Practice areas

I am an experienced and dedicated trial attorney specializing in Criminal & DWI/DUI cases, as well as Employment Discrimination cases.  A St. Louis native, I went to McCluer North High School in Florissant where I played football and wrestled.  After graduating in 2000, I attended Truman State University in Kirksville, MO where I majored in History with a minor in Philosophy & Religion.

After receiving my undergraduate degree, I attended law school at Mizzou in Columbia, MO and graduated in 2008.

After passing the Missouri Bar Exam in 2008, I opened a solo practice where I developed the skills, tenacity and professional relationships necessary to successfully and effectively represent my clients.  In 2010, I joined the Kodner Watkins law firm where I sharpened my litigation skills and ultimately chose to focus my career on helping those who have been arrested and charged with a DWI, DUI or other charges,as well as helping clients who have been treated wrongly at work.  While at Kodner Watkins I have represented criminal clients in federal jury trials, and clients charged with State and Municipal DWI and other criminal charges. I am a dedicated, focused and results-driven attorney who fights for my clients’ rights, representing clients in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Jefferson County and Franklin County.

Since April 2021, Bretz Legal has been representing clients in Criminal and DWI cases in State and Federal courts in Missouri, as well as representing clients in Employment Discrimination matters.

Great Communication and Service
I hired Mr. Bretz after an auto accident that occurred when I was pregnant. During the process I gave birth and had additional medical issues. He worked with me long term with my medical bills and coordinating what was accident related and what was pregnancy related. He kept me in the loop on progress throughout the whole case which took over a year to sort out and resolve. I am very happy with the conclusion and the level of service we received.

Helped me a lot
I've used Mr. Bretz on two occasions now. I own a rental property and have had less than stellar residents at times. Anthony gave me blunt, honest and realistic advice on what I was looking at and how to proceed both going forward and how to get back rent from the current renters. In the end, things worked out extremely well for me based on his advice and I was able to collect way more than I would have expected. Cherry on top is that it was very affordable

Top Notch!
When having an issue of discrimination with my previous employer, I chose to seek legal advice on the matter. When Tony reviewed my case, he was open, honest, and explained the process in detail on what would happen in the event I would file charges. With the evidence I had, and Tony to guide me every step of the way through representation, I would recommend and hope all others looking for similar help would choose Tony as well to assist them with their case. I feel successful and now have the closure I need to move forward with a new employer and a fresh start.

Speeding ticket
Tony was able to reduce a speeding ticket to a non-moving violation. Very quick and professional. I have also used this firm for a few other legal issues and they’ve been nothing but the best.

Good all around service!
Anthony helped me recoup funds wrongfully withheld through his knowledge of the states commerce laws. He was also able to navigate the court system with expediency. Thanks Anthony!

Anthony Bretz
Anthony has consulted and represented my interests on multiple cases for me over the last few years. Any time I have a need to reach out to an attorney I am stressed (who isnt?), because there is a legal problem I need help with. Yet a quick call to Anthony always seems to make that stress go away because he walks me through his thoughts and my options. His advice is always well thought out and calm, which in turn gives me confidence. Especially because he seems to genuinely care about my issues.

Very Prompt and Professional
I have used Mr. Bretz's legal services several times. Most of the work for which I have hired him has involved getting the proper paperwork completed to set up small businesses, or contract review. These are not a part of Mr. Bretz's listed specialties. However, that did not stop him from providing me excellent service that was executed both promptly, professionally, and accurately. I would not hesitate to again hire Mr. Bretz for these legal services, or any others which he deemed himself properly suited to perform.
