A fourth generation Nevadan, Brent T. Kolvet grew up in the small northern Nevada town of Fernley. He graduated from the University of Nevada at Reno in 1972 with a pre-law major and an emphasis in history. Mr. Kolvet continued his education at McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, California from which he received his J.D. in 1976. After graduating from law school, he clerked for the Honorable Noel E. Manoukian, Justice, Nevada Supreme Court. Mr. Kolvet was admitted to the Nevada Bar in 1976 and worked as a Deputy District Attorney for Douglas County. A few years later, while in private practice in Minden, Nevada, he was elected as the District Attorney of Douglas County in 1983. As District Attorney, he also served as County Counsel for Douglas County which afforded him the opportunity to practice both criminal and civil law.

As a direct result of his earlier extensive criminal law practice, since joining Thorndal Armstrong in 1971, Mr. Kolvet has acted as special prosecutor in two capital murder cases. While insurance defense is the primary focus of his current practice, Mr. Kolvet continues to handle water rights cases, civil rights cases, and planning and zoning cases.

Mr. Kolvet is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court District of Nevada and before the U.S. Court of Appeals 9th Circuit.

Mr. Kolvet is AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell.
