Sample Cases

Irene Parodi was allergic to cigarette smoke in the mid-80s, before it became illegal to smoke in Federal work places. Ms. Parodi was denied disability retirement. Mr. Browne took her case all the way to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which issued a landmark decision reversing the earlier denial and granting Ms. Parodi's disability retirement.

Mr. Browne negotiated a successful settlement in a sexual harassment case against an employer in Federal Court in Los Angeles.

Mr. Browne successfully litigated a financial elder abuse case in Sacramento County for over three years against an aggressive law firm who had assigned five lawyers to oppose him. The case finally settled amicably.

Mr. Browne is presently defending a trustee who has been charged with mismanaging trust assets.

Representation of Litigation

A well-known Oakland CPA hired several lawyers to defend a claim that he mismanaged a trust for my beneficiary clients. After a lengthy trial, the court awarded Mr. Browne's clients over $2,000,000.
