A New York City Personal Injury Law Firm
Sullivan Brill is a New York City-based litigation firm representing individuals who have been injured by accidents, defective products or medical malpractice, or whose civil rights have been violated by police. The firm was founded in 2001 by Joseph Sullivan and Steven Brill, based upon the principle that every individual deserves to have representation equal to that of corporations, insurance companies and government agencies. In every case, Sullivan Brill is committed to leveling the playing field between individuals and those powerful entities.
In all of the firm's personal injury work, Sullivan Brill is committed to giving each client the personal attention of an experienced attorney. The legal team possesses the trial experience and knowledge to handle the most complex personal injury, medical malpractice or products liability litigation.
For the majority of personal injury cases, Sullivan Brill helps clients throughout New York City (NYC - Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island), Nassau County, Suffolk County and Westchester County, and surrounding counties of New York. For mass tort or other large-scale cases, the firm's product liability lawyers assist clients throughout the United States.
Experienced, Successful Trial Attorneys
Sullivan Brill is different from many other law firms in that the attorneys are courtroom lawyers who have exceptional experience trying cases. All attorneys of Sullivan Brill started their careers in positions that allowed them to gain valuable trial experience and all of them have amassed exceptional records of success at trial.
After graduating cum laude from Temple University School of Law, Joseph Sullivan started his legal career defending insurance companies and corporations. He gained valuable trial experience, including victories against some of the top plaintiffs' trial attorneys in New York City. Nevertheless, he also saw firsthand how individuals could be outgunned in such litigation. In 2001, he left his former partners and began focusing on representing individuals who were injured due to the wrongful acts of others. His 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 settlements for clients injured in automobile accidents, construction accidents, scaffolding accidents, fall down accidents, sexual assaults as well as those who have been injured due to medical malpractice, defective products and violations of the liquor law.
Steven Brill had been defending clients accused of criminal offenses since graduating from Temple University School of Law in 1994. His commitment to defending the accused from the extraordinary power of the state and federal government made him a natural ally. He had exceptional experience handling serious felony cases, from homicide, robbery and sex offenses to drug trafficking, conspiracy and white collar crimes. Since co-founding the firm, Steven Brill has continued to defend the accused in federal district courts of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C., and Florida. Steven Brill has been involved in several notable and high-profile criminal cases in the state and federal courts. He also handles related civil lawsuits against police for brutality, false arrest, malicious prosecution and other civil rights abuses.
Committed To The Needs Of The Injured And The Accused
Since its inception in 2001, Sullivan Brill has grown from two law partners to a team of eight attorneys and four support staff. The firm remains true, however, to the principles on which it was founded — providing exceptional representation and individual attention to accident victims. Where some injury firms angle to settle claims quickly and move on to the next case, we strive to help clients with their immediate problems and to serve their best long-term interests. We assist with no-fault, workers' compensation, victims' compensation and disability claims to ensure clients are reimbursed for medical bills and lost wages. Meanwhile we prepare for trial, knowing that large corporations and insurance companies will hold back on full compensation as long as possible or even push the case to a jury trial. This approach has served our clients well, as reflected in our verdicts and settlements.
