Brian J. Conneran-Weig

About me


My entire legal career has been dedicated to assisting my clients to the best of my ability. I have years of experience representing inured persons in accident claims, slip and fall, product liability, medical negligence, wrongful death, workers compensation and all manner of catastrophic injuries. 


I also have years of experience defending individuals and companies sued by injured persons.  My experience as defense counsel allows me to aggressively advocate for my clients.  I know what is necessary to place my client's cases in the best light possible and I dedicate myself to obtaining maximum recovery on behalf of my clients.


My experience also includes defending my clients in misdemeanor traffic and DUI charges.  I can help you through this difficult time to achieve the best possible outcome.


The right attorney makes all the difference in the outcome and how you feel about the resolution of your case.  Make sure the attorney you select is knowledgeable, keeps you informed as to the progress of your case and is accessible to answer questions.  These are the things I  pledge to all of my clients.
