He graduated from the University of Utah College of Law in 1985 and has practiced law in Salt Lake City for over 30 years. Most of that time he has represented individuals suing health, life, and disability insurers and self funded employee benefit plans. This work usually involves the Employee Retirement Income Security Act ("ERISA"). He has lectured across the country and written frequently on the topic. Mr. King was invited to testify before the Department of Labor in Washington, D.C. regarding proposed changes to ERISA's claims and appeals procedures and also testified before the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Treasury about changes to the federal Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act. He has been lead counsel in hundreds of trial and appellate cases across the country involving health, life, and disability claims. Mr. King has also been lead counsel for plaintiffs in over a dozen class actions, mostly involving ERISA cases. He has represented clients before the U.S. Supreme Court and in many Federal Circuit and District courts. He is a past president of the Utah Association for Justice (formerly the Utah Trial Lawyers Association). He also serves on the Board of Directors for the Rape Recovery Center and on the Board for the ACLU of Utah. In 2008 Brian was elected to the Utah State House of Representatives as the Democratic representative for District 28 in Salt Lake City. He is a member of the House Judiciary and Business and Labor Standing committees. He also serves on the Executive Offices and Criminal Justice Appropriations Subcommittee, the Constitutional Defense Council, and the Federalism Commission. He was elected by his Democratic House colleagues as the Leader of the House Democratic caucus in 2014 and continues to serve in that position.
