Michael “Brian” Cullen has been called a “One-Man Community Service Organization” by former employees, clients and other barristers who often don’t quite understand his motivation to work so hard for struggling clients. His colleagues believe it is fun for him; his employees think of it as therapy for him, but Brian feels that each person who contacts his office truly needs legal advice to resolve some conflict that only a legal professional can do. Every client is very important to Brian, and he and his staff pay particular attention to their clients’ issues so that the smallest detail is not overlooked.
Brian is not only a hard working attorney but also a loving husband and devoted father. He enjoys camping and rock climbing with his family and has traveled all over the world pursuing his hobby.
Florentino Garza, Retired, is a name synonymous with legal excellence and success in the Inland Empire. He had an opportunity to be appointment a Superior Court judge by Governor Jerry Brown but refused to take the position on the bench so that he would be able to guide his son, his daughter in law, Municipal Court Judge Donald Alvarez and many other colleagues that stayed in close proximity to the practice of law. He was a community leader and voice for the Hispanic culture in the Inland Empire for over 56 years. He was also a member of the American Trial Lawyers Association, International Trial Lawyer’s Association and a past President of the Arrowhead Country Club.
