Brian Cummings has 20+ years of litigation experience successfully handling and trying scores of medical malpractice, personal injury, and car accident cases. His most recent trial victory was over $1,000,000.00 in December 2018 in a medical malpractice case. He has obtained more than $24,000,000.00 for his clients in just the past few years, which earned him a lifetime membership in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. He has vast experience analyzing claims and facts in order to gain judgments and settlements for his clients. He enjoys helping clients navigate the legal system, including helping them manage the stress they experience when other people's actions bring them into the litigation arena. Brian enables his clients to focus on their work and daily lives by entrusting the litigation process to him. He only takes on select cases so that he can personally handle every aspect of that client's important case.

Brian is Board-certified as a Medical Malpractice attorney by the American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys. He is 1 of only 15 attorneys in Tennessee who have earned this certification. Board-certification is awarded only after having your trial experience vetted and passing an extensive written exam. He has been selected by SuperLawyers for consecutive years (2015-2019) as a plaintiffs' attorney handling personal injury cases.

Brian has the highest rating available for attorneys from Martindale-Hubbell, having been designated as AV Preeminent. The AV rating means a lawyer's peers (attorneys/judges) rank him at the highest level of professional excellence. He also has the highest rating possible with Avvo - a 10.0 / Superb rating.

Brian is a Senior Fellow of The Litigation Counsel of America (LCA). The LCA is a trial lawyer honorary society composed of less than one half of 1% of American lawyers. Membership is by invitation only. Selection is based on effectiveness and accomplishment in litigation, as well as ethical reputation. Brian is one of less than 10 attorneys in Nashville who are Senior Fellows. Brian was named a Fellow of the Nashville Bar Foundation. Fellows are selected by vote of other experienced lawyers, with each new class being limited to 2% of the Bar.

Brian has multiple jury trial successes, and he has obtained strong settlements for his clients. He makes a point to develop themes and exhibits to share with juries to complement the concise, jury-friendly, and story-telling style he uses at trial. Brian speaks frequently at litigation seminars by invitation, including at the 2018 TN Medical Malpractice Conference, with the most common request being that he share with other lawyers his insight and experience on how to prepare and present the best arguments and stories to persuade juries.

Brian is licensed to practice law in Tennessee, Hawaii, California, Georgia, and Florida, and he is admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court.
