Brian D. Guralnick - Palm Beach Injury AttorneyBrian D. Guralnick, Esquire – Founder and Managing Partner

My first encounter into the area of injury law unfortunately happened when my own mother’s malignant melanoma skin cancer was misdiagnosed by a local doctor. By the time the melanoma was properly diagnosed, the cancer had spread throughout her body and ultimately killed her. From this experience, I discovered that you need to do your own research, learn the medicine, and become a strong advocate. I was so passionate in my personal fight, that I decided I wanted to help out other inured accident victims.

After law school, I started out my legal career working for two prominent injury law firms. However, I learned that many large injury law firms did not give their clients and their cases the appropriate attention. Therefore, in 1998, I started my own law firm and accumulated an amazing, talented, and caring team with plenty of resources to take on the biggest insurance companies, such as State Farm, Allstate, GEICO, and Progressive.

What sets apart is that we get to know our clients and their cases on a personal level. Most of my team members consider each other like family, and we feel the same way with most of our clients. In my opinion, it is this combination of personal attention, along with the skill, passion, and resources, that enables to recover millions of dollars each year for our clients.

In my spare time, I enjoy working out, playing poker, skiing, good food and wine…and of course playing with our office dog. I also enjoy staying active in the community. I have been on the board of directors for various local charities, assisted many local political leaders, and I have been appointed to several city committees.

I am also the Vice President of the RDK Melanoma Foundation, which strives to raise awareness about lifesaving techniques for the early detection of skin cancer, especially melanoma. The foundation has been working locally and nationally since 1995 to educate students in grades K-12 on the importance of sun-safe behavior.

I also appeared on WPBF 25 News to talk about the importance of sun safety and how the foundation has collaborated with schools throughout Palm Beach County and Florida to implement a fun and educational contest for students – “The RDK Kinney Art Contest”. Watch the interview here.
