Brian Kent – Trial Work
Mr. Kent is a personal injury trial lawyer who has dedicated his legal career to helping others. After clerking for a federal court judge, he began his career as an Assistant District Attorney in the Montgomery County, Pennsylvania District Attorney’s Office. There, he prosecuted sex offenders in the criminal courts.

His recent case results include many multi-million dollar settlements.
In addition, his cases have been featured in local and national media. In a recent landmark case, he agreed to represent a man who sued a sitting state court judge in Delaware for child sex abuse. Despite receiving threats and backlash in the legal community, Mr. Kent persevered. The judge publicly admitted to the abuse and was disbarred.
