Meet Brady's Legal Lineup
Using our courts to fight America’s gun violence epidemic requires a deep knowledge of the issue, the ability to map a path through unparalleled protections brokered solely for the gun industry, and most of all, an unfailing passion for justice. Meet the Brady Legal team.
Chief Legal Officer
Douglas N. Letter is the Chief Legal Officer at Brady, leading the organization's legal efforts. In this position, he builds upon his decades of litigation experience, most recently serving as the General Counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives under Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Senior Counsel, Trial & Appellate Litigation
As a former public defender, civil practice attorney, and Obama appointee to the DOL, Erin Davis has more than a decade of experience as a trial attorney representing those injured. She uses her vast litigation experience to help victims of gun violence find justice against the gun industry for the devastation they cause their families and others.
Senior Counsel and Director of Racial Justice
With experience in litigation, human capital consulting, and diversity and inclusion, Kelly amplifies Brady’s legal expertise by cultivating an effective pro bono attorney network, promoting Brady’s perspective in gun violence related cases, and addressing the gun industry’s disproportionate impact on communities of color.
Counsel, Trial & Appellate Litigation
After graduating from Harvard College in 2011 and Harvard Law School in 2014, Robert worked in private law in New York City before returning to help Brady (he was a legal intern the summer of 2012!) by fighting and winning crucial legal battles that will curtail this nation’s gun violence epidemic.
Senior Litigation Counsel
With over two decades of complex litigation and trial experience, Philip Bangle has brought down a multi-state opioids conglomerate, developed a new form of public nuisance litigation, and served as the lead trial attorney on over a dozen trials. As Senior Litigation Counsel at Brady, Philip litigates gun industry lawsuits on behalf of gun violence victims, municipalities, and communities that have been harmed by irresponsible gun industry practices.
Shira Lauren Feldman
With over a decade of civil litigation experience, Shira Lauren Feldman leads Brady’s Second Amendment litigation and amicus work, and she represents victims of gun violence against the gun industry. Before joining Brady, Shira represented genocide victims and other persecuted groups as a litigation partner at a law firm.
