Mr. Brodsky’s legal career is unique in that in most of his practice areas, he has represented each side at one point. This gives him a distinct perspective on handling cases and often allows him to resolve cases in a more timely, efficient and favorable manner for his clients.

Mr. Brodsky zealously advocates for each of his clients, using his substantial knowledge to achieve the best possible results.
He has also represented both plaintiffs and defendants in personal injury matters, including businesses who have been sued by customers and others who were injured on their property. Given Mr. Brodsky’s depth of experience in personal injury law, he can often achieve settlements that help his clients move forward quickly. However, with decades of experience in all aspects of litigation, Mr. Brodsky is not hesitant to take cases to trial when necessary. He has handled tens of thousands of depositions and countless trials. He utilizes his knowledge and experience to counsel his clients on the best course of action — and to help them achieve the best outcome for their case.
Mr. Brodsky also provides trusts and estates services to his clients, including drafting and contesting trusts and wills. His knowledge of trusts and estates dovetails with his other practice areas, enabling him to advise clients on how their proposed actions may impact their future estate plans. This may include divorce, child custody and support issues as well as other matters, such as structuring settlements or establishing businesses. Because Mr. Brodsky has such a wide range of experience, he can provide comprehensive legal advice to his clients.
