As a partner in the Los Angeles Office, Brian T. Dunn was originally hired as a specialist in civil rights litigation, with an emphasis on police misconduct cases. He has handled many of the Los Angeles office s most high profile police misconduct cases, including those involving Reginald Denny and Geronimo Pratt. Mr. Dunn was also instrumental in prosecuting the litigation surrounding the tragic shootings of Devin Brown ($1.5 Million Settlement), Tyisha Miller ($3 Million Settlement), Mario Paz ($3 Million Settlement), William Wilkins ($3.5 Million Settlement), and Michael Anderson ($2.3 Million Settlement), cases which not only brought multimillion dollar settlement awards to the plaintiffs, but additionally resulted in unprecedented changes in the departmental policies of the Los Angeles, Riverside, El Monte, and Oakland Police Departments.In recent years, Mr. Dunn has expanded his areas of focus to include premises liability, auto & truck negligence, and severe personal injury cases. He was lead counsel for the plaintiffs in the cases of Sutton, et al. v. Joe Coehlo Trucking, et al., and Bentwood, et al. v. Host Marriott, et al., both of which were auto & truck negligence cases culminating in multimillion dollar settlements. Additionally, Mr. Dunn was lead trial counsel in the 2003 jury trial of Keith Nelson v. Los Angeles Unified School District, a premises liability case which resulted in a $7.8 million gross verdict for the plaintiff.Brian has recently teamed-up with Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley on the Three Strikes Reform Act of 2006, a proposed initiative that would mandate 25-years-to-life sentences be imposed after a third offense only if that offense falls under specified exceptions or is a serious or violent felony.In 2006, Mr. Dunn was honored by the Los Angeles Daily Journal as one of the Top 20 Under 40" attorneys in California, and has been honored as a Super Lawyer by Los Angeles Magazine in 2006 and in 2004.In 2008, Mr. Dunn s clients have been blessed with several significant court victories in jury trials, including an historic $1.36 Million dollar jury verdict in Winston Hayes v. County of Los Angeles, arising out of the highly publicized videotaped shooting of Winston Hayes by Los Angeles County Sheriff s deputies, in which Mr. Dunn served as lead trial counsel, as well as a $6.87 Million dollar jury verdict in Sandra Griffin v. City of Los Angeles, in which Mr. Dunn served as co-counsel, along with Cochran Firm attorneys Joseph Barrett and Mariel Gerlt. Additionally, in 2008, Mr. Dunn won his first civil rights case in the California Supreme Court, after a unanimous decision in Steven Yount v. City of Sacramento, a ruling which expands the rights of arrestees subject to police misconduct. In September of 2008, Mr. Dunn, along with partner Joseph Barrett, were nominated for the significant honor of Trial Lawyers of the Year , by the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles.As a licensed attorney in multiple jurisdictions, Mr. Dunn is a member of the State Bar of California and the State Bar of Nevada, and has practiced in the United States District Courts for the Central District of California, Eastern District of California, Northern District of California, and has been admitted to the U. S. District Court for the District of Nevada.
