Brian Knauth joined LoTempio Law Group after running the personal injury department for a prominent Buffalo law firm. For the last 18 years, Knauth has obtained millions in compensation for who suffered injuries in construction accidents, car accidents, slip and falls, from defective products, unsafe conditions on property, and as a result of acts of medical malpractice. Other than New York, he has handled cases for clients injured in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Ohio, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, California, and Canada.

Knauth has argued cases at the Appellate Division for the Fourth Department in New York State. Worth mentioning, he successfully challenged the State Dental Association’s practices for disputes involving patients, won a case involving a woman who ingested glass from a dessert at a dinner party, and recently argued against the State of New York where judgement was granted to his client attacked by a rabid fox in a state park.

Prior to changing his practice to representing injured victims, Knauth defended large corporations, insurance companies, and self-insured product manufacturers. He brings this knowledge and experience representing the defense side to his work now for clients injured through the fault of others.

Knauth graduated from Wake Forest University with a degree in education. After teaching elementary school in Atlanta, he and his wife returned to Buffalo. He attended State University of New York at Buffalo Law School. Knauth was a member of Law Review, serving as Note and Comment editor, and graduated with honors.
