Client Reviews
"My experience with Brad has been incredible. He has represented me on several issues over the last two years. He is always available to meet or talk about your case. He seems to really care about his client and doing all he can to get the best out come possible. Also his staff is client orientated and very helpful. Brad is more then my attorney, he is my friend. Brad is not your typical lawyer, he really cares about his client not billing hours." David Cusano
