Brian was born and raised in Blair County, graduating from Central High School in 1988. He thereafter attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania where he graduated cum laude with a B.A Degree in Political Science.  In 1995, he earned his Juris Doctorate Degree from Regent University School of Law, a private Christian Law school located in Virginia Beach, VA. He was admitted into the practice of law by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in 1996. 

He began his legal career in the Blair County Public Defender’s office where he litigated hundreds of criminal cases ranging from the most serious felonies to minor traffic offenses.   In 1999, he accepted a position as an associate attorney with the Altoona law firm of Sullivan, Forr, Stokan and Huff which expanded his practice areas to include business litigation and formation, estates, civil litigation and family law. In 2002, Brian was admitted by the Oklahoma Supreme Court into practice and began employment with the Tulsa, Oklahoma law firm of LaCourse & Davis. In 2004, he was named a partner and primarily focused his practice in Family law, Civil Litigation and Criminal Defense. 

In 2005, he returned to Blair County with a vision to create a law firm that would zealously represent its clients with integrity. For over 18 years, Brian has striven to provide his clients with excellent legal representation and has used his extensive legal experience in the areas of Custody, Divorce, Civil and Business Litigation and Criminal Defense to assist his clients in resolving their legal issues.
           
Brian is an active member of his church, where he has served as a deacon and boys group leader.  He further volunteers his time with The Nehemiah Project, a non-profit organization that helps the needy. He formerly served as an attorney advisor to the Central High Mock Trial Court team and is particularly proud that one of his former students, Warren L. “Tripp” Crilly, is now an associate with his firm. He also serves as the Head Coach of a little league team which his firm sponsors. Brian is married to Karen L. Grabill with whom he began the law firm of Grabill and Grabill, PLLC. Brian and Karen have three boys ages 13, 11 and 8.
