  • Allen G.

    It doesn't matter the size or scope of the case, Greg and his team are always there to meet their client needs. Read more

  • -Kenneth

    "Mr. Brown tried a very complex (and important) trial for us. It was incredibly contentious. The case spanned a 2 year period and would not settle. We had to go to trial. Mr. Brown was superior in trial to the other side (who were experienced and well respected Orange County attorneys). The jury loved him. He was very effective in communicating our points to the jury. Unlike the other side, he was exceptionally skilled in the use of trial presentation technology such as power point. His opening statement and closing arguments were riveting and captured the juror's attention. I think we won the case in opening! I would highly recommend Mr. Brown and his firm Brown & Charbonneau, LLP to anyone looking for the best in a trial attorney."

  • -Trusts & Estates Litigation Client

    "Greg Brown has helped me with several legal issues. In court, he is a master at being a trial attorney. His use of slide presentations and props help the jury's see our side of things. I highly recommend this attorney. "

  • -Divorce client

    "Michele Charbonneau was recommended by a friend who knew I was not getting anywhere with my first lawyer. After Michelle took on my case, I felt much more in control of my situation. She understood my priorities, helped me understand where I stood legally and what I needed to do in order to move forward. My divorce was not amicable, Michelle and her staff made the entire process bearable. They understood my needs, kept me on track to make the decisions that needed to be made and helped me get the settlement I deserved. I would recommend Michelle Charbonneau to anyone looking for a smart attorney that is willing to fight for her clients rights. She knows the law, knows how to 'fight' for you, does it well and is well respected."

  • -Ken Harter (jury trial client)

    "I have worked closely with Mr. Brown and I am impressed with his commitment to me and my case. He has spent every waking hour working on my behalf. He understands that I know more about my case than anyone else and consistently seeks my input. I believe his willingness to explain the legal process and include me in the decision making is essential to our working relationship, an ultimately to our success . . . he truly shines at trial. His ability to attract and maintain the attention of the jury while advocating our position is remarkable. The drama that he creates in the courtroom is, at times, akin to prime time television. . . It is my pleasure to recommend Mr. Brown to anyone who believes in these values."

  • -Robert

    "Mr. Brown is extremely knowledgeable, highly ethical, dependable and easy to work with. He is very down-to-earth and unpretentious, and is sensitive to his client needs. His fees are reasonable and he worked diligently and efficiently for me. I've have referred other friends and business associates to Greg Brown and they have all been very satisfied with his work."

  • -Divorce client

    "Michele Charbonneau has been the perfect attorney to represent me in my recent divorce and custody proceedings. She carefully listened to my concerns and objectives, raised issues that I had not considered and worked with me to accomplish the most amicable, fair outcome possible. She encouraged me to pursue the points that were most important to me and offered wise counsel when things felt so confusing and out of hand. Her team was responsive to my calls and even kept the process moving when I was having difficulty making decisions and doing my part. They followed up with emails and phone calls so that I could focus on doing the next thing that was required of me and I didn't feel overwhelmed. I recommend her with the greatest confidence."

  • -Kenneth

    "I think we won the case in opening! I would highly recommend Mr. Brown and his firm Brown & Charbonneau, LLP to anyone looking for the best in a trial attorney. He was by our side from the beginning to the very end and was unflinching in his aggressiveness and perseverance."

  • -Allen Gershenson

    "Greg Brown's capabilities as an attorney are second to none. I've used Greg to handle my own personal matters as well as referring potential clients to him on a regular basis. On each occasion I have been extremely satisfied as to how Greg has handled the matter. Greg's knowledge of the law is only matched by his ability to move his clients needs and concerns forward. As a litigator, Greg has the ability to take the courtroom and make it his own. Greg's courtroom skills exceed most of his peers. Greg excels in communicating his points not just verbally, but visually as well through cutting edge technology.

    Additionally, and probably most importantly, Greg spends the time to both understand his client's needs as well as keeping his clients informed on the progress of their case. "
