About Us

If you or a loved one is suffering from the debilitating effects of a traumatic brain injury, you have come to the right place.

The Brain Injury Law Center is a law office devoted to helping brain injury survivors and their families recover. Just as you require skilled doctors to assist in your recovery, you may also need an experienced attorney to help you seek compensation to alleviate the emotional and financial burdens this unwanted injury has placed on your family.

Building a strong case on your behalf takes experience and dedication. Our knowledge of the laws surrounding traumatic brain injuries, especially when considering therapy and recovery, is why we are internationally recognized.

While other firms accept brain injury cases as an exception — such as when they relate to a car accident — brain injury law is our focus area and signature case type.

It’s why other attorneys contact us when they need help with cases involving brain injuries.

Attorney David Holt

David B. Holt is a seasoned trial lawyer. A former police officer, Mr. Holt went to law school to serve the law at the highest level, ensuring violent offenders who terrorized the public were held accountable and prosecuted, particularly when involving gang-related and gun charges.

David’s tenacity for protecting the general public is often transferred into his passion for representing those who have been hurt by no fault of their own. David often represents victims of serious injuries after they have been involved in a serious car or truck accident, or have suffered a brain injury.

His courtroom experience, which includes hundreds of jury and bench trials ensures our clients are represented by a true trial lawyer and not just a lawyer who occasionally goes to trial.
