Laura Brown

Brown Trial Firm

Laura is a third generation trial attorney. Both her father and grandfather were trial attorneys, and she grew up watching both of them take cases to trial in Texas. Now, with over 27 years of trial experience herself, Laura is recognized as a leader within the birth injury litigation field and as a principal of the Brown Trial Firm. In addition to her experience, Laura has a track record of success: winning multiple multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for children with Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE), Cerebral Palsy (CP), and other birth injuries.

Laura attended Baylor University and was a premedical student. She graduated from Baylor with a degree in biology. But, as the old saying goes, the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree; she was destined for the law.

She went to Baylor Law and graduated in 1992. Her premedical background was great training as she spent seven years defending medical negligence cases with another Waco law firm before joining Dale in 2000. Through the Brown Trial Firm, which focused on birth injury cases throughout the nation, Laura has sponsored educational resources and community support centers for birth injury, including:

Laura’s advocacy has been recognized among her peers. She is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, a Chapter President of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) and also serves as co-chair of the Birth Trauma Litigation Group (BTLG) and co-editor of the BTLG newsletter.

She also represents people who have been injured in serious trucking and automobile accidents, and has a track record of multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements at Williams and Brown.

At Baylor Law, Laura has the privilege of teaching Personal Injury Trial Law and Advanced Trial Preparation. Laura has also taught seminars to nurses and to attorneys educating on how to avoid preventable medical errors that result in birth injuries.

She has also been recognized as a Texas Super Lawyer, and she is a member of the Million and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates forum because of the past multi-million dollar jury verdicts and settlements that she has achieved for her clients.

Laura is an active in the broader legal community, serving as a member of the American Association for Justice, the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, the Association of Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America and the Motor Vehicle Trial Lawyers Association.
