Attorney Travis Brennan is a highly skilled and accomplished trial attorney who represents clients in claims involving medical malpractice, wrongful death, personal injury, and defective products. Travis is a fierce competitor with a tireless work ethic who is committed to standing up for people who have been wronged or injured through no fault of their own. He thrives when tackling complex challenges and facing down powerful opposition, including insurance companies.
Travis recognizes that every client is unique. He listens carefully to clients to understand the events related to their case, the nature of their injuries, and the different ways they have been impacted. This enables Travis to develop a successful legal strategy and serve as a strong and passionate advocate for his clients.
“Clients place tremendous trust in me to help them when a horrible event occurs in their life. I am committed to helping my clients navigate a complex and overwhelming system and to achieve the best results for my clients.”
Clients across Maine have entrusted Travis with some of the most complex and difficult cases involving surgical errors, misdiagnosis, delay in diagnosis, amputations, as well as catastrophic personal injury claims involving motor vehicle collisions resulting in injuries, including death, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and complex fractures.
Travis has achieved large jury verdicts and multi-million-dollar settlements in catastrophic cases throughout Maine. In September 2022, Travis won a $5,000,000 unanimous jury verdict on behalf of a man who now has permanent neurologic deficits because medical providers negligently overlooked his warning signs of a life-threatening condition. This case is notable for being the first civil jury trial in Cumberland County since the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic. Before the pandemic stopped civil jury trials in most of Maine, Travis won jury trials in five different counties across the State of Maine in 2019. In November 2019, he achieved a $1,200,000 jury verdict in a medical malpractice case in Aroostook County arising from a patient’s permanent leg injury caused by a hospital’s negligence in failing to diagnose and treat serious, ongoing internal bleeding. In December 2019, he followed that up by achieving an $848,000 jury verdict in a medical malpractice case in Penobscot County on behalf of a lobsterman who was injured by a surgeon during a botched hernia repair.
When this Maine native is not preparing for his next trial, he serves as a volunteer firefighter in his local town—a passion he developed nearly two decades ago when he became a firefighter and EMT. Travis’ passions include running and enjoying the Maine outdoors with his wife, daughter, and rescue dogs.
