Having helped injured individuals for over thirty years now, Attorney Gary Brod has established himself as one of Pennsylvania’s most trusted personal injury lawyers. Brod admits he lives, breathes, eats and sleeps his chosen profession and no one can attest to his passion better than the thousands of clients Mr. Brod has been proud to serve.
Gary Brod was born in Philadelphia, where his parents also grew up. A son of a WWII veteran, the young Brod was greatly inspired by his parents’ strong work ethic, both raising three children while working full-time until retirement.
During his latter high school years, Brod took on his first job as a food and beverage vendor at Phillies home games and Army Navy games. He never stopped working since, taking on various odd jobs through college. During summers he was a house painter by day and a Yellow Cab driver at night. Christmas and spring breaks found him driving cabs for other companies in outlying suburban counties.
The Brod Law Firm
Brod completed law school with flying colors and proceeded to work in a general litigation firm. The firm handled various cases such as insurance defense, criminal defense, divorce, and civil rights, immersing the young lawyer in courtroom litigation.
He later found a more secure position at a firm as a personal injury trial attorney – a job that was more in line with his passion for helping real people. He left this secure job, however, soon after getting married, deciding to pursue his vision of running his own practice instead.
Clients today occasionally ask Mr. Brod, “How did this firm come about? Did you inherit it? Or did you possibly take over another firm?” In truth, Brod established his practice on his own, and he started out with barely a handful of cases. He built his firm brick by brick, one client at a time.
“I treated each case as if it was my only case, because it was!” Brod admits.
Going For The “Home Run” in Every Single Case
At the time, his wife was making a modest income as an early childhood educator. Brod knew that his survival and success were dependent on his clients’ satisfaction, so he quickly developed the habit of “going for the home run” in every single case, no matter how big or small.
Brod opened his Philadelphia office 30 years ago, and after seven years, he was able to open a second office in Reading. A few years later, he also established a presence in Bala Cynwyd. Through the decades, he has been able to reach more and more people needing legal help for their injuries.
Hard Work Produces Satisfying and Life-Changing Results For the Injured
For Gary Brod, nothing can replace the realization that his hard work produces satisfying and life-changing results for the injured. “Whenever I am handing my injured client’s recovery check to them,” he muses, “I feel as though I’m giving them back a piece of their life.”
His experience has also instilled in him the understanding that being entrusted with a person’s representation is a weighty responsibility.
“When a person entrusts me with their case and I accept to represent them, I don’t take that relationship and responsibility lightly,” Brod says. As a result, his firm regularly has individuals coming to his offices after being referred by his first generation of clients.
Leading Personal Injury Lawyer in Philadelphia
Today, Gary Brod is a leading personal injury lawyer in Philadelphia and a recipient of many national awards. In addition, he is an unrelenting champion of the rights of injured persons. Since 1987, for example, he has consistently contributed to the non-profit organization LAWPAC. They work at the state and national level to promote the constitutional right of all persons to have unimpeded access to the courts for claims that result from the wrongful actions of individuals, corporations, and governmental entities.
Gary Brod’s diligent and fearless work for injured individuals comes from his deeply rooted passion and appreciation for his profession. He developed this outlook during his humble beginnings and to this day Mr. Brod appreciates the opportunity to create a positive impact in each client’s life.
