Upon graduating law school and passing the Florida Bar Exam on the first attempt, Brent began his legal career as an Assistant Public Defender for the 13th Judicial Circuit in Hillsborough County.  Serving 5 years as a public defender, Brent gained extensive trial practice and oversaw a wide array of cases from simple misdemeanor criminal charges to first-degree murder trials.
