Upon passing the Texas bar exam on his 25th birthday in May 2004, Brandt was admitted to the State Bar of Texas. He is licensed to practice in all Texas state courts and the United States District Courts for the Northern and Eastern Districts of Texas.
After his admission to the bar, Brandt was hired by the Gregg County District Attorney’s Office and moved to Longview, Texas. He began his career as a misdemeanor prosecutor in the Gregg County Court at Law, and was quickly promoted to a position as a felony prosecutor in the 124th District Court.
