Who We Are

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.

After graduating 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, our firm has remained true 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.
