As a first-generation college student from a small town in southeast Texas, Garrett Brawley knows the importance of hard work and perseverance.

Equally as important, Garrett knows how everyday people relay ideas and communicate. Garrett brings this experience and an intense attention to detail to every stage of litigation, helping his clients cut through complex legal issues and develop sound, persuasive arguments that maximize the success at trial.

Prior to joining Beck Redden, Garrett clerked for the Honorable Alfred H. Bennett of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas. During his clerkship, Garrett assisted Judge Bennett in presiding over fourteen federal jury trials and gained valuable insight into federal motions practice and procedure. Garrett graduated from The University of Texas School of Law where he served as an Associate Editor of the Texas Law Review and participated in the criminal defense clinic.
