Brent has spent a significant part of his practice representing national corporations and other defendants in product liability and product warranty cases involving motor vehicles, buildings, and consumer products, handling over 500 cases during his career. He represents the interests of self-insured and insurance companies in motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, products liability, and professional liability including attorney malpractice, real estate broker negligence, and fraud investigation. Brent also continues to represent insurance companies with the investigation and litigation of first party claims.
With the assistance of liability experts, Brent was recently able to prove that a tragic motor vehicle accident was not caused by the client but rather by the plaintiff and obtained a defense verdict at trial. In another case, through the use of medical expert testimony, Brent successfully attacked causation for injuries due to pre-existing factors and embellishment by the plaintiff as to limitations in daily activities. Subsequently, a defense verdict was returned by that jury.
Brent graduated from Mansfield University. There he served in a number of elected offices including president of the student government. Following graduation, he attended Ohio Northern University where he received two awards for academic achievement and was invited to serve on the University Law Review. After receiving his juris doctor, Brent served as law clerk to President Judge Robert Kemp for one year. For six years following his judicial clerkship, Brent practiced in a small, general practice firm with an emphasis in insurance defense litigation.
