How Brianna Helps Clients

Brianna is an associate in the firm’s Labor & Employment section. She is a double graduate of Duquesne University, both with her Undergraduate degree and her Law Degree. Her experience as a Teaching Assistant and Mentor in the Academic Excellence Program at Duquesne has allowed her to develop skills in communicating transparently with and generating efficient solutions for her clients. During her position as Summer Associate at Buchanan, Brianna was a part of several client matters relating to Employment Law, helping to foster the attorney-client relationship between Buchanan and its clients.

What Clients Can Expect

Brianna is a devoted advocate with a commitment to integrity. Her time as Production Editor for Duquesne’s Law Review made her keen on details and she maintains a creative yet persistent work ethic to generate innovative solutions in her clients’ best interest. Additionally, her prior experience as a Law Clerk at Edgar Snyder & Associates in the Employment section doing plaintiff’s work allows Brianna to approach any legal matter with a dual focus, enabling her to understand and anticipate both sides of the argument in preparation for providing solutions to clients. Furthermore, her time volunteering for Christian Legal Aid speaking directly with prospective clients who otherwise would not have been able to afford an attorney fostered her thoughtful approach to client service.

Every client deserves a tenacious advocate who understands their interests and priorities, and works tirelessly to guide, defend, and empower them. Your cause is my cause: I bring accountability, responsiveness, empathy, unwavering integrity, and fierce determination to every challenge.

Outside the Office

In her spare time, Brianna enjoys spending time doing outdoor activities with family and friends, skiing in the winter and boating in the summer. Outside of work, she can be found lifting at the gym, playing piano, and reading or trying out new recipes. She is also a movie buff and loves watching and re-watching movies with her lucky black cat, Bagheera.
