Brennon Brady, Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, graduated from Texas Tech University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and graduated from Southern Methodist University, Dedman School of Law with a Juris Doctor in 2004.
While attending SMU law school, Brennon found a passion for criminal defense. Brennon was a member of the outstanding Criminal Justice Clinic. The clinic allowed him to get real trial experience trying DWI and assault cases to juries as a student attorney. While in SMU law school, he also clerked for one of the top criminal defense firms in Dallas.
After graduating from law school in 2004 and passing the bar exam on his first attempt, Brennon was in private practice for a brief time before accepting a position as an assistant public defender.
As a young public defender, Brennon cut his teeth trying some of the most difficult felony and misdemeanor cases to juries. He is not like a lot of defense attorneys who claim to have “handled” felonies or “handled” murder cases. Brennon has tried these types of cases to jury verdicts. He was promoted to First Assistant where he supervised attorneys disposing of roughly 1800 cases per year.
In addition to his extensive pretrial and trial work, Brennon is also a seasoned appellate attorney. He has appealed and argued in-person cases before the 2nd Court of Appeals and Court of Criminal Appeals.
Brennon is not only an attorney he is also an educator. He was invited to become an adjunct professor of criminal law at Midwestern State University. He taught Texas criminal law and procedure to undergraduates, many of which went on to become employed in positions of law enforcement.
Brennon enjoys helping his clients navigate the difficult and confusing legal system in order to achieve the best possible outcomes.
