Cease being intimidated by the argument that a right action is impossible because it does not yield maximum profits, or that a wrong action is to be condoned because it pays.
— Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac


Brian J. Felten is an associate attorney whose practice focuses on personal injury litigation. Brian joined the legal profession after completing a ten-plus-year career in environmental management and consulting where he focused on environmental permitting regarding clean water laws and regulations.

While guiding clients through the complicated world of environmental regulation, Brian developed a superior ability to efficiently deconstruct complex matters, address essential issues, develop comprehensive strategies, and achieve client goals. Brian’s unique set of problem solving skills and client care abilities, coupled with his passion for protecting the public, align perfectly with Coast Law Group’s dedicated practice of representing victims of personal injury and protecting the environment.

Brian received a Bachelor of Science in Natural Resource Management from Rutgers University. After developing and honing his professional skills as a consultant, Brian attended California Western School of Law where he received his Juris Doctorate, cum laude. While in law school, he completed three public-interest environmental law internships where he worked to protect the public by holding polluters accountable through civil environmental citizen suits, and monitoring regulatory agency actions, ensuring their actions were in accord with the law.

As an attorney at Coast Law Group, Brian continues his efforts to protect the public by representing clients in personal injury cases, as well as supporting local environmental non-profit organizations’ advocacy efforts.
