Brad represents primarily small businesses, and so he practices primarily in the areas of law that small businesses need. As a practical matter, Brad helps companies form their businesses, deal with employees, draft and review contracts, and file or defend lawsuits when needed.
Before opening his practice in the East Valley in 1998, Brad practiced for several years at two large firms in downtown Phoenix: Jennings, Strouss & Salmon, PLC and Bryan Cave LLP. Brad graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in International Relations from Brigham Young University. He received his law degree with academic honors from the University of Chicago. Brad has been rated as "AV" (preeminent) by his peers at Martindale-Hubbell. This is the highest possible rating.
Brad helps his clients on the "litigation" side of the law as well as on the "business" side.
Because his practice has a substantial litigation component, Brad has spent considerable time in court. Brad has represented clients in numerous jury trials in Superior Court, before the Arizona Court of Appeals, Arizona Supreme Court, and Federal District Court. Brad has also appeared with clients before various Justice Courts, administrative tribunals, and in many arbitrations and mediations.
Brad also advises his clients on how to structure their businesses, how to maintain corporate and LLC records, how to negotiate and draft contracts, how to get their money if bills go unpaid, how to deal with employees, and how to manage their legal risk—all with an eye toward avoiding litigation if at all possible.
Brad advises franchisor clients on the complicated process of how to properly register under the franchise and business laws of all applicable states. He is a member of the Franchise Forum of the American Bar Association, and is a franchise attorney.
Brad represents clients from all around the United States—literally, from New York to California, Alaska to Georgia and places in between—who have business or other interests in Arizona. Brad has also traveled globally. He spent two years in Japan as a volunteer missionary. He has volunteered in orphanages in Peru and Mozambique, given service in Fiji and he has also traveled to Belize, Morocco, and various countries in western Europe. Brad is active in the community, he has served as a foster parent and a volunteer court-appointed special advocate for foster children in Maricopa County.
For individuals who are considering retaining the firm, we would be happy to provide contact information for some of Brad's current clients.
