Brett graduated from Eagle Grove High School in 2004. In 2007, he received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Wartburg College. Brett then earned his law degree in 2010 from the University of Kansas School of Law. Before joining the law firm, Brett practiced for the law firm of Martin Pringle in Wichita, Kansas. Brett is married to Eagle Grove native, Katie Legvold (Cooper), and they have two children. Outside of work, Brett enjoys golfing, traveling, spending time with family and friends, supporting the Iowa State Cyclones, and being an involved, active member of his community. He has served as a volunteer director of various organizations, including the Humboldt Country Club, Humboldt-Dakota City Chamber of Commerce, and Kiddie Cats Child Care and Learning Center. Brett’s practice is a general practice with the majority of his time spent in the areas of estate planning and probate, real estate, business organizations, municipal law, agricultural law, and employment law. As a general practitioner in rural Iowa, Brett understands the importance of being a person whose counsel is sought after and trusted on a variety of matters, and he prides himself on providing candid advice and professional service to his clients. Brett’s approach is simple and straightforward. That is, clients are best served being instructed on what they need to know rather than what they may want to hear, which is founded upon Brett’s great respect and admiration for the importance of the rule of law upon American society.
