Former Fresno State footballer gives generously to Dan Brown Legacy Fund

Brian Panish sees himself as a champion for the underdog, as the guy who will help even the playing field for those in need. The southern California attorney took on that role first in the 1970s playing defense on the Fresno State football team, then later fighting in the courtroom for victims of personal injury and product liability cases, and most recently by helping those in the Fresno area afflicted with brain, spine and nerve damage or disease.

Frank Miramontes of Visalia was living with almost unbearable pain because of degenerative discs in his spine. Bone spurs on the discs added to his pain and he felt his quality of life was suffering when he was unable to work or get around.
