Margaret Brammall is a Partner at Toojian Law Firm. Margaret spent many years in medical research, investigating the connections between the brain and behavior. After graduating from law school later in life, she clerked for Justice Bridge and Justice Chambers at the Washington State Supreme Court. She then spent several years as a public defender, including six years with Thurston County Office of Assigned Counsel. During that time she was the public defender for Mental Health Court and she represented clients who faced civil commitment hearings. She also represented clients charged with felonies, most of whom had a mental illness. Since her retirement at the end of 2009, she has worked for the Toojian Law Firm.
Areas of Practice
