Brett is a trial lawyer who joined Webster Vicknair MacLeod in March of 2023. He is a lifelong Texan who grew up in the town of Nacogdoches before attending Texas A&M University where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in Agribusiness and minor in Economics.

After graduating from Texas A&M, Brett attended the University of Houston Law Center where he was involved in various activities including the UHLC Honor Board where he served as Chief Prosecutor, the Houston Business and Tax Law Journal, and the UHLC National Mock Trial Team. As part of the mock trial team, Brett and his three teammates won the first ever Tex-ABOTA Best in Texas Showdown Mock Trial Tournament, and he was also a regional finalist in the National Trial Competition. Brett’s mock trial skills and successes eventually led to his induction into the prestigious Order of the Barristers, a national honorary organization dedicated to advocacy in which only ten students are inducted into each law school chapter every year.

During his summers in law school, Brett worked as a summer associate at both an insurance defense firm and a local plaintiff’s personal injury firm. Additionally, Brett spent five months of his third year of law school clerking for the Honorable Christine Weems of the 281st District Court in Harris County.

Since graduating law school, Brett has continued to assist with the UHLC National Mock Trial Team by judging tournaments and coaching the current team. Brett has also competed twice in the Battle of the Bayou Mock Trial Tournament, a tournament for young lawyers who have graduated law school in the past five years. He is the current champion of that tournament.

Prior to joining WVM, Brett worked at another Houston personal injury firm where he gained valuable experience working on catastrophic personal injury cases much like the cases he handles now at WVM. Brett’s focus currently is on representing clients in complex premises liability cases, product liability cases, construction injury cases, oilfield injury cases, Jones Act cases, and trucking collision cases, among others. No matter the case, Brett is determined to tackle every complicated issue that may arise and fight to get the best result for his clients.

In his free time, Brett enjoys hunting, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

Brett is licensed to practice law in the State of Texas.
