Garrett was drawn to workplace investigations because he enjoys hearing people’s stories and trying to solve puzzles. Whether it is through an assessment or an investigation, he tries to make the world simpler and clearer for his clients.

Experience

During law school, Garrett volunteered at wage claim clinics through Legal Aid at Work, and he co-represented a plaintiff during a California Labor Code section 98.2 appeal. He also clerked at a small defense firm.

As a professor’s research assistant, Garrett researched the effectiveness of legislation on auditor bias. He was a senior editor for two Hastings law journals, the Hastings Women’s Law Journal and the Hastings Business Law Journal. In addition, he was on a Moot Court Team and the Internal Vice President of Outlaw, an LGBT student group.

Garrett enjoys analyzing films, writing high fantasy fiction and world-building. He also likes reading about world history and archaeology.
