Anthony Bretz

I am an experienced and dedicated trial attorney specializing in DWI, DUI, Criminal Defense, and Employment Discrimination cases. I aggressively represent my clients' interests while taking the time to understand the nuances of each case. I firmly believe in our Federal and State Constitutional rights and in protecting those rights. Part of the reason why I so aggressively fight for my clients' rights is to make sure that they don't feel forgotten or ignored and to guarantee that neither they nor anyone has to endure the wrongs of having their Constitutional rights violated.

A St. Louis native, I was raised in North County in Florissant graduating from McCluer North High School where I played football and wrestled. After graduating in 2000, I attended Truman State University in Kirksville, MO where I earned a degree in History with a minor in Philosophy & Religion. Thereafter, I chose to attend law school at Mizzou in Columbia, MO and graduated in 2008 with my J.D.

Upon passing the Missouri Bar Exam in 2008, I jumped directly into the fire and opened a solo practice. It was during the Great Recession where I quickly developed the skills, tenacity and professional relationships necessary to successfully and effectively represent my clients. I learned the value of listening to my clients' interests when defending their Constitutional rights.

In 2010 I joined a medium-sized law firm in St. Louis County where I sharpened my litigation skills. It was there that I ultimately chose to focus my career on helping those who have been treated wrongly at work, as well as helping clients who have been arrested and charged with a DWI, DUI or other charges. I am a dedicated, focused and results-driven attorney who fights for my clients' rights.

Since April 2021, Bretz Legal has been representing its clients in DWI, Criminal and Employment Discrimination cases across the state of Missouri and in Federal Court. Bretz Legal is here to fight for your rights.
