Brett Knight -

Prior to Law School I worked in the Information Technology (IT) management for over 15 years. I acquired many technical certifications along the way and served on some very prestigious boards and committees, I have even helped to write many exams for technical certifications such as A+, Net+, Security+, etc. During this time I served on the executive advisory board for CompTIA and received the contribution to the industry award for my work. This background in business has helped me greatly in being able to understand and represent individuals and businesses in negotiations and legal actions.
I attended and graduated from Belmont University Law School. Upon finishing the Bar exam I was offered a full time position as an Assistant District Attorney, which I had interned at for 2 years prior. In 2015 I was fortunate enough to receive an invitation to join Shawn Fry at the Law Office of Fry and Fry. Our goal was to expand our firm in both geography and in the areas of law we practice.
