Biography

A partner of the firm in its White Plains office, Brian Stapleton's practice focuses on the defense of large-exposure products liability, labor law, wrongful death and other liability claims across the country. Brian engages in a significant amount of Second Amendment litigation, at both the trial and appellate levels, in New York and across the country. He also engages in extensive appellate advocacy in the courts of New York and the federal judiciary.

As a highly experienced trial attorney, Brian has obtained verdicts in over 100 cases and has tried numerous civil cases involving wrongful death, design and manufacturing defects, medical malpractice, and bankruptcy fraud. He has won high-profile criminal cases of murder and kidnapping, and has successfully defended complex multi-defendant RICO cases in the U.S. District Courts for the Districts of New York and Connecticut.

With several reported cases to his credit, Brian has successfully briefed and argued numerous appellate cases, most notably in Illinois v. Dante Brown.
