A Michigan native, Brett earned his BA from the University of Michigan, and his JD, cum laude, from Michigan State University College of Law.  In law school, Brett founded the Media, Entertainment, Technology & Arts Law Society, competed in a national copyright moot court competition, and wrote on many technology related legal issues. Throughout law school, Brett gained practical legal experience in a variety of settings: as an intern for a Federal judge, with the public defender in Ann Arbor, MI, and as a law clerk helping people in their property, estate planning, and business affairs.  After graduation from law school, the tall buildings, music scene, and great restaurants lured him to Chicago.
