Chevon Andre Brooks, Esq. is the founder and managing member of Brooks & Berne, PLLC. Chevon concentrates his practice on the defense of property and casualty matters in both federal and state courts.

Chevon is licensed to practice law in New York and Georgia. Coupled with his desire to provide clients with the best defense at a fair cost, Chevon achieved his personal goal of opening Brooks & Berne, PLLC, a minority certified firm composed of individuals from backgrounds that vary by race, ethnicity, social background, religion, gender and age.
