Garrett earned his bachelor's degree in 1999 from New Mexico State University where he doubled-majored in economics and criminal justice. In 2002, Garrett was awarded a Juris Doctorate degree from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska.
As many young attorneys do in their early years, Garrett practiced law on several fronts, including real estate, criminal defense, and civil litigation. Since joining The Hughes Law Firm in 2007, Garrett has focused his efforts in the firm's area of greatest emphasis – estate planning.
Garrett loves meeting with families anxiously searching for inheritance-planning solutions for their often complicated situations. Not only do Garrett's patience, listening skills, and creative problem-solving abilities make him the firm's most admired attorney, his public speaking talents make him an indispensable part of the firm's educational workshop and webinar endeavors.
Garrett's love for his clients and estate planning is surpassed only by his love for the outdoors. An avid hunter, camper, and fisherman, we know if we can't find him with clients, we can usually find him driving through the high country in his tricked-out mountain-climbing Jeep.
