We are excited to announce the addition of Jeff Storms and the firm’s corresponding name change.
Jeff Storms is an accomplished attorney in the areas of personal injury and civil rights, who has worked on several significant cases. He was named a 2013 “Attorney of the Year” by Minnesota Lawyer for his work on a $3.075 Million Dollar police brutality wrongful death—the second largest police brutality settlement in Minnesota history. Jeff was also part of a team of class counsel who obtained a $2 Million Dollar settlement for violations of the Drivers Privacy Protection Act—this settlement was reported to be the largest DPPA settlement in U.S. history. His experience also includes representing clients on school injuries, medical malpractice injuries, and commercial vehicle crashes. Jeff has been named a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers Magazine the past two years.
Eric Newmark and Jill Brisbois are joined by Jeff Storms to create one of Minnesota’s premier criminal defense and personal injury boutiques. Eric is a Minnesota State Bar Association Certified Criminal Trial Specialist—a distinction held by very few lawyers—and Super Lawyers Magazine has named him a “Super Lawyer” every year since 2000. Eric has earned jury acquittals in a wide variety of criminal cases including first-degree murder, criminal sexual conduct, felony drug charges, and driving charges with fatalities. Jill is an extremely talented trial lawyer who has earned jury acquittals in a number of high profile criminal cases including first-degree murder, criminal sexual conduct, assault, and driving charges. Jill has been named a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers Magazine the past two years.
