With almost 40 years fighting for the rights of injured workers, Attorney Dennis L. Brown brings seasoned and knowledgeable experience in personal injury litigation, especially in matters involving marine and offshore injuries, longshore/vessel injuries, Defense Base Act claims, and trucking/auto collision litigation.
Attorney Dennis L. Brown has spent his career taking on employers and insurance carriers in courts up to the U.S. Supreme Court and secured judgments in the multiple millions of dollars for his clients. As a U.S. Army veteran and child of working class parents, he’s not afraid to fight for justice for each and every client.
While some attorneys try to avoid trial at any cost, Dennis L. Brown is not afraid to take a case to trial if the insurance company is not offering adequate money to fully compensate you – his client.
