Jay Brown has achieved an exemplary record of jury verdicts, dismissals, and favorable settlements on disputes stemming from wide-spread catastrophes, complex contract disputes, fraud, insurance bad faith, deceptive trade practices, civil rights and catastrophic accidents. Jay supervises multi-case dockets where efficiency predominates and handles complex, high-stakes litigation as well.
His extensive experience allows him to evaluate cases “early on” including realistically identifying actual risk, based not on mere allegations but on concrete evidence and the likely perceptions of a jury.
Jay is highly regarded in the insurance industry and has skillfully navigated numerous commercial property insurers and adjusters through the murky waters of first party bad faith disputes, including catastrophes involving habitational properties, office buildings, retail complexes, and refineries. Due to his success in the courtroom, Jay has two board certifications from the Texas Board of Legal Specialization (civil trial law and personal injury trial law) and has been elected to the American Board of Trial Advocates, American College of Coverage and Extracontractual Counsel, Claims and Litigation Management Alliance, and Texas Super Lawyers.
