Matthew T. Brand

Senior Attorney

Matthew Brand defends clients in civil litigation, in both the public and private sectors.

He counsels and defends cities, city employees, airports, insurance companies, insureds, and companies being sued for personal injury accidents, vehicle accidents, dangerous conditions of public property, public entity claims, workplace injuries, premises liability claims, civil rights, product accidents, and construction defects. His defense begins with a comprehensive investigation, to risk transfer methods, then to discovery and expert involvement, and ends with a full evaluation of the case in preparation for resolution events such as mediations, settlement negotiations, and dispositive motions. By providing experienced consulting to identify the risks and realities each case presents, it allows his clients to evaluate the case under a magnifying glass to determine the most prudent course of action for optimal results. With each resolution, Matthew has saved his clients hundreds of thousands of dollars in fees, costs, and judgments.
