Brown, Goldstein & Levy partner Kobie Flowers has been named to Lawdragon’s 500 Leading Litigators in America 2024 guide in the “White Collar,” “Criminal Defense,” and “Investigations” categories. This marks the second consecutive year Kobie has been selected to this prestigious list.
The Lawdragon selection process is incredibly competitive and requires selected attorneys and firms to be leaders in the field who have high touch, impact, and long-standing relationships with their community.
Kobie is one of the nation’s preeminent trial lawyers, with over twenty years of courtroom experience. He has litigated cases at both the federal and state levels throughout the United States and internationally in the military commissions in Guantanamo Bay. Kobie’s unique insight into federal trial practice comes from a career spent building cases for the government as a federal civil rights prosecutor and in fighting the government’s efforts as an assistant federal public defender. Kobie’s lifelong mission to end mass incarceration and police brutality keeps him focused on representing the wrongly convicted and the wrongly accused.
Given the decades-long decrease in trials, Kobie keeps his trial skills sharp by teaching other trial lawyers across the country at well-regarded trial schools, such as the National Criminal Defense College (“NCDC”). In June 2023, Kobie was rated 4.9/5 for his cross-examination demonstration by other esteemed trial lawyers at NCDC’s Trial Practice Institute (“TPI”). That rating was one of the highest ratings for the entire NCDC faculty, which is composed of some of the best trial lawyers in the country. He also received all 5s for his teaching of trial skills at TPI—NCDC’s two-week, flagship program.
In addition to Lawdragon, Kobie has consistently been recognized as a top lawyer by publications like Best Lawyers, Super Lawyers, and Washingtonian, as well as by leading organizations like the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
