Brett is a Tampa native who returned home after law school to serve the community he loves. After passing the Bar, Brett immediately began working as a prosecutor at the State Attorney’s Office in Tampa. He prosecuted over 5,000 cases, including DUI’s, domestic violence, drug possession, drug trafficking, gun charges, and RICO cases.  Most importantly, Brett tried over 100 cases to verdict during his time as a prosecutor.

Armed with litigation experience, knowledge of the criminal system, and ambition, Brett opened Metcalf Law in July of 2012.  At Metcalf Law, he primarily practiced DUI defense, criminal defense, and traffic ticket defense. Brett credits the success of Metcalf Law to his focus on excellent client service.  Ultimately, the same philosophy has created the foundation for Hillsborough Defense, formed in 2014.  Also in 2014, The National Trial Lawyers named Brett to the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” and “Top 40 Under 40” lists.  Avvo.com has awarded Brett their highest rating, a 10.0.

Brett lives in Tampa with his beautiful wife, Holli, and their son, Parker.  Brett has a passion for good food, craft beer, and family.  He also dabbles in fantasy football in his free time – not the illegal kind, though.

Brett was elected to the Hillsborough County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division Board of Directors. He is licensed to practice in all Florida state courts.
