Brandon was born in Indiana. He grew up in South Florida. After high school, he moved to Orlando to attend the University of Central Florida. While there, Brandon was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon and Phi Alpha Delta. He also competed on the Mock Trial Team at UCF. With the team, Brandon was able to compete in multiple Mock Trial competitions across the country, learn essential trial practice skills, and earn a Best Attorney award at the American Mock Trial Association’s Southeast Regional Mock Trial Competition. After UCF, he moved to Chicago to attend Loyola University Chicago’s School of law, where he also competed on the Mock Trial Team, continued to develop and refine his trial practice skills, and earned a Certificate in Advocacy.
After graduating law school, Brandon joined the Orange County State Attorney’s Office as an Assistant State Attorney. At the State Attorney’s Office, he prosecuted criminal defendants, enforced criminal laws, and advocated on behalf of the State of Florida, as well as the victims of criminal misconduct. While there, Brandon also independently prosecuted a high-volume felony caseload from intake to disposition, prepared numerous motions, delivered arguments in various types of circuit court hearings, conducted the depositions of both state and defense witnesses, and performed all phases of the trial process from jury selection to closing arguments. In his first two years as a prosecutor, Brandon tried over 30 jury and non-jury trials to verdict as lead council. Before leaving the office, he was promoted through five levels of prosecution, including county court misdemeanor, entry level circuit court felony, the juvenile bureau, the DUI unit, and the Drug Unit.
Brandon is now using the information and things he learned as a prosecutor, to build strong cases for his criminal defense clients at The Fighter Law Firm.
