We Come Highly Recommended

  • Thank you Brad for representing me and getting the job done!

    “I would like to thank Brad Waldrop for his representation in my Community Control violation case. I was facing 48 months in Florida State Prison in Flagler and Saint Johns County. From the moment I first called and Spoke to Mr. Waldrop to the end of my case he remained professional,knowledgeable and encouraging. Mr. Waldrop responded to all of my e-mails in a timely manner even when he was on vacation this man answered my questions via e-mail. The final outcome of my case ended up with a reinstatement of Community Control in both Flagler and Saint Johns County. I never thought that I would be able to avoid prison as I was charged with Aggravated Stalking which carries a mandatory prison sentence. Mr. Waldrop in my opinion is an excellent Attorney and I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal aid. Thank you Brad for representing me and getting the job done!!”
