A lifelong Minnesotan, Brandon Thompson’s work ethic and compassion are a product of his blue-collar upbringing. His grandfather was a mechanic, his dad was an electrician at the Ford plant, and he was the first person in his family to attend college. With that background, Brandon dedicated his entire legal career to representing individuals and families who have suffered serious harm and must confront powerful forces to achieve justice.
Brandon began his career with a small Minneapolis firm, and then moved to Robins Kaplan several years later. He believes there is no greater professional honor than being asked to help people when they are facing the darkest times of their lives.
