In every aspect, of every case, with every client — I focus on treating those that entrust us with their most sensitive matters to that of how I would my own family. Everything we strive for — it’s all about our clients. They are good people who find themselves in extremely difficult situations and fighting for justice for them is the most rewarding part of my job.
Brandon DuPree is an associate attorney who joined our Los Angeles, California asbestos team in 2016. After admission to the California Bar, he became one of our asbestos litigators.
“From the very beginning, I sensed that working at Weitz & Luxenberg was a great fit,” says Mr. DuPree. “I have had the opportunity to learn so much from our attorneys and brilliant co-workers — to see from the ground up what goes into building a successful case. I am incredibly privileged to work with such a talented and dedicated group of people.”
“Everything we do, everything we strive for — it’s all about our clients. They are good people in who find themselves in extremely difficult situations and fighting for justice for them is the most rewarding part of my job,” explains Mr. DuPree.
“At the Office of the State Attorney in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, I worked with the corruption unit, which handled white-collar crimes and public official misconduct.” Mr. DuPree points out, “Asbestos litigation is actually not all that different.”
“Our clients are honest people who were just trying to earn a living for themselves and their families.” Mr. DuPree continues, “The corporations that made and sold toxic asbestos-containing products are some of the largest in the U.S. and in the world. They knew asbestos was dangerous and did not warn people. They betrayed the public’s trust in the worst ways possible, profiting off the backs of hardworking men and women.”
He emphasizes, “I’m honored to be part of Weitz & Luxenberg’s efforts to stand up to the large, powerful, seemingly untouchable companies — whose actions have so egregiously and grievously changed countless lives forever.”
Mr. DuPree has assisted on cases resulting in multimillion dollar verdicts on behalf of injured clients.
“Whether that final achievement is through a settlement or a jury verdict, there is an incredible amount of work and preparation involved in these kind of trial cases,” he explains. “There’s a huge sense of accomplishment knowing we’ve fought for and achieved the best possible outcome for our clients and their families.”
Before Mr. DuPree’s associate attorney role with W&L, he served as a head bankruptcy law clerk for consecutive years with a law corporation based out of Irvine, California. During his tenure, he simultaneously managed multiple deadline-oriented client portfolios for high profile cases.
At the start of Mr. DuPree’s law career, he gained experience as a legal intern for the Office of the State Attorney in Fort Lauderdale. His responsibilities included preparing motions, and evaluating and researching extensive case documents related to investigations of white-collar crimes and official misconduct.
He was responsible for attending depositions and court proceedings to ensure well-prepared case status summaries. This experience ensured a thorough review of police reports, video evidence, and other related discoveries, to gain valuable insight on how trial cases are developed and proceeded.
Mr. DuPree is licensed to practice law in California.
Born in Dallas, Texas and raised in South Florida, Mr. DuPree enjoys weekends spent around the dinner table or fire pit laughing with family and friends. He also loves sports, traveling, and exploring national parks with his fiancée.
