darwin overson about - About Brian Schwechter


Brian has the extensive experience and litigation skills needed to take on even the most difficult cases and win. Brian started his legal career in the trenches as an insurance defense attorney with the respected Chicago law firm of Thomas L. Burdelik and Associates. While at Burdelik, Brian learned from the best the steps insurance companies take to minimize the verdicts or settlements plaintiffs receive. Over his time there, Brian was trained in all aspects of personal injury matters and led 10 trials to verdict.

Brian then went on to his true calling, helping plaintiffs fight the same insurance companies he used to defend. Brian worked with one of the premier, established personal injury firms in South Florida. While there, Brian settled approximately 1000 pre-litigation cases.

In cases where the insurance company did not want to work with him, Brian took the gloves off and filed those cases in court. While a case was in litigation, Brian was always very hands-on and managed all aspects of the discovery, mediation and trial work. With his skills and successful trial experience, Brian is not afraid to battle big insurance companies in court and take your case to trial to obtain the results you deserve.
