About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

My goal is a quick and successful resolution for our clients.  My reputation is to fight for every penny that my client deserves.  Although I desire to settle for my client's best interests, the insurance companies and their counsel know that I will take them to trial if they don't settle.  And, I have achieved multi-million dollars in verdicts against those insurance companies that want to challenge me.

 

I focus on injury claims whether the client is injured in a wreck, while performing maritime work, or while performing other kinds of work.

If you find yourself with a case of this nature, especially if you live in the New Orleans Metro area and have no idea what to do with it. It would be in your best interest to send that client to Mr. Brandner if you'd like them to be well served."

Litigation Attorney | Nov 21
Relationship: Friend
"Michael and I met almost a year ago at Gerry Spence's Voir Dire seminar. This unique setting let me get to know the man behind the attorney. While I know that Michael is a hell of an attorney and any client would be lucky to have him, everyone says that about who they are endorsing. You should hire Michael because of the man he is outside the office. He's a strong father and husband. He's also a great friend that maintains friendships around the nation. There are many great attorneys out there, but I submit to you: who are they outside the office? Michael's character shines through in his representation of his clients. You want a lawyer who not only fights in the court, but also has his heart in it. You want a lawyer who cares for your family as much as you do. You want a lawyer who will care for you, because he will also fight that much harder. Hire Michael, a real trial attorney."
