OUR TEAM


Roland Brown | Partner

Since Roland was a young child, he always remembers standing up for the underdog. Whether it was protecting other children from bullies or speaking to teachers on behalf of a classroom, he was always a leader whose advocacy lead to positive results. 

After graduating from college with a degree in Finance he pursued a Master’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance. It was during the pursuit of his Master’s degree that Roland decided that he wanted to perfect his negotiation and litigation skills by earning a law degree and becoming a licensed attorney. After completing his law degree, he also earned an L.L.M. in taxation.

Prior to starting The Law Office of Roland Brown, his professional portfolio included working at a law firm focusing on corporate law and complex tax litigation. In addition to his corporate background, Roland also has experience with employment law and has a large knowledge base with Employee Retired Income Security Act (ERISA).

As an attorney, the skills and techniques learned from repetition and practice are far less valuable than the ability to create and innovate.

Roland is an accomplished litigator and a battle tested, well respected trial attorney. His comfort in the courtroom combined with his business background attributes to his ability to get the job done.   Whether it’s defending a corporation in a multi-million-dollar lawsuit or representing an individual accused of a serious crime, he is a proven winner that never settles for the status quo.  He is just as comfortable standing up against the “Goliath” hospital in a complex medical malpractice case as he is representing a small business owner in a breach of contract lawsuit. His diverse background covers a wide range of litigation that undoubtedly benefits his clients. He is always ready to put the gloves on to fight for his clients.
