Brian Marcelle is a trial lawyer first and foremost. With 25 years of experience and having tried nearly 100 jury trials in both state and federal court, he knows that the best way to ensure success is to prepare every case as if it’s going to trial from the moment you start.
Marcelle specializes in complex business and multi-district litigation matters, as well as class action cases. His individual litigation focuses specifically on cases that involve catastrophic injury, including trucking, asbestos, railroad, and maritime claims.
As an Assistant District Attorney and an Assistant United States Attorney, there serving as Deputy Supervisor of the Strike Force Unit and Deputy Chief of Ethics, Marcelle spoke for victims in cases of violent crime, white-collar crime, racketeering and political corruption. Marcelle has spent the last ten years carefully selecting cases of injury or wrongdoing and aggressively litigating those cases. During his career, Marcelle has achieved incredible results for his clients by focusing on the details. When it comes to complex and contentious litigation, the difference between a good result and a great one comes down to those small details. True success occurs when Marcelle has gained the respect of everyone in the case—his client, opposing counsel, and the court.
