PARTNER - FOUNDING MEMBER
Bret W. Rawson is a founding member of Nelson Jones. He is a seasoned litigator with graduate-level training and experience in crisis communications. He specializes in the representation of peace officers and is a former reserve officer for a local Utah police department where he worked in patrol and in the detectives' division. His litigation experience involves white collar criminal defense, complex civil litigation, and both administrative and plaintiff’s work on behalf of law enforcement officers and their families.
Bret specializes in the legal representation of Police Officers, and select organizational representation. That representation primarily involves appearances before Administrative Tribunals, District Courts, the Utah Court of Appeals, as well as Utah’s Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) for FOP members, but also general counsel services for the Utah FOP, among others.
As a POST graduate and a Reserve Officer in a Utah city, Bret was introduced to the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) by his peers and instructors. This introduction was the inception of his pursuit towards making the lives of law enforcement officers better, both on the job and after retirement or separation is forthcoming.
