After graduating from law school in 2003, I worked for appeals court judges for two years to observe high caliber lawyering and see how judges make their decisions.  Since 2005, my practice has focused entirely on representing people who are harmed.  I seek to hold those responsible accountable for the losses they cause.  I am a trial lawyer.

More than a 5 Star Attorney!
If you’re reading this, it may be because you or a loved one needs an attorney and I’d like to share a little of my own experience. After sustaining injuries in a fall, it didn’t take long to realize that navigating an injury claim process on my own wouldn’t be an easy task and I needed an expert to help guide me. My first appointment was meeting with Brett Eckstein at Cannon & Dunphy, and it became the only appointment I would need. Within minutes it was clear that I found the right person in Brett, at the right law firm of Cannon & Dunphy. From the moment we first met until the close of my case I felt a sense of comfort knowing I was represented by a truly outstanding attorney. But most importantly, Brett is one of the finest human-beings I have ever met. He never treated me like “just another client” and I always felt like I had a loyal friend guiding me through the process. His attentiveness, kindness and compassion went beyond all my expectations! In the end, it was his expertise and persistence negotiating cases like mine that brought it to a fair, equitable conclusion. Choosing Brett to represent me was hands down one of the best decisions I have ever made! I am beyond grateful for him and his paralegal Athena for all their efforts on my behalf.

FANTASTIC
We hired Brett to represent us in a personal injury case and were extremely satisfied. He took the time to listen to our concerns and always had our best interests in mind. Throughout the process he was very responsive to questions that needed answers and helped guide us through the many facets of the case. We would highly recommend Brett as an attorney, as well as the Cannon and Dunphy firm.

Extremely Greatful
After my husband died, I called a number of other law firms looking for help. All of them said they could not take my case because it was not a typical case. Brett Eckstein sat down with me, listened to my story, and said he could help. He started an investigation right away and was able to confirm what actually happened. Brett was tough, thorough, sincere, respectful of me and my feelings, and dedicated to doing the very best job. After a lengthy process, he helped me successfully navigate the legal system. I cannot recommend Brett Eckstein enough.

Excellent Lawyer
I was referred to Brett Eckstein from a friend who is a lawyer and I was impressed immediately with Brett's easy and professional manner. I felt that this process was not stressful for me and the outcome was to my benefit. I would highly recommend Brett!

Awesome Lawyer!
Brett did an awesome job! He represented me in 2 different lawsuits. He truly cares about his clients as people, not just another case. It was a long, stressful process and I was ready to give in, but Brett took the time to ease my anxiety and fought to get me a much better settlement. He always kept me updated and returned calls and emails in a timely manner. He was so easy to work with. He took the time to explain each step of the process in an easy to understand way. I wouldn't think twice about hiring him again myself or referring him to family and friends. Thank you so much Brett!

Easy to work with
I hired Brett, as my layer after I had been in a car accident, I never previously had to hire a lawyer, and my first thought was what a headache this would be. After talking with Brett, I was blown away how easy he had made everything, he was very thorough, focused, kind, I felt he really cared about my well being. My personal experience was quick and painless. I would definitely recommend Brett.

Personal Injury Claim
In July 2018 my husband and I were broadsided by an agricultural truck. In September 2019 my husband passed away. There was still an open insurance claim on my husband and I wanted to make sure the appropriate parties were reimbursed. The insurance adjuster was an "insurance adjuster" and I just was not up for dealing with her. I spoke to my brother, also an attorney, and he recommended Cannon & Dunphy. Brett Eckstein managed to get the outstanding claim settled, reimbursed the appropriate parties and managed to get additional monies in the settlement in record time. I can't thank Brett enough! I would not hesitate to call Brett Eckstein and Cannon & Dunphy should I ever require legal services again. Super guy! 5Stars

Injured accident
Brett is a great lawyer. When I first went in for a consultation, he had explained everything well to me and told me he was able to help me. It didn’t even take up to a year and he got me a good amount of settlement. I didn’t have to do anything at all he basically touch based with me once we came to an agreement. I would recommend on going to Brett again in the future and I would also refer anyone to him if anyone needs a lawyer, he’s the one to depend on. So thank you Brett!!!!

A Great Attorney
Thanks to Attorney Brett Eckstein, My daughter suffered significant injuries to her face from a dog bite. After getting repeated phone calls from the insurance company of the dog’s owner, my wife and I decided to consult an attorney. I contacted Cannon and Dunphy and was fortunately put in contact with Brett. Over the phone, I explained the circumstances of what occurred to my daughter and that the insurance company had contacted us multiple times to settle the claim. After our phone conversation, I met with Brett in his office. He went over the circumstances of the case. It was on his advice that we had a case worth pursuing. At no time did I feel pressured to go forward with the case, it was left completely up to my daughter, wife and I. Brett was able to set our minds at ease thus we went forward with the case. After a couple of months of work by Brett and his staff, the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. I never once had to do anything except sign a few forms and respond to a few emails. At the hearing with Brett was with us helping to put my daughter at ease and made the hearing non-threatening. After the judge approved the settlement, the judge commended Brett for his integrity in how he dealt with our case. Thank you again Brett. Rick, Kathy, and Megan

Wonderful to work with
I was in an accident in 2017 and I hired Brett and his firm to help me out. I don't know what I would have done without him. After being in a car accident, I didn't know what to do, my car was totaled, I had medical bills that needed to be reimbursed. He helped me negotiate everything with my car insurance and medical bills. He made sure I wasn't taken advantage of by my insurance company or the insurance of the person that hit me. He communicated everything so that I understood the process. He fought for me to get a settlement due to the injuries I sustained. I would recommend Brett to anyone that has been in an accident.

An unfortunate start to the New Year
Brett Eckstein work diligently with me and my case to ensure that I was able to get the best possible settlement after I was in a drunk driving accident on New Year's Day. I pray I never need him again but, if I am ever in an accident in the future Brett and Cannon & Dunphy will be my first call!

Brett Eckstein represented me in a car injury accident
Hiring Brett, I found him to be very professional and courteous. He explained the options and expectations with my case and was in communication with me during the entire process. It was reassuring to know I had a lawyer that was interested in me and not just the case. I was happy with the outcome and would highly recommend Brett to anyone.

Highly recommend
Mr. Eckstein always did an excellent job explaining things thoroughly. When I contacted him about my case he went through things step by step. When I contacted him about any questions he always got back to me in a timely manner. He is very knowledgeable and I would/will recommend him to anyone I know. I’m very thankful I had such a knowledgeable lawyer through this journey!

Brett Eckstein review
Brett Eckstein is the lawyer who handled the case for my brother Paul. Paul was involved in an accident where he was on a bicycle and was hit by an automobile. As his sister, we tried to work with the insurance company and got nowhere. We made one call to Cannon/ Dunphy and within a few days Brett met with us and took on the case. Brett knew exactly how to handle the insurance company from day one. He kept us informed with each step he took to make sure Paul got a very fair settlement. We would recommend Brett to anyone who ever has a personal injury claim and needs help to resolve their case!

Brett Eckstein - A Cut Above the Rest
Brett Eckstein was highly professional as he represented me for an injury I sustained in an automobile accident and his dedication allowed me to receive the highest possible settlement without going to trial. I was treated like a person seeking legal assistance from Brett, not simply a case file. The personal attention he provided to my claim was impressive. He was always available for taking my calls or answering emails and each time we communicated he was well versed on my situation. He was able to reference details we previously spoke about and provided solid legal guidance as we strategized to bring closure to my case. Looking back, taking on the insurance company on my own would have been overwhelming. Retaining Cannon & Dunphy, was the best decision I could have made. I did not have to deal with the insurance company or any other attorneys, Brett did all the work. I could not happier with the results.

Brett Eckstein - Grade A Lawyer, one of Midwest Best
To simply put it, Brett Eckstein is a wonderful attorney. He works one on one, hands on with his clients to make sure each individual clients needs are met and that they are satisfied with both their legal representation and their experience working with him. Brett is timely with his communication and responses, and always does his due diligence in getting and providing answers to any questions or concerns his clients may have, while also being open to any suggestions his clients have. He puts in the effort to make sure his clients get the best results/settlements in each of the cases he represents. He takes the time to get to know each of his individual clients both personally and professionally. When starting your relationship with Brett it seems as though he is just your lawyer, but towards the end of your relationship and experience with working with him, he will become not only part of your trusted network and a trusted confidant, but also part of your family. I am very pleased with my experience, and would like to express gratitude in having the pleasure of working with him. I will be recommending him to anyone in need of legal representation and advice.

Exceptional Performance
Mr. Eckstein is associated with the firm of Cannon & Dunphy. This was the second firm I retained to address an injury that resulted from an at-fault driver of a local school bus contractor. The initial legal representative was a great disappointment. Communication was almost non-existent, they constantly required additional information, the para-legal appeared hostile at times, I never spoke with a licensed attorney, and the case dragged on. Mr. Eckstein and his assistant, Ms. Thomas, were the exact opposite. They communicated openly, called with frequent updates, took complete charge of my case, and negotiated an equitable settlement. I never had to question what was happening with my case, and it was resolved quickly. I cannot compliment my legal team enough. I would recommend this legal firm, and this attorney specifically to handle any personal-injury litigation.

Appreciation to Brett
We are writing to share our gratitude to and positive experience with Brett Eckstein for his work on our behalf. Over the past four years, Brett proved to not only be knowledgeable but also adept at translating legalese into common terminology. He frequently let us know what to expect, provided his insight into an estimated range to our settlement, and was responsive to our questions. He exercised patience and understanding throughout the process. His excellence in communication and personable demeanor made a difficult time much more manageable. Again, we cannot say enough about Brett’s work on our behalf and would highly recommend his service to others.
