Review Jean Brown

About Me

I have been practicing plaintiff's personal injury litigation for over 25 years, and have extensive trial, settlement and appellate experience in a wide variety of personal injury cases, including auto, premises, dog bite, product liability, wrongful death, medical negligence, negligent security and multi-district medical device litigation.  I am a compassionate advocate for injury victims and their right to have their day in court, and will leave no stone unturned when an injustice is presented in the law that in-depth research, hard work and creativity can or should remedy.
