As a Presidential Scholarship recipient, Bret received his law degree from the Seattle University School of Law in 2012. In addition to his law degree, Bret holds a bachelor’s degree in evolutionary psychology and master’s degree in psychology.
In pursuit of enriching his academic experiences, Bret spent extended time studying and working abroad. During his undergraduate education, Bret studied in Costa Rica, Burkina Faso, Mali, and Thailand. During law school, Bret participated in a joint program with Universidad Rafael Landivar, located in Guatemala City, Guatemala, where he completed courses on Latin American legal history and the Central American Free Trade Agreement, taught entirely in Spanish.
After law school, Bret held an associate position at a small Seattle immigration firm where he benefitted from working with a diverse client base and gaining experience in the courtroom. In 2014, Bret was honored to be admitted into the Seattle University School of Law “Incubator Program” for its inaugural year. Empowered by this amazing program’s support, Bret struck out on his own so he could focus on the direction he wanted his legal career to take. As he had successfully started and run a business prior to attending law school, he was excited to start his own firm in this thriving city.
Outside of work, Bret enjoys spending time with his wife, twin daughters, and trusty dog Leo. His favorite activities include cycling, scuba diving, snowboarding, rafting, and just generally getting into the wild outdoors however he can.
