Attorney Bridget Barrett received her law degree from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law where she graduated with honors. Prior to law school, Ms. Barrett received her Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Wayne State University. During her time in law school, Ms. Barrett worked at the Veterans Law Clinic where she represented veterans in disability cases. It was this hands-on experience and training, before becoming a lawyer, that solidified her passion to helping veterans in need.
Bridget started at Disability Law Group as a law clerk, during her time in law school, where she worked in the firm’s VA Disability practice. She quickly demonstrated her knowledge and commitment to helping veterans with their disability case. Ms. Barrett understands that diving deep into the veterans’ service treatment records, while performing extensive legal and medical research, is required to help prove service-connection and disability for her clients, and she truly enjoys the journey each case takes her on.
In fact, Bridget has dedicated her entire practice to helping veterans receive the service connected and non-service connected disability pension benefits that they deserve. Her education in Criminal Justice, and extensive experience in veterans disability benefits, has made her a strong advocate known for her empathy, vigor and attention to detail. Ms. Barrett prides herself on taking the time to listen to her client’s story to understand and create the best legal strategy in each case.
Bridget is a member of the State Bar of Michigan and the National Organization of Veterans’ Advocates. She is also accredited to practice before the Department of Veterans Affairs, and helps her veteran clients throughout the appeals process. A native of Michigan, she loves spending time with her family, including her tripawd dog, Harriet, exploring in and around Detroit. In her free time, Bridget enjoys watching playoff hockey, cooking, and supporting animal rescues.
