  • Definitely will be recommending!

    “After two years of dealing with these charges, we had to hire a lawyer only because the judge told us to. I went with somebody that I knew could handle it. We hired Brad on short notice and he took care of the issues at hand swiftly. So glad it didn't pan out for much longer after we hired him. Definitely will be recommending and referring people to him in the future.”
