James H. Brown’s commitment to seriously injured persons and their families comes from firsthand experience. At age 7 James H. Brown was diagnosed with a rare hip ailment which resulted in him being bedridden for a year and spending another year in a wheelchair. The Brown family never gave up hope that James would one day walk again, but never dreamt that he would one day go on to play competitive hockey. But tragedy struck again. James had just started a promising hockey career with the Edmonton Oil Kings when his life was forever changed as a result of a head-on collision with an uninsured driver. Brown woke up, unable to move, in a hospital bed with a broken neck. His struggle back to health taught him just how much a devastating injury can affect someone’s life. Brown credits this experience with being the motivational force behind his law firm’s commitment to seriously injured persons and their families.
Have you ever thought about all the events that led up to this moment in your life? Like all the people or things that have shaped who you are? Or why you’re here? Well when people have asked me about my trip to Thailand in 2022, I actually said, if there was ever a reason or a purpose for my life, it was amplified and affirmed in Thailand. I know that is a bold statement to make, but all the people and all the events in my life up to this point, “have” indeed shaped me and positioned me to be where I am today. That is why I say this trip was more than just an adventure, it was life changing.
