About Brian

Learn Brian’s areas of practice.

I'm a Defense Base Act Law attorney and Longshore Act Law attorney for Garfinkel Schwartz, P.A., in Maitland, Florida, and Cocoa Beach, Florida.


My job is to try to regain denied medical care, medical benefits and financial compensation for civilian contractors and longshoremen who have been injured, sick or those who died. I go to court and fight for you vs. insurers and employers who denied medical benefits and compensation. 


The forgotten warriors who work overseas as civilian contractors in war zones, and the hard-working men and women working on U.S. waterways should not have to fight for medical care alone against insurers. It is their right under two laws.


The Defense Base Act and the Longshore Act Law provide injured and ill civilian contractors and longshormen rights that may include:

  1. Right to choose their own doctor
  2. Attorney fees
  3. Medical care
  4. Compensation


Cases can go on for the duration of an illness or injury.  If a person is in horrible pain, hospitalized, it's imperative to work with an attorney who knows the Defense Base Act Law and the Longshore and Harbor Workers Act Law.  


The goal of an insurer is to deny claims in order to remain profitable. Contacting an insurer, documenting illness and or injury, requesting medical paperwork can be very difficult for clients and their families.


If you’re injured and you’re thinking that the insurance companies are going to do the right thing, work with a DBA law or Longshore attorney. Call somebody familiar with the practice areas. Garfinkel Schwartz is committed to helping one family at a time.

Garfinkel Schwarts PA/Brian Wiklendt
My husband and I appreciate the services that we received from Garfinkel Schwarts, PA. Our case was a long journey, but we were thankful for the representation that we had, that we did not have to walk this journey alone, and for the outcome that we received. We owe our outcome to this firm and our attorney, Brian Wiklendt. Brian was very patient and professional in all his dealings with my husband. We would recommend the services of Garfinkel Schwarts PA.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2000.

Review Panel Reprimand issued in GA, 2000
updated on 02/08/2010

This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case, the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
