Background and Education
Brandon is an experienced Virginia Beach attorney who grew up in Norfolk and attended Taylor Elementary, Blair Junior High, and Maury High School. After graduating from Maury in 1986, Brandon attended George Mason University to study international affairs and economics.
During, and immediately after college, Brandon worked in the restaurant business and after graduation (and between jobs) traveled extensively. From 1991 through 1994 Brandon traveled across the country twice, to Canada and Mexico, and spent several months in Eastern and Western Europe backpacking, including going to the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona and World’s Fair in Seville. While in law school he was the president of the trial team for two years and worked within the Naval Legal Services Office (“JAG Corp).
After passing the bar, Brandon obtained a job with a well-known small litigation based law firm where he worked for 7 years, the last 2 years as partner. Thereafter he joined a mid-size firm (30 attorneys) for the next 11 years where he was on the long-range planning committee.
Becoming Part of Parks Zeigler
Wanting to be more entrepreneurial and hands-on in helping run and grow a business, Brandon decided to merge his practice with Kellam’s. Not only were Brandon and Kellam long-time friends and had worked together in two different firms, Brandon appreciates Kellam’s detail focus, implementation of firm-wide processes and procedures and the application of technology to better serve our clients and to become more efficient. Our application of technology is generally focused on (1) becoming more efficient, (2) better serving clients by assisting in real-time communication, and (3) allowing client’s instant and 24-hour access to their files. At work, Brandon finds the most enjoyment with helping individuals and small businesses find creative and effective solutions to their problems.
