Brian Drazin, a high-energy and productive trial attorney, has established a remarkable reputation representing clients in personal-injury cases. His courtroom skills and confidence are well known to the insurance companies and their defense lawyers who know and respect his courtroom record. He is well versed in cases involving automobile accidents, dangerous products, medical malpractice, fall down accidents and cases involving exposure to toxic substances. In recent years, he has secured some of the largest judgements in the region; he prevailed in an $18 million malpractice judgement in March, 2008. Today, at 49, he is the youngest of the three Drazin brothers, all of whom have followed in their father Louis M. Drazin's footsteps by championing the cause of accident victims.
Drazin and Warshaw has three offices located in Red Bank, Brick and Hazlet. The firm, which employs 11 attorneys and has over 70 employees in support, is perhaps the largest family-run practice in the nation. As a young lawyer, it was Brian along with his brother Dennis who won a major victory in Kenney vs. Scientific, Inc., a landmark toxic tort case involving approximately 100 plaintiffs and over 300 defendants. Drazin described the case as "the battle of a lifetime," due to complex legal and medical issues and because, "like David battling Goliath," he took on so many major chemical companies, generators and haulers of toxic waste.
As Chairman of the Judicial Committee and a past President of the New Jersey Chapter of the American Association of Trial Lawyers ATLA-NJ (now the New Jersey Association for Justice), Brian Drazin is front and center to legislative debates that are only getting hotter and include auto insurance reform as well as proposed changes in medical malpractice laws. Intensely focused and quick thinking - something of a family trait - Drazin's stature is likely to grow in New Jersey political and legal circles.
