About

Brett Burlison

I’m a San Francisco Injury Attorney and trial lawyer. I’m a life member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and have been rated a Super Lawyer and Rising Star in Northern California by my peers every year since 2010. My firm has the resources and commitment to make sure that you are compensated and that justice is done.

I began my practice handling difficult cases in difficult jurisdictions. I took on big insurance companies, large manufacturers, employers that consistently put their workers at risk, and trucking companies. I have represented individuals in numerous jury trials and handled plaintiffs’ cases throughout California and Texas in both state and federal courts.

I do my best every day to help San Francisco area residents, their families and loved ones, to deal with catastrophic injuries caused by the negligence of others including corporations. I am an experienced trial lawyer and I bring passion and perseverance to every personal injury case I take on.

“I’ve defended companies for over a decade and Brett is one of the best plaintiff attorneys that I have encountered. I’ve referred him cases in the past and will do so in the future. If it was my case, I’d call Brett.”—Insurance Defense Attorney

Immediately prior to opening my own office, I was part of a large defense firm’s trial team. There I represented large corporations and excess insurance carriers in complex brain injury, product liability, and catastrophic injury matters.

It is precisely this background and the insight it has given me that enables me to pursue personal injury cases on behalf of plaintiffs and provide them with the compensation and justice they deserve.

I prepare each and every case as if trial is certain. I’m not going to tell you to settlement simply because it is the path of least resistance or the easiest thing to do. But I promise, whether I recommend settlement or that we take the case to trial that it will be in your best interest.

Simply stated, I’m an experienced personal injury attorney who brings passion and innovation to the representation of plaintiffs in personal injury and product liability, traumatic brain injury, workplace injury and wrongful death matters.

I have served as the Vice President of the Palo Alto Area Bar Association and Chairperson of its Trial Practice Forum, I am a member of the Bar Association of San Francisco, San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association, the American Association for Justice, Consumer Attorneys of California, and the Santa Clara County Bar Association.

I also maintain and manage a blog on this website dedicated to issues impacting injury victims, consumers, those interested in consumers’ rights, personal injury attorneys and the legal community. In addition, on my blog I try and answer common questions that injury victims may have about personal injury, product liability, wrongful death, and workplace injury matters. And occasionally, I even address politics.

If you or a family member have been injured, whether it is in an automobile accident or a trucking accident, or whether you have suffered a brain injury or spinal cord injury, or were injured by a defective product, in a workplace accident, slip and fall or trip and fall or other premises liability matter, call my office at (415) 293-8231. I’d like to help.
