Steven L. Brown and Douglas A. Gessell both came from insurance defense law firms. Having been on the defense side of litigation, they wanted to create a law firm representing individuals and families with serious personal injuries and challenges and needing real help.
They decided on a location that was central to California and the San Joaquin Valley. Stockton allowed them to provide representation to a broad range of clients. Mr. Gessell and Mr. Brown are both bilingual, with Mr. Gessell being commissioned as a consulting attorney with the Mexican Consulate in Sacramento.
Both bring a wealth of experience in the areas of medical malpractice and personal injury cases. The firm started as two partners and one secretary and has grown into a staff of four. Both Mr. Brown and Mr. Gessell came from larger firms, and they envisioned a personal form of representation from the start of a case to its completion. Your attorneys at Brown & Gessell are the same attorneys that will manage and direct your case from inception to resolution.
