I have helped injured people and their families throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin for over 30 years. When you've been hurt, medical bills pile up and your wages are either reduced or eliminated as you recover from your injuries. If you've lost a loved one their wages, care, comfort and support are lost forever. I make sure you and your family are fairly compensated for the injuries you've suffered. It has been my privilege to help families through the toughest times and to help get them back on their feet.
I grew up in the Mississippi River Valley in Southeastern Minnesota before heading east to the Ivy League’s Dartmouth College. While at Dartmouth I was an English major and ran the Dartmouth Big Brothers/Big Sisters Program. My senior year was spent in the Honors English Program at London’s University College, and I graduated from Dartmouth in 1982. I earned my law degree from the University of Notre Dame Law School in 1985. While at Notre Dame I interned with the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA), and while still in law school, I was chosen as one of two law clerks to assist Robert Kutak as he re-wrote the American Bar Association’s Code of Professional Responsibility.
Following graduation, I joined Minnesota’s premier trial law firm, Robins, Kaplan, Miller and Ciresi in Minneapolis. While at Robins I handled cases all over the country involving catastrophic property losses from fires and building collapses to environmental pollution cases and bankruptcy claims.
After returning to Winona, I established Brosnahan Law Firm, P.A. in 1992, dedicated to helping injured people and their families. While in Winona I have represented over a thousand injured people or families who lost loved ones. Our clients have included several lawyers, judges, insurance adjusters and police and sheriff's deputies who were injured themselves or who asked me to represent thier family members who were injured or killed in auto and cycle crashes. I am flattered and proud that so many people who understand injury and death cases have chosen me to represent them and those they love. I'd be happy to help you too.
