Brent has been practicing law since 1980. 

Brent is a lifelong resident of Saint Joseph and has been practicing law since 1980.  After a career as a trial lawyer with a local law firm, Brent opened his own practice in 2000 with an emphasis on counseling based estate planning, real estate and Social Security disability.  As his clientele, parents and in-laws grew older, he learned firsthand the challenges the elderly and their families face regarding finances, long-term care and the complicated and treacherous maze of nursing home Medicaid law and regulations.  Since then he has committed himself to preventing the financial devastation that too often occurs to the elderly without proper guidance and expert legal advice.

Brent is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Wealth Counsel, Elder Counsel and the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives.  These organizations provide education, training, and a national network of expertise for member attorneys to help senior citizens and people with special needs.
