Combined Years of Attorney Experience

I have been working with Brown & Carlson for over 16 years.  In particular, I have worked with Gina Uhrbom for the last 15 years and she is a great asset to those in the claims industry.  However, all of the professional’s at Brown & Carlson provide the highest level of professionalism, knowledge, dedication, and expertise that is greatly appreciated by myself, my employer, and my clients.  I am consistently impressed by Gina’s aggressive approach and willingness to think outside the box to fit our clients’ particular set of circumstances.

I have also attended many of their seminars and find them to be extremely helpful in keeping me updated on new case laws, rules, and regulations.  Overall, this firm is a fabulous partner to our claims service department and I look forward to working with them for many more years.

I co-founded Brown & Carlson, PA., in 1992. That year started with George Bush as President and ended with Bill Clinton as the President-elect. On average, the cost of a gallon of gas was $1.05. The Mall of America opened.

In the backdrop of these events, we wanted to create a law firm that would provide high-quality, collaborative, pragmatic, and effective insurance defense services at reasonable and competitive rates. We started with seven attorneys and seven support staff. We did not have e-mail or internet. Phone messages came on small sheets of paper. Correspondence was dictated, typed, and sent through the U.S. mail. If we wanted to communicate instantaneously, the only way to do so was by telephone.

Much has happened since 1992. Since then, we have had steady and sustained growth. We now have 27 attorneys and 35 support staff.

The World is a very different place from when we started the firm. Technology and modes of communication have changed dramatically. Litigation is moving at an ever faster pace.

One thing that has not changed, however, is our commitment to excellence. We look forward to serving you in the decades to come.
