Cleveland Medical Malpractice/Wrongful Death Lawyer


Brian Eisen graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Harvard College in 1988, where he majored in neurobiology. He earned his law degree from Harvard Law School in 1992, graduating cum laude. During law school, Mr. Eisen was a member of the environmental law review, and was awarded the prestigious Addison Brown Prize for Legal Writing. After graduating, Mr. Eisen earned the highest score on the following Ohio Bar Examination.

Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Eisen spent a year as a law clerk for the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, and then spent three years as a trial attorney for the United States Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., where he prosecuted white collar fraud cases. Mr. Eisen gained some notoriety when he took on Philip Morris in a case alleging that tobacco companies were violating prohibitions on television advertising by the strategic placement of billboards at sports venues. That case led to the removal of "The Marlboro Man" and other tobacco advertising from NFL, MLB, and NBA stadiums and venues around the country. It also whet Mr. Eisen's appetite for taking on big, well-funded litigation opponents.

Since joining the firm in 1996, Mr. Eisen has focused his practice on cases of medical negligence and wrongful death. He has been first chair trial counsel in more than 15 medical malpractice cases, and he has obtained dozens of multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients. Mr. Eisen also has won cases in the Courts of Appeals, as well as the Supreme Court of Ohio. He is licensed to practice in Ohio and Washington, D.C.

Mr. Eisen spent several years as a member of the Ohio Board of Bar Examiners, where he drafted questions and graded answers for the Ohio bar examination. Mr. Eisen also is a past chair of the Medical Negligence Committee of the Ohio Association for Justice, and past president of the Cleveland Academy of Trial Attorneys. As a result of his experience and success, Mr. Eisen has been invited to speak at various seminars on litigation, trial procedure, and medical negligence.

In his spare time, Mr. Eisen coaches baseball and soccer. His teams regularly are regarded as mediocre. He does not intend to "give up his day job."
