Why Choose Me?

Put a true advocate in your corner.

Detail-Oriented Counsel

At Bretz Legal, LLC, I dedicate my personal time and attention to every client who comes through my door. While other attorneys may take a one-size-fits-all approach to criminal and employment law, I produce tailored strategies focused on your future. This involves conducting in-depth investigations of the circumstances surrounding your arrest or the instance of discrimination.

Personable Approach

I understand how difficult it can be to ask for help. Whether you've been discriminated against at work based on an aspect of who you are, or you've been charged with a DUI, drug crime, federal offense, or another violation, you may be feeling overwhelmed and unsure of where to turn. I treat my clients with respect and compassion, so you can trust that I truly have your best interests in mind.
