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 senior litigation associate, 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.

Client Testimonials

  • The light at the end of the tunnel was masked, but we found it!

    “I'm sending my heartfelt wishes to you and your team for a wonderful holiday.

The light at the end of the tunnel was masked, but we found it! And so, cheers to you and your incredible team. Have a wonderful and safe new year.”

  • I've already mentioned your firm to my family and friends and how wonderful you have been treating me.

    “I've already mentioned your firm to my family and friends and how wonderful you have been treating me. Hopefully I will not ever have the need to refer someone to you because that would mean they would be in a similar situation as myself. But, if that were to ever happen, I would absolutely refer them to your company.”

  • You are the light in the darkness for all of us.

    “Lisa- You are the light in the darkness for all of us in the eating disorder community. I believe that you were born to take on these challenges.”

  • With you in my corner, I felt enabled and no longer alone.

    “Seemingly at the end of my rope with nowhere to turn, a friend suggested I call the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, who referred me to you. From our first contact I began to feel hope where there had been none. You took over all communication with the insurance company. You kept me posted as things progressed and advised me as to each necessary action. What a relief you were! With you in my corner, I felt enabled and no longer alone. Some big insurance companies feel emboldened to take arbitrary action against those who do not have the resources to defend what is rightfully theirs. Thank goodness for people like you who advocate for folks in need. In closing, please know how very much our association has meant. You have restored my faith in the goodness of people and renewed my confidence in the future. I am forever grateful.”

    “We appreciate that you found merit in our case, and that you were both willing and able to be present at the mediation. We believe that the arguments you made in our favor to the mediator were able to influence the outcome towards resolution that we could feel satisfied with. In the end, we believe that your counsel, your support, and the arguments you made on our behalf at the mediation resulted in a more positive outcome for our case than we could have otherwise expected. Throughout you were always professional, but direct and clearly firm on our position. We thank you for your efforts to resolve our dispute to our satisfaction, and wish you continued success.”
