about BrandonX+X+

Recently named one of Ohio’s Rising Stars, Brandon’s laid-back nature masks his fiercely competitive nature and “whatever it takes” attitude.

Known for ferociously tackling complex cases, Brandon revels in the setting of strategy and the challenge of problem solving to please his clients, focusing his practice on civil litigation, workers’ compensation and data breach/privacy.

Brandon has defended trucking companies in cases arising from catastrophic accidents involving multiple fatalities, and is involved in the Firm’s litigation sub-specialty of construction where he works with residential and commercial builders. He also serves as private counsel for auto dealerships.

He assists both private employers and state entities in navigating the workers’ compensation system.  He has represented clients in all phases of the process, from administrative hearings to appeals.

Brandon also spearheads the firm’s data breach/privacy concerns, and holds the certification of Certified Information Privacy Professional/U.S. (CIPP/US) from the International Association of Privacy Professional (IAPP).
