Bradley A. Waldrop

Mr. Waldrop draws from a diverse legal background when serving his clients. Before joining Taylor & Taylor, Mr. Waldrop had his own general law practice, for which he handled criminal defense, appeals, family law, civil claims and estate planning cases. Before that, he was a prosecutor for the State Attorney's Office of the Seventh Judicial Circuit.

As a prosecutor, Mr. Waldrop handled cases that included the areas of juvenile crimes, sex crimes, violent repeat offenses, DUI offenses, domestic battery, major drug trafficking and more. He served as co-chair on the Morgan Leppert case, a high-profile murder case that made the defendant the youngest female in Florida's prison system at the time.

Mr. Waldrop has also helped train law enforcement about performing criminal investigation operations while adhering to citizens' constitutional rights. He has also helped develop training material for new prosecutors. At Taylor & Taylor, attorney Bradley A.
