Patrick Brown Esq.

Of Counsel to Losi-Gangi

Patrick J. Brown counsels the law firm and has been practicing law since the date of his admission to the bar in 1977. Mr. Brown is a litigator who limits his practice to the area of serious personal injury, white collar criminal defense and commercial litigation.

He was admitted to practice in the United States District Court for the Western District of New York and all of the trial courts in New York State. He has litigated seven-figure personal injury cases through verdict and has tried a number of high-profile criminal cases, including cases involving police corruption and misfeasance by licensed professionals. He was also a member of the defense team for the so-called Lackawanna Six, and one of the first prosecutors in the country under the Patriot Act. Mr. Brown has also argued many appeals in both New York State and federal appellate courts.

Mr. Brown is a member of a number of professional organizations including the New York State Bar Association, Erie County Bar Association, where he was a director. He is also a member of the Western New York Trial Lawyers Association, where he was also a director. He is a Million Dollar Advocates Forum® and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum® Life Member.

Recognizing that service to the client is the hallmark of proper legal practice, Mr. Brown prides himself on frequent client communication in order to maximize client goals. He strongly believes that in order to effectively represent a client, a lawyer must first understand how the legal problem is affecting the client on a personal level. This is especially applicable in cases where the client has been seriously injured or is facing criminal investigation or was involved in a commercial dispute.
