Brad Bonneau


I have lived and worked in Stockton and Lodi and recently I was injured and needed the services of a good injury accident attorney... I had no idea which accident injury law practice to choose to represent me. I remember searching on Google for "The Best" injury accident law firm. That is how I was fortunate enough to find the offices of Brown and Gessell. I was represented by Mr. Doug Gessell in an accident injury case and honestly I couldn't have been more pleased with the work Mr. Gessell did in securing a very favorable outcome for me. I would highly recommend Brown and Gessell attorneys at law if you have been hurt or injured. Their office is extremely professional and they offer the best service available in my humble opinion! Thank you so much Doug! Your the best!

Marc Lewis


Attorney Steve Brown and his staff treated me with respect, listened carefully and answered all my questions. They fought vigorously and successfully got the best result possible from the insurance company, and negotiated a reduction in my medical bills. Thank you Steve and team for all your hard work! I would recommend your office to anyone who had a personal injury, hands-down.

Hy Cohen


My husband and I would give the Law Offices of Brown & Gessell ten stars if that were possible. Mr. Brown is not only very professional, but he is also very assertive, aggressive, and has great integrity. His office staff is very friendly and professional. We absolutely recommend their services to anyone.

Elidia Molina


I was hesitant to pursue legal action following surgery, not knowing if that was the Christian thing to do. Yet, my life had been changed and my orthopedic surgeon wasn't offering to help with any of the medical expenses incurred now or in the future due to his negligence. After speaking with Mr. Brown, he assured me that a lawsuit was the course to take to make things right for the injury I had sustained. Not knowing how to proceed with such things, Mr. Brown guided me through the entire process, from collecting records and information, through court proceedings. His confident presence in the courtroom made me feel that I was being fairly represented. He took a personal interest in relieving my anxiety during an otherwise stressful period. Simply said, this is a man with integrity to do the right thing.

Judie Fritz


I wanted to thank Mr. Brown for the discussion that we had related to my accident/injury. He was very helpful and informative. He took notes of the issues and the concerns that I had. He provided feedback and information relative to my accident/injury. If you are in need of this type of service, I would talk to him.
