Philosophically, Brett is a strong believer in equal justice. However, Brett is also a strong believer in applying his skills for the benefit of individuals. This belief lies in the notion that it is oftentimes difficult for individuals to obtain high quality representation, but most corporations will always find great lawyers because they can afford it. Brett is optimistic that by following the above philosophy, he will be able to help level the playing field for the benefit of the underdog.
Brett's practice focuses upon cases involving catastrophic injury (gas explosions, electrocutions and cases involving paralysis or serious head trauma), product liability, insurance bad faith, transportation accidents, including automobile and train accidents, premises liability, as well as general personal injury litigation involving negligence.
