Brent Dorian Brehm, a seventh year associate of Kantor & Kantor LLP, was recognized by the Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journal, as part of their “Top 20 Under 40” list of California’s emerging legal leaders, as a rising star in the California legal industry. Mr. Brehm has spent his entire career advocating for individual’s rights to disability, life, health, and long term care insurance benefits.
Mr. Brehm has spent his career with one of the preeminent firms in the area of ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) and bad faith insurance litigation, Kantor & Kantor, LLP. While with the firm, Mr. Brehm has resolved well over 150 disputes with insurance companies on behalf of his clients. As a litigation associate, Mr. Brehm has developed a body of motion and trial experience few attorneys have compiled to this point in their career.
At least 13 nationally reported decisions in his client’s favor (including five cases published in the official reporter and five trial judgments in which Mr. Brehm was lead counsel) speak as testament to Mr. Brehm’s advocacy skill and experience gained through practice.
Having established a track record of success early in his career, Mr. Brehm has made the transition to lead attorney on most of his cases. In one such case litigated in San Francisco, Mr. Brehm secured the first trial judgment in the nation on behalf of a plan participant against AT&T’s long term disability plan in the hotly contested case of Peterson v. AT&T Umbrella Ben. Plan No. 1, 2011 WL 5882877 (N.D. Cal. 2011). Last month, in a case tried in Los Angeles, Mr. Brehm received another favorable trial judgment, this time against Unum Life Insurance Company – the largest group disability insurer in the United States. (Mondolo v. Unum, 2013 WL 179711 (C.D. Cal. 2013)).
