about breanna

Breanna was born and raised in Olympia, Washington. She attended Gonzaga University School of Law and graduated cum laude with her Juris Doctor (JD) in 2017. During law school, she worked for the Gonzaga Law Clinic where she assisted in handling Criminal Law matters and Estate Planning in Superior and Tribal courts. She also worked as a legal assistant for Paukert & Troppmann, PLLC helping with personal injury cases.

Being deeply rooted in Olympia, Breanna decided to return after passing the bar and spent two and a half years with the Department of Social and Health Services in the division of Adult Protective Services trying cases for the Department before the Office of Administrative Hearings. While working at the Department, she opened her own private practice handling Estate Planning, Contracts, and Family Law matters.  

Coming from a long line of family construction and small business owners, Breanna is passionate about helping and supporting the community. She volunteers as often as she can to try and give back. She enjoys spending time with her family, friends and pets. She plays volleyball competitively year-round and when she’s not playing volleyball, she is attempting DIY projects at home.  

She is a member of the Thurston County Bar Association – Young Lawyers Section and Washington Women Lawyers – Capitol Chapter.


Wanted to share an excellent and reassuring customer service I have received from the first phone call from Breanna & Mr. Ostrander. 5 STAR! I am very grateful for representation received. Being with same company for 31 years, since Sept of 1991, I have never had a claim.

Breanna was instrumental on getting my wage declaration correct (for my own future health and benefit in case things need attention in future) as well as phone meetings on Neurosurgeon change of primary care. Not to mention the caveats starting out with L&I closing my claim prematurely. This was a challenge to reopen, however success on behalf of Breanna. Wish I would have known the process within the first year of taking on paperwork and responsibilities of claim, would have pursued WWOLAW at that time.

This has been a challenge to make sure I am taken care while being a Dad and productive worker at my job at the same time. With Breanna and your firm behind me I know for a fact my health and important decisions moving forward is in top notch hands. Thank you for being a partner with me and your time and effort.” Todd Stewart
