Sullivan & Brill, LLP
New York City Personal Injury Law Firm
Sullivan & Brill, LLP is a New York City-based litigation firm representing
individuals who have been injured by accidents, defective products, or
medical malpractice, or who suffered injuries when their civil rights
were violated by police. Our 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, LLP is committed
to leveling the playing field between individuals and those powerful entities.
In all of our firm's
personal injury work, we are committed to giving each client the personal attention of
an experienced attorney. Our
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, LLP 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, our product liability lawyers assist clients throughout the United States.
Experienced, Successful Trial Attorneys
Sullivan & Brill, LLP is different from many other law firms in that
our attorneys are courtroom lawyers who have exceptional experience trying
cases. All attorneys of Sullivan & Brill, LLP started our careers
in positions that allowed us to gain valuable trial experience and we
have amassed exceptional records of success at trial.
cum laude from Temple University School of Law, our managing partner,
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 our 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 individuals who have been injured due to medical
malpractice, defective products, and violations of the liquor law.
Steven Brill has 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 our 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
Since our inception in 2001, Sullivan & Brill, LLP has grown from two
law partners to a team of eight attorneys and four support staff. Our
firm remains true, however, to the principles on which we were 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 help our clients receive compensation 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.
