 50 - follow up questions while in court, to respond to opposing side or to prevail quickly in the middle of a heated deposition, to further win his case. Along with his extensive experience as an aggressive winning prosecutor, he is a very genuine person. While it may be hard to find anyone genuinely humble, honest, and a strong listener, they found one in Kevin. His answers reflect your question specifically, and not generalities often times heard from attorneys. He does not assume what the judge may say in advance but rather puts together a compelling response with facts, evidence, witnesses, and clear understanding of the laws. Kevin may very well be the best business attorney in all of Florida. I saw that with complete honest and objective fact. The first attorney before Kevin was in awe of the Plaintiffs attorney and would often tell the defendants, "They've got one of the best law firms in all of Florida..." or "They are the biggest, and strongest firm." Kevin was not intimidated. He became the aggressor from day 1. And he won. I cannot say enough thanks to Kevin for saving my husband's business and for the outcome of this case. The case has now been fully settled. If they did not hire Kevin, the chances of them losing the entire business was probably 90%."

I was not happy, or satisfied, with the communication, the effort or the lack of accomplishments of my then, current attorney. After interviewing 3 new attorneys, I chose Kevin Brick to become the attorney I hoped would bring this case to a successful end. Kevin took the time & effort to understand the case.

My case was very complex, but Kevin clearly explained our changing strategies and why we should proceed, or not proceed in a particular direction. Then, as the case progressed, he kept me informed, thoroughly discussed my options for each decision that I had to make, and quickly returned my phone calls and emails. Luckily, we did not have to go through a lengthy trial since Kevin was able to quickly negotiate a settlement in my favor, carefully listening and responding to all my concerns during the negotiation process. He surpassed my expectations and saved me the cost of a long litigation. I can't recommend him enough for his listening skills, his professionalism, the quality of his counsel, his attention to details, and his negotiation skills. I have had several attorneys through the years and can honestly say, working with Kevin was a very good experience."

I was at a total loss and in desperation searched out attorney's in the Fl area. I was lucky to find Kevin, we corresponded completely via email/phone and right from the start I knew I had found the right person. I was impressed from the very beginning, with his level of knowledge, responsiveness and understanding. Kevin resolved my case, helped me to get my money back and more importantly hopefully helped to keep this company from doing this to someone else. I would and will highly recommend Brick Business Law."

And of course, in my opinion, he is very fair and reasonable with fees. I will definitely be utilizing his services for future business [needs]."
- Christopher, Business Owner
5-Stars: "As a small business owner, I found myself in a situation whereby I definitely needed the guidance, advice, and assistance of an attorney. I am not one who is easily impressed, and I have demanding standards for those from whom I receive services. From my initial conversation with Kevin Brick, to the last piece of business he took care of for me, I sincerely could not have been more impressed. The advice and guidance given was absolutely spot on, resulting in the situation being resolved, exactly as I hoped it to be. Kevin patiently listened to everything I had to say, he took that information and laid out a very clear picture for me as to all the pros and cons of each decision I might make, and he processed each choice with me until I arrived at a decision I believed to be appropriate for my company. Lastly, I sincerely appreciated how accessible Kevin was whether it was via a phone call or e-mail, communication always took place in a very timely manner. I have to say the only negative point about working with Kevin Brick is that I can no longer make jokes about attorneys, without feeling guilty!!"

- Alex, Former Client
5-Stars: "Excellent Lawyer, would HIGHLY recommend!! I have hired Mr. Brick to handle a business/contract case for me."
"During this extended time period, he has always returned my calls promptly and has been immediately reachable. I do not have a legal background, so I have been thoroughly impressed with his ability to discuss the timelines of what will be happening next, what steps need to be taken and answer the numerous questions I have had along the way in a manner that is knowledgeable and thorough, yet easy to understand.
His report writing skills are amazing. During our conversations he was able to sort through and highlight the main important issues and concerns that I had within the case and legally produce intricate legal documents that were detailed and complete with supporting research on past legal case references. All of the filings throughout the process contained my concerns yet were written legally and were organized and detailed. I feel that Mr. Brick took charge of the steps in the legal process and helped me remain focused, but at the same time allowed me to feel like we were a team, considering my comments or feedback as it applied.
This was a difficult period for me, but I felt hiring him as my lawyer was the best representation I could have and everything possible was performed to achieve the best results for resolution, which put me at ease. The trust that I have for his skills and expertise were well earned particularly where I was in a situation where I no longer trusted working with people due to my previous business experience that brought me to him.
I have confidence in Mr. Brick as a Lawyer and would use him if necessary in the future and have no hesitations about recommending him. He is a valued asset to the legal field."
