Meet Brian S. Demidovich | The Law Corner
Brian Demidovich is the Managing Member of The Demidovich Law Firm, PLLC which does business as The Law Corner. Brian formed The Law Corner in 2006 on this basic principle: the legal profession is and always will be a service profession. Consequently, attorneys should value their clients, promptly return their phone calls and emails, meet with them as often as requested and treat them with common decency and respect. Here at The Law Corner, we are honored to be our clients’ legal representative. It is a privilege we take with great pride which carries over in our representation of you. As the founder of The Law Corner, Brian ensures these high expectations are met.
Brian has lived in Raleigh, North Carolina since January 2001 when he started his legal career in corporate contract, merger, and acquisition law with SpectraSite Communications in Cary, NC. In 2004, Brian became a partner at Russell, Pressley & Demidovich, PC where he focused his practice on matters involving family law and contract litigation. Brian handled all the firm’s litigation matters. He was commonly known by the client’s as the “bull dog” or “the one who goes to court.”
Brian’s family law litigation skills developed early in his legal career. While attending evening classes in law school, Brian worked for a family law firm where he was the senior partner’s full-time law clerk during his second and third years of law school the firm primarily handled litigation cases. While there, Brian drafted discovery and motions, prepared subpoenas, interviewed witnesses, compiled trial notebooks, and often sat second chair in the courtroom. Brian describes this time as a grueling and invaluable experience. He says: “They pushed me further than I thought I could go. I will always remember my clerkship and be grateful for the tools that I acquired early in my career.” Brian, a former social worker, says: “Family law comes natural to me, I understand what the clients are going through and what they need. Sometimes it has nothing to do with being a lawyer. We are also ‘counselors at law’ and that is very fitting as a family law attorney. You must wear many hats. You have to have compassion.”
From 2004 through 2010, Brian was a “court house attorney,” spending much of his time inside the courthouse. Brian is very comfortable in the courtroom. He says that he would be described by his colleagues as: “an attorney who takes a no-nonsense approach to his cases and who thoroughly knows the facts, understands the law, and is a strong advocate in the courtroom, especially on cross examination.” However, over the years, Brian has seen the toll litigation takes on clients, especially the significant time and cost involved. Brian felt it was important to give his clients more alternatives. This lead him to explore alternative dispute resolution.
In 2013, Brian became a DRC Certified Family Financial Mediator. Shortly thereafter, Brian became trained in the Collaborative Divorce process. He thoroughly enjoys being a mediator and a collaborative attorney for parties. He says: “It is different, more peaceful, more getting to what matters sooner. It takes me back to my days as a social worker. It is very satisfying because everyone is generally happier.” Brian also volunteers as a mediator for the Wake County Domestic Court.
Brian is married to his wife, Pam and they have three children: Delaney, Dillon, and Darcy. Dillon is an avid soccer player for CASL, and his daughters are competitive Irish dancers. In their spare time, the family likes to ski in the winter and boat in the summer.
