After attending Sewanee on an academic scholarship and completing his legal studies at The University of Texas, Bret return to Chattanooga in 2001 to practice law at Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, P.C., where he worked on litigation ranging from property disputes to Trade Secret Misappropriation claims. Due to his courtroom experience, Bret was hired in November 2007 to serve the United States as a federal prosecutor handling crimes – drug importation and immigration cases – arising along the international border between Arizona and Mexico. Bret represented the United States in hundreds of immigration cases and numerous drug importation actions. During a criminal jury trial, Bret was noticed by General Counsel for Life Care Centers of America, Inc., a national skilled nursing and assisted living company with facilities in twenty-eight states. He was hired as a supervisor in Life Care’s legal department, overseeing regulatory issues, contract matters as well as professional and general liability matters. Bret attended mediations and arbitrations on behalf of the company, and he analyzed case strategies presented to the company by the myriad of outside law firms hired to represent Life Care nationwide.
Bret was exemplary in my defense. He knew every step of the legal process, provided all options, kept me in the loop, and was, not only professional, but personable. He kept me hopeful of a good outcome and maintained realistic expectations that could only come from years of experience. Bret ensured that I understood every step in the legal process and what I could expect regarding the particulars of my case. What I appreciated the most was I was always aware of what the next move would be and what I could expect whether that move was successful or not. In essence, I could not have hired a more knowledgeable, professional, and caring attorney. Bret took a genuine interest in my future and went above and beyond in my defense.
These attorneys are phenomenal!! I give them the highest praise and recommendation! Thank you Houston & Alexander! You gentlemen rock!!
