About Brandt Kettwick Defense

Brandt Kettwick Defense is a law firm dedicated to helping people through their legal struggles with compassion, integrity, professionalism, and respect. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile and doing the right thing in everything we do.

Primary Area of Practice

"All Kinds of Criminal Defense"
Brandt Kettwick Defense, a law firm dedicated to “helping those who find themselves on the wrong side of the law.”  We are a firm practicing almost exclusively in the area of criminal defense.

Training Provided to Summer Associates

As a smaller firm (4 attorneys and 10 employees) we do not have a rigid training program.  We use our current law clerks to help train new law clerks.  We have a training manual, a checklist, and always have an “open door” policy where our entire office is here to help.

Pro Bono/Community Involvement

All of our attorneys are involved in various non-profit organizations but in and our of the legal community.  We also regularly volunteer for various events including law days at various courthouses, expungement clinics, stand down for veterans, etc. All three of our attorneys also mentor students through the law school. 

Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

As a private law firm, we can often see how inequities lead to people getting stuck in our criminal justice system.  All of our attorneys are committed to improving the justice system, and diversity is part of that equation.  Diversity is woefully lacking in the legal community and it is especially lacking in private criminal defense. We would like to play a part in improving that.

Summer Associate/Clerkship Description

Our clerks will come to our law firm and have a variety of opportunities.  Some primary tasks will include writing blogs, reviewing evidence/police reports and body cameras and writing reports for attorney review, and lots of problem solving.  You could also have opportunities to communicate with clients, to watch attorneys in court, and to get a taste for criminal defense work. We strive to provide great mentorship to our law clerks.  Our team works closely together to help our clients get through their struggles and our law clerks play an active role in that process.
