As a former law clerk of both a trial judge and an appellate judge, Brennan spent countless hours in the courtroom, which have given him a unique understanding of both trial practice and the appellate process.  Brennan now utilizes this knowledge in his work as an attorney at Langdon and Emison, where he practices law in a variety of areas such as product liability, premises liability, and dram shop liability.

Brennan has received recognition for being a Top 10 Under 40 Attorney for Missouri by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys (2017), a Top 100 Civil Plaintiff Trial Lawyers for Missouri by the National Trial Lawyers (2017, 2019, 2020), Premier Lawyers of America (2019), and a Rising Star by Missouri/Kansas Super Lawyers (2015-2018).  He is an active member of various legal organizations and including the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys and the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association.  He also serves on the Law Alumni Board for his alma mater, the University of Missouri – Kansas City.  Brennan periodically performs continuing legal education presentations on topics such as social media discovery, use of technology in the courtroom, the use of experts, and legal ethics.
