Law Offices of Thomas M. Diachenko

Heidi E. Brown

Heidi E. Brown, Esq.

Heidi E. Brown, Esq. has over 25 years of litigation experience ranging from representation of San Diego’s largest credit unions to protecting the interests of citizen groups challenging environmental impacts of development projects. She has handled lawsuits from inception through appeals and ultimate settlement or judgment. While the range of her areas of practice has been broad, the common thread in her work has always been employment law matters. Throughout her career, her greatest sense of accomplishment has come from helping clients negotiate the frequently difficult aspects of lawsuits with personal attention to their unique concerns and needs.

Ms. Brown graduated from the University of San Diego School of Law where she was a member of the Law Review and the Appellate Moot Court Board.  She began her legal career at Hughes and Campbell  focusing primarily on defense of personal injury and construction defect claims before helping establish The Law Offices of Kevin K. Johnson, where she worked for over twenty years, litigating employment matters, class actions, bankruptcy and CEQA.

Originally from Iowa, Ms. Brown received a BA in Journalism from Iowa State University before moving to San Diego and settling in Scripps Ranch.  Balancing parenthood with her professional career, Ms. Brown took extended leaves of absence from work, during which she assumed leadership positions in local schools’ parent groups and youth sports leagues as well as Girl Scouts and student art programs.
