Brandt’s Jewish family immigrated to Colorado in the late 1800’s. Like immigrants today, they worked hard to get ahead – in their case, in the gold mines near Cotopaxi, CO. Just like many immigrant workers today, Brandt’s ancestors were the victims of wage theft: the mine owner for whom they worked refused to pay them for many months of their work. Like Brandt’s clients today, Brandt’s ancestors had to go to court to be paid the wages they were due.
Brandt is licensed to practice law in Colorado and New Mexico. After practicing with a union-side labor law firm in New Mexico from 2006-2009, Brandt opened the Milstein Law Office to represent workers who are owed wages, bringing class and collective actions on their behalf. Brandt regularly conducts CLE (Continuing Legal Education) programs for other attorneys on wage and hour litigation, and speaks Spanish fluently. Brandt is recognized as a SuperLawyer, and was awarded Towards Justice’s 2016 Wage Justice Champion Award for his longstanding commitment to empowering immigrant workers. A Denver native, Brandt now lives on a farm north of Boulder with his wife Ryan and their two small travieso kids.
