Brian K. Prince
Brian has spent the majority of his career practicing Workers’ Compensation Law at the Special Funds Conservation Committee, where he completed over 5,500 hearings across western and central New York. During that time, he developed a reputation for being the most prepared attorney in the courtroom. Analytical and insightful, Brian seeks victory through an in-depth understanding of the various regulatory and statutory requirements of the Workers’ Compensation law. For an attorney, Brian has an advanced understanding of orthopedics, and regularly converses with up-and-coming doctors about everything from diagnostic methods to surgical techniques.
Before coming to Workers’ Compensation, he practiced Family Law, where he was mentored by Joan de R. O’Byrne. He bears in mind his mentor’s words that, “you can defeat more things with procedure than with the substantive law.” Brian also worked as a summer law clerk for Federal District Court Judge Charles J. Siragusa, and was on the winning side of his annual summer clerk mock trial.
Born and raised in Rochester, New York, Brian graduated from Clarkson University with a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Engineering and Management in 2008, where he was not only his rugby team’s coach, but also its treasurer and a referee. Thereafter, he graduated from SUNY Buffalo Law School in 2012 with his Juris Doctor. He was admitted to practice law in New York in 2013.
When not at work, Brian is a landlord, and enjoys going to the park with his dog Lilly. He is an avid cook and baker, recreating some of his childhood favorites as well as dabbling with new flavors and techniques.
