Garett joined the firm in 2012 and focuses on civil litigation, including personal injury, worker's compensation, business, and employment litigation as well as municipal law matters. Prior to joining the firm, he graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where he majored in English, minored in Environmental Science, and played varsity football. He obtained his law degree in 2010 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and he interned for the Wisconsin Court of Appeals and worked as a law clerk for a personal injury law firm. He also worked in Wausau as an attorney defending worker's compensation claims.

Garett enjoys spending time with his wife, young son, family, and friends. He enjoys traveling, reading, playing sports, hiking, biking, and hunting. His favorite author is William Faulkner. Given that Garett grew up in the small Central Wisconsin town of Milladore, he is a true Wisconsinite that roots for the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Wisconsin Badgers.
