Brendan Flynn represents individuals, businesses, and other entities in a broad range of civil litigation practice areas, including employment litigation, business disputes, and litigation related to the flooding of homes and businesses. Mr. Flynn gained extensive trial experience and a reputation for diligence and integrity during his more than five years of service as an Assistant District Attorney in Philadelphia. He rose through the ranks to the Homicide Unit, where he was responsible for the investigation, charging, and prosecution of vehicular homicides, as well as prosecuting other types of homicides and non-fatal shootings. During his time as a prosecutor, Mr. Flynn handled thousands of cases, tried eleven jury trials and hundreds of non-jury trials, motions, and preliminary hearings, and successfully prosecuted a number of serious and high-profile matters, including a hate crime against a synagogue in Northeast Philadelphia and a challenging attempted murder case in the Olney section of the City.
Prior to becoming an attorney, Mr. Flynn served locally in Bucks County as the Military and Veterans Affairs Director on the staff of U.S. Congressman Patrick J. Murphy, the first Iraq war veteran in Congress. In this capacity, Mr. Flynn played a role in finalizing the agreement to establish Washington Crossing VA National Cemetery in Upper Makefield Township.
In his free time, Mr. Flynn enjoys traveling domestically and internationally with his wife, Lara, watching baseball and football (including his Coast Guard Academy Bears football team), reading history, and riding bikes around Yardley with his son Jackson, a first grader in the Pennsbury School District.
