Brandon Gardner founded Brandon Gardner & Associates, PLC with one thought in mind: "Who is most in need of a lawyer?" The answer came to him after much thought - people facing criminal prosecution, children and young adults. He completed his undergraduate degree at California State University, Fullerton and earned his juris doctorate from Michigan State University College of Law. During law school, Brandon clerked for an Ingham County Circuit Court judge, served as an investigator for the Ingham County Probate Court, served on several law student organizational boards, and worked for prominent law firms in mid-Michigan.
Brandon is admitted to practice throughout Michigan, the Federal District and Bankruptcy Courts for the Western and Eastern Districts of Michigan, as well as the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. His professional memberships include the Marijuana Law Section and Children's Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, and the Grand Rapids Bar Association. He is rated AV Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell for legal knowledge and ethical conduct and was selected to the Michigan Rising Stars list in 2017, 2018, and 2019. He has written several articles for the Ingham County Bar Association's "Briefs" and the Grand Rapids Lawyer and filed briefs with the Michigan Supreme Court and the Michigan Court of Appeals. Mr. Gardner has practiced in over 30 Michigan Counties and appeared before over a hundred jurists.
