Small Firm Responsiveness, Large Firm Results

Our firm’s founding partners both spent years in large law firms. They have handled large, complex cases and understand what it takes to win when the stakes — and dollar values — are high. However, at Browning|Hocker, our emphasis is on remaining accessible to our clients throughout their legal proceedings. You will start and finish your case with the same attorney, and your attorney will always be available to provide updates and answer your questions.

2 Attorneys, Two Powerful Advocates For You

Our firm’s founding attorneys have focused their practice on the areas of employment law and business litigation within the larger field of civil litigation. Each attorney has more than 20 years of experience as trial lawyers and knows how to fight for the best results for their clients, whether they are defendants or plaintiffs in a case.
