Brent was born in Knoxville and graduated from Memphis University School and the University of Memphis. He attended the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law in Memphis and graduated in 2005 with honors. While in law school, he was a Herff Scholar and served on law review.
Brent started practicing in Knoxville after graduation, primarily in the field of civil insurance defense. He worked in-house for Chubb insurance in Connecticut for several years before returning back to Tennessee. He practiced primarily insurance defense in Nashville until 2020.
In 2020, Brent and his wife moved back to their hometown, and he switched sides to serve plaintiffs in this state. He is passionate about representing individuals as they navigate the complex world of insurance coverage. Brent is uniquely qualified to assist plaintiffs in this area, as he worked on the “inside” of the insurance complex for years.
Brent is a member of the Tennessee bar and all federal courts in Tennessee. He is also a member of the Knoxville Bar Association and the Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association. He specializes in representing plaintiffs in vehicle accidents, premises liability cases, and worker’s compensation.
Brent lives with his wife Amanda in an old farmhouse in South Knoxville. They have two sons, Jack and Woodson. They enjoy adopting “brown dogs” from Young Williams Animal Center, hiking in the Smokies, and cheering on the Vols.
