Despite the fact that they possess a degree of wealth and influence that often times, allows them to never have to work or match the greatness of their parents, children of celebrities are often looked upon by the public to live up to the legacy of their parents. While that is achievable for children whose parents are actors or musicians, it is a more difficult thing to achieve when said parent is a sportsperson, like in the case of Brittany Favre.
However, that hasn’t stopped Brittany Favre, who is the daughter of the famous American football player, Brett Favre from kicking ass and making a name for herself in her chosen profession – Law. Not only has she lived up to the excellence her father was noted for during his career, but she has also, through her accomplishments, taken the name to further heights.

Her decision to pursue a career in law was born out of a desire she has had since she was a child. Although her college years saw her make mistakes that would have derailed her plan, she focused on her longtime passion and earned herself a J.D. As a lawyer, Brittany has chosen to specialize in Sports and Entertainment law, taking advantage of the accumulated experience she has gained from her exposure to her father’s world as a professional football player.
