BRENT DORIAN BREHM

Brent Dorian Brehm is an accomplished attorney practicing in the fields of disability, life, health, and long term care insurance benefits. He has spent his entire career in the trenches battling multi-billion dollar insurance companies to protect his client's rights. His efforts have been recognized by three legal magazines, being named a Lawyer on the Fast Track by The Recorder, a Top 20 Lawyer Under 40 by the Daily Journal, and a Super Lawyer by Super Lawyers magazine.

Brent has spent his career with Kantor & Kantor LLP – one of the preeminent firms in the area of ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) and bad faith insurance litigation. While with the firm, Brent has resolved well over 250 disputes with insurance companies on behalf of his clients. As a partner of the firm, Brent has developed a body of motion and trial experience few attorneys have compiled to this point, or any point, in their career.

Brent was born in Los Angeles’ San Gabriel Valley and now lives in its San Fernando Valley with his wife and their three energetic daughters. Before having children, he had the time to train for, and completed, two Ironman distance triathlons, the New York Marathon, the Los Angeles Marathon, and a 200-mile bike ride through Death Valley. He currently enjoys cartography.

Client Testimonials

  • Your compassion for me and my situation is very much appreciated.

    “My thanks to you for pursuing my case with vigor. I don't know much about how these legal things are handled, but I could tell by your communications with me, making sure I was always informed, that you were on top of it all. Also, you were ALWAYS available to me to answer questions, and your compassion for me and my situation is very much appreciated. I have had limited exposure to the legal system and attorneys, but I have never been able to just call and talk to them, as I could with you. I always had to speak with someone in the office that couldn't really answer my questions.”
