Brett Sullivan

About Me

I enjoy working with clients to provide a clear road map to their success, whether in business, real estate transactions or the development of an effective estate plan. Working as an in-house lawyer for small businesses has provided me with direct and first-hand knowledge of the work and drive necessary to make a small business succeed and the challenges that small business owners experience, as well as the issues that small business owners face with regard to succession planning for the transition of ownership. I approach client representation with the same drive.

I enjoy an active family life with my wife and two children. I always appreciate opportunites to pursue sailing, flyfishing and snow skiing.

Thank you for visiting my profile and please contact me with your legal needs.

  • Spencer A'Lee Wildig Stromberg

    Brett is an excellent attorney. His approach is always thoughtful, trying to achieve the client's goals in the most cost-effective way for the client. Brett is also always conscious of his ethical obligations to his clients and the bar. Brett is considerate of his clients' emotional investments in their legal matters, but balances that consideration with advice regarding the realistic potential for various approaches to achieve the clients' goals. I have known Brett for 5+ years, and worked on real estate development projects with him for several of those years during the time we were serving as in-house counsel for different real estate development firms. I like Brett so much, both personally and as a lawyer, that I joined him in practice as his law partner in October, 2010.
