Brett Colvin Brett is a lifelong entrepreneur and leader. Before becoming a lawyer, Brett owned a successful painting business and lead the University of Alberta varsity soccer team to countless victories. After law school, he worked at Canada’s largest law firm as a corporate lawyer for 4 years. He saw first hand every day that most people need legal help but can’t afford it. They don’t qualify for Legal Aid, but the typical firm rates are simply out of reach. Determined to find a way to fix the crisis, Brett left the world of corporate law and started building a team with the shared goal of changing the world. Today, he's the CEO and Co-founder of Goodlawyer, an online marketplace dedicated to helping people find the legal help they need.
