She's a native of New York City and a graduate of Barnard College of Columbia University and the Georgetown University Law Center.

Ultimately, officials in Washington, DC, selected her to head that elite unit in Brooklyn, New York.
Before switching to defense litigation, Ms. Brevetti was a prosecutor. She won the convictions of the bosses of New York organized crime families, the leadership of powerful unions, Wall Street bankers and financiers, business owners, and politicians. New York media recognized her as one of the toughest and most successful prosecutors in the state. One well-known mobster, who later turned author, wrote in his biography that Ms. Brevetti was the one prosecutor he feared the most before his capture.
After leaving government, our attorney applied the same proven skills and work ethic to a highly successful 25-year career in a private criminal and civil law practice as the principal of her own firm and a partner in a global law firm.

Based upon her vast first-hand experience and exposure to many high profile matters confronted by her former clients, Ms. Brevetti is called upon to advise and assist individuals and businesses threatened by negative media events and crises to develop appropriate and effective strategies, remedial actions, and public responses.
Ms. Brevetti served as the General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of a New York Stock Exchange-traded public company that operated throughout the US and internationally.
