Neil Kitrosser started with the firm of Brookman, Rosenberg, Brown & Sandler in 1987, after serving 13 years as an assistant district attorney with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office. As an
assistant D.A. from 1974 to 1987, Neil tried hundreds of cases in the major felony and homicide units and spent considerable time with the Law Division, writing briefs and arguing cases before the Pennsylvania
Appellate Courts. Neil attended undergraduate school at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, 1964-1968, where he played (but more often sat on the bench) for the varsity basketball team. As a
physics major, he graduated magna cum laude
and was selected to Phi Beta Kappa. In 1969, Neil entered the United States Coast Guard Officer Candidate School in
Yorktown, Virginia and served as a Coast Guard officer from 1969 to 1971. For much of his service, Neil was assigned to the Marine Inspection Office in Philadelphia, where he achieved the rank of Lieutenant
Junior Grade prior to his discharge (Honorable) in 1971. Neil’s friends and colleagues often disparage his Vietnam period “military experience,” in Philadelphia, but Neil likes to point out that during his
watch, from 1969 to 1971, there was not a single successful invasion of the east coast of the United States! Neil obtained his J.D.
degree (cum laude
) from Temple University School
in 1974. As an associate with Brookman, Rosenberg, Brown & Sandler, Neil has successfully tried numerous asbestos cases, with several verdicts exceeding a million dollars
(ranging from $1.2 to $4.3 million). In addition, Neil has handled a variety of other legal matters, including claims of medical malpractice, auto related injuries and defective latex products. Outside of
the office, Neil has performed as a magician and clown for Ronald McDonald House, hospitals, schools, community centers, religious organizations and at family events (but never in court).
