Brian E. Jorde

Brian Jorde

Brian E. Jorde brings extensive business experience in real estate development, and personal entrepreneurship, to Domina Law Group pc llo practice. Mr. Jorde is active in the firm's Michigan and Nebraska practices.

Mr. Jorde was raised in Wayne and Omaha, NE. His undergraduate degree in Philosophy is from Vanderbilt University, and his law school education was at Western Michigan University, Cooley Law School in Lansing, MI.

He worked for several years in complex commercial real estate areas. His work included notable projects, including negotiations for sale of property now used at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock AR. Other major projects included acquisitions complimentary to the Ambassador Bridge, providing the official NAFTA connection between the U S and Canada. He is also involved in environmental issues affecting real estate, and successfully completed a rare orphan oil well cleanup project in Michigan without costs to his clients.

Mr. Jorde also worked for nearly two (2) years in logistics and transportation with a major trucking firm. He negotiated contracts, and arranged transport for truckload, and less than truckload (LTL) cargo movements from Canada to Mexico and all across the United States. He spent a year in the real estate business in Western Australia, too.

Mr. Jorde’s pre-law school work also included time with Domina Law Group pc llo as a paraprofessional working in the trial practice section. He provided courtroom support for a jury case lasting more than three (3) months in Oakland County, MI, and several other cases of significant complexity. Jorde was present in Court when David Domina presented closing argument to a federal jury that returned a $1.3 billion verdict for the firm’s clients.

“Brian’s business experience and entrepreneurial efforts add depth to our practice and is an asset to our clients,” Dave Domina said. "Jorde shares our view that lawyers have not been focused, as they must be, at business solutions, including aggressive risk-sharing fee arrangements, to be of service to clients who need our skills”.

Mr. Jorde said he is “confident that sound legal strategy and solid business thinking are compatible. Together, they can help small businesses grow, and mid-sized ones survive.” Jorde thinks “our country needs thousands of entrepreneurs, not a half dozen multinational corporations. I will be honored to help people make dreams realities, and help families to flourish and family business goals to come true.”
