Bret R. Smith

"From the cockpit to the courtroom"

Bret R. Smith has a background and experience unique to the practice of law.

A 1991 graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, Bret served the United States as an Air Force officer and jet pilot before attending law school at the University of Alabama.

Although it would appear that the cockpit of a Boeing B-1 Lancer and a courtroom do not have much in common, Bret has found that professionalism, preparation, and attention to detail have been vital to success in both places.
