Graves Garrett bolsters bench with former Kansas Assistant AG Brothers

Graves Garrett LLC is pleased to announce the addition of Paul Brothers as an associate attorney.

Brothers represents clients in high-stakes investigations, white collar criminal defense and complex civil litigation matters, bringing significant prosecutorial experience to his national practice. His extensive and varied litigation experience includes first-chairing jury trials on behalf of the Kansas Attorney General’s Office in a variety of cases.

Prior to entering private practice, Brothers spent nearly five years as an Assistant Attorney General in the Kansas Attorney General’s Office. He has experience handling all stages of litigation, from preliminary hearings, motions hearings, plea hearings, and sentencings. He has led notable prosecutions, conducting all phases of jury trials from jury selection to verdict, including financial cases with losses up to nearly $1 million, insurance fraud involving both consumers and agents, and a variety of high-profile violent crimes.

“As a former appellate clerk and state prosecutor, Paul’s background gives him a unique understanding of investigative and prosecution priorities, helping him effectively advise clients facing civil and criminal investigations,” said Nathan Garrett, partner at Graves Garrett. “Graves Garrett continues to develop a bench of experienced attorneys with government backgrounds, allowing us to advise clients on responding to government investigations and help clients minimize risks before the government is involved. Paul reinforces our commitment to this approach as Graves Garrett maintains a reputation as a firm capable of handling the most complex cases anywhere in the country.”

Prior to his service at the Kansas Attorney General’s Office, Brothers clerked for Kansas Court of Appeals Chief Judge Thomas E. Malone. While in law school, he served as an appellate intern with the Johnson County (Kansas) District Attorney’s Office and a judicial clerk for the Douglas County (Kansas) District Court.

A native of Clarinda, Iowa, Brothers graduated with honors from the University of Kansas School of Law, where he was inducted into the Order of the Coif and served on the Kansas Law Review. Before law school, he earned his undergraduate degree in political science with a minor in criminal justice from Northwest Missouri State University.
