Brian H. Breedlove

About me

I graduated with a B.S. degree in Criminal Science from Russell Sage College in 1974 while working full time as a police officer for the State of New York.  In 1977 I was awarded my Juris Doctor from Western New England College of Law. In 1978 I was admitted to the Nevada Bar.  I returned to New York in 1984 and was admitted to the state Bar in 1984.  I am admitted to practice in the United States District Courts in the Northern, Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the U.S. Courts of Appeals in both the Second and Ninth Circuits and the United States Supreme Court.


I am rated “AV” (the highest rating) by Martindale-Hubbell the nationally recognized lawyers rating service. In 2007 I became a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocate’s forum a group representing the top trial lawyers in America. Less than 1% of the lawyers in America are members of this prestigious group. I am a Fellow in the Litigation Counsel of America. Super Lawyers magazine has named me a "Superlawyer" for my personal injury practice in the upstate New York edition every year from 2010 to the present.


A jury awarded my client over 11 million dollars in verdict against UPS as a result of injuries he sustained in a motorcycle accident.  This is the highest verdict in Warren County history and the highest motorcycle award in upstate New York. 


In 34 years of practice, I have been Trial Counsel in Hundreds of negligence cases involving Serious Personal Injuries and death. I have tried Police Misconduct, Civil Rights, Employment Discrimination (Age, Race and Gender), Sexual Harassment, Partnership Dissolution, Real Estate, Shareholder’s Derivative, Fraud, Arson and Forgery cases. My practice emphasizes catastrophic personal injury cases and Business litigation.


I am a Member of the Executive Board of the Saratoga County Bar Association, New York State Bar Associations (Insurance, Trial Lawyer’s, and Criminal Justice Sections), the Capital District Trial Lawyer’s Association and I was a member of the House of Delegates of the New York State Bar Association. I serve on a pro bono basis as President of the Board of Directors of the Shenendehowa Senior Citizens Center.


Continuing Legal Education (CLE) providers such as the Capital District Trial Lawyer’s Association, the New York State Bar Association and the Saratoga and Albany County Bar Associations have engaged my services to lecture at their education seminars on diverse subject matter including “Cross Examination of Expert Witnesses”, " Direct and Cross Examination in Construction Accident Cases", “Accident Reconstruction”, “Seat Belt defense”, “Real Evidence” and “Ethics and Evidence”. I have also lectured on issues in Employment Discrimination, Sexual Harassment and Police Misconduct.


I have a special interest in Fraud and Forgery cases and was a featured speaker and the National Association of Document Examiners convention in 2009.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Michael Stephen Borgos

    Brian is an extraordinarily insightful attorney. His extensive and diversified experience provide him with the ability to anticipate events and his intellect allows him to take full strategic advantage. His court room skills are legendary. While he exudes confidence and comfort in the court room environment, he does so with a "common man" self-deprecating manner that is appealing to jurors. His expertise in the law of evidence makes him similarly appealing to jurists as he adroitly explains why a particular piece of evidence should or should not be admitted. Perhaps most significant for someone reading this review: Brian is fearless. If he is willing to take your case you can rest assured that he will persevere despite the odds. I endorse this lawyer.
