Lee Brown


Their courtroom presence may bring to mind the fictional legal figures from television and movies, but the real-life successes of The Brown Law Firm aren't glamorously achieved in just a few short minutes. Their commitment to clients includes long hours, tedious work and tremendous preparation. The Brown Law Firm is dedicated to a purpose - protecting the interests of those who have been harmed by the negligence of others. Drawing on extensive collective trial experience, this full-service, personal injury firm has leveled its sights on assisting those who have suffered due to product failures and negligence.


Their work over the past decade - both as individual attorneys and as a firm - has been widely recognized by their legal peers and the media. Lee Brown, who is licensed to practice in both Texas and Oklahoma, has been honored as one of the The Best Lawyers in America and a Texas Super Lawyer. The firm's attorneys are routinely sought out to speak at national and international conferences on the litigation strategies they pioneered in motor vehicle, trucking and consumer product cases, and the firm's use of technology in the courtroom.


The lawyers at The Brown Law Firm take great pride in being trial attorneys. Whether securing trial verdicts for record amounts, settling multi-million-dollar cases for the victims of defective airbags or the victims of car or tractor-trailer accidents, or helping increase awareness of the dangers posed by drunk drivers, the firm remains diligent in its representation of individuals in their pursuit of civil justice.
