brownell.gifThe Washington Post's Reliable Source column has a short piece about Holland & Knight partner Thomas Brownell, who apparently got a little too caught up in a family feud over a property in Virginia wine country. Brownell doesn't look like much of a fighter in his firm mug shot, but allegedly, he throws a mean punch:

In criminal charges and a new lawsuit, the [Oasis Winery] founder's son alleges his mom's attorney slugged him. Tareq Salahi claims his mother, Corinne Salahi — with whom he is fighting for control of the estate — wrongly moved some chairs from his house to the winery; when he moved them back, he claims, her lawyer, Thomas Brownell, punched him in the shoulder and threw him into a door. "Tareq is a big man; it takes a lot of force to do that," said the younger Salahi's attorney, Stephanie Ryan, who last week filed suit in Fairfax County against Brownell and his firm, Holland & Knight.
