Janette Brimmer

Janette Brimmer is a staff attorney at Earthjustice. She spent most of the first 20+ years of her law career working to protect the forest, lakes, and prairies of Minnesota (with a brief stint in her home state of Wisconsin). Janette attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for both undergrad and law school, receiving her J.D. in 1986. Her law career has involved private practice, working for the Attorneys General of Wisconsin and Minnesota, and serving as the Legal Director for the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy. Janette also taught Environmental and Natural Resources Law at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota and at the University of Minnesota, College of Natural Resources. She intends to spend the next 20+ years (or more!) working to protect the Northwest. In her spare time she roots around in her garden, reads a ridiculous amount, romps with her two big dogs, and bikes, hikes and camps.
