Personal Injury Attorney Joseph Sullivan

After graduating c um laude from Temple University School of Law, Joseph Sullivan started his legal career defending insurance companies and corporations. He not only gained valuable trial experience but saw firsthand how individuals were disadvantaged in litigation against corporations, insurance companies and government entities. In 2001, he left his former partners and began his own personal injury law firm, focusing on representing individuals who were injured due to the carelessness or intentional acts of others.

Mr. Sullivan's experience representing insurance companies and corporations has given him a unique understanding of how the opposition thinks and enables him to maximize settlements and verdicts for the firm's injured clients. He has obtained numerous significant recoveries for clients injured through automobile accidents, construction accidents, slips-and-falls, sexual assaults, lead paint ingestion, medical malpractice, defective products, animal bites and other forms of negligence.

Criminal Defense Attorney Steven Brill

After graduating from Temple University School of Law in 1994, Mr. Brill defended clients accused of criminal offenses until 2001, when he joined Mr. Sullivan in practice. Steven Brill has exceptional experience as a criminal defense lawyer, handling serious felony cases as well as misdemeanor cases. Since founding the firm, Steven Brill has continued to defend the accused in federal cases in all federal district courts of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., and South Florida, chiefly cases involving charges of international drug conspiracies, 924 cases, white collar crimes and securities fraud.
