Brianne is a Founding Partner of her own firm, Falgien Warr & Iyer, P.C., and she specializes in personal injury and workers’ compensation. She and her partners desperately wanted to build a personal injury and workers’ compensation firm that focused more on taking care of its clients and devoting extensive time and attention to each case. She admittedly is a perfectionist and can now properly work up each case, and spend as much time with each of her clients as she desires, in order to achieve even better results for her clients than she was able to do while working for former employers. Her firm is built on integrity, kindness, laughter, happiness, hard and diligent work, and Brianne’s goal is to get her clients back to their Colorado athletic and outdoor activities that Colorado folks crave and count on to survive and thrive. After all, nothing is more important than spending time with family, friends, participating in activities we love, and making memories. These passions are highly affected when you are injured. Your life gets turned upside down. You can count on Brianne and her team to be your compass, as they will guide you back to health and happiness. If you are looking for a firm that cares much less about making money and more about getting its clients back on that mountain, contact Brianne. Brianne and her team will get you back to being a Coloradan again.
Brianne joined her former firm, The Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya in 2009, upon graduating from The University of Denver College of Law and immediately began her litigation career. While associated with The Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya, she tried jury trials, handled hundreds of mediations and depositions, negotiated countless six-figure settlements for clients, and pursued her clients’ rights to receive compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, and the pain and suffering they have endured. Brianne created the personal injury litigation department there and was the head of the Litigation Department for over 8 years. She also spent several years at the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya practicing workers’ compensation.
She was first drawn to law because of her keen interest with the criminal justice system and crime investigation. Growing up, she wanted to be a criminal lawyer. In pursuit of that goal, she graduated from the University of Wyoming with a B.A. in Criminal Justice and a minor in Psychology. However her perspective changed, as she became an adult and found that she was much better suited for civil law. While attending law school, Brianne spent three years as a Law Clerk and Personal Injury Litigation Paralegal for one of Denver’s largest personal injury firms. She fell in love with civil litigation and personal injury law and chose to make it her career.
“Litigation allows me to pursue the claim further to achieve a desired result for my clients. When the insurance company denies liability, or makes an insufficient offer to compensate my clients’ damages, litigation is the vehicle I can use to show I disagree with my opponents’ evaluations and opinions – to take the case further for my clients – to achieve results – to seek justice.”
Brianne loves the creativity involved as an attorney—every case is a different challenge. She is never bored in her career. She loves the sense of accomplishment she feels when she helps clients through a difficult problem, situation, or issue.
“My favorite part is getting to know my clients, and using my awareness of their values, beliefs, and desires to understand what they truly want as their outcome. I love that I have the tools, drive, thoughtfulness, and knowledge to help them reach that outcome.”
In 2012, Brianne was nominated and selected for inclusion in The National Trial Lawyers “Top 40 Under 40” for the state of Colorado, a prestigious invitation and distinguished honor presented by one of the country’s top attorney associations to a group of only 40 attorneys comprised of civil and criminal attorneys in each state. Achieving the Top 40 Under 40 is by special invitation and is extended only to those 40 attorneys from each state who exemplify superior qualifications, trial results, and leadership as a young trial lawyer.
In 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, Brianne was nominated and selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers Colorado Rising Stars list, awarded to less than 2.5% of Colorado lawyers who have distinguished themselves in their legal practice.
In November 2017, Brianne received the Distinguished Lawyer Designation© from the Expert Network which is only conferred upon the Top 3% of Lawyers in the U.S. The Expert Network is the leading invitation only network for professionals who have contributed meaningfully to their field, and can demonstrate a distinct perspective on the future of their profession. The selection is based on a thorough multi-phase research and evaluation process, in order to select professionals who have demonstrated superior influence, leadership, reputation and knowledge. The Expert Network’s review includes, among other factors, scrutiny of education, training, certifications, professional achievements, disciplinary history, and review of organizations and publications including Martindale-Hubbell, Super Lawyers, Avvo and others.
Brianne was born and raised in Laramie, Wyoming. She can maneuver this big city and her big city opponents like a champ; however, she’ll always be a small town girl, with small town values to the core.
When not advocating for her clients, Brianne enjoys hiking and snow shoeing in Colorado’s arduous mountains, camping, exercising, watching the Wyoming Cowboys, Denver Broncos, The UFC (MMA fighting), attending country music concerts, cruising throughout Colorado in her Jeep, spending time with friends and family, meeting new people, and traveling. Her favorite new passion is creating and running her new law firm and connecting with her wonderful clients.
Brianne and her husband, Corey, share their home in Wheat Ridge with their dog Magnus Maximus (“Max”) and two cats (Madden and Peyton). They were married in Cancun in 2007; they loved having a small destination wedding. They are expecting their first child, a son, in October 2017, which they couldn’t be more thrilled about.
