People turn to an attorney when they need help dealing with a problem that has become too large for them to handle on their own. Every day, I see clients in difficult situations they did not create, dealing with pain they didn’t have before, trying to pay for medical expenses they can’t afford. And all the while, a large corporation or auto insurance company is trying to minimize what the victim is going through.
As an attorney licensed in North Carolina, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., Brad represents personal injury clients in cases throughout the Mid-Atlantic States. He began his legal career as an attorney with the Legal Aid Society of NW North Carolina (now known as Legal Aid of North Carolina), fighting for the rights of those who could not otherwise afford legal representation. Brad still volunteers his services through legal aid societies to clients on a pro bono basis.
Helping personal injury clients. As long as he can remember, the idea of being able to advocate for those unable to do it for themselves has been Brad’s cause. A serious injury can completely destroy the personal, financial and emotional well-being of a client. Brad often helps clients injured through the negligence of others gain access to medical care and other resources until their cases can be settled or won at trial.
Protecting the rights of NC individuals to legal counsel. Brad’s early history provided the foundation for his continuing interest in protecting the individual’s rights to legal counsel in his state. Several legislative initiatives in North Carolina are threatening to limit the ways in which people can research and obtain legal representation. Backed by powerful insurance companies, these proposed laws seek to curtail an attorney’s ability to reach out to prospective clients. Brad works with several professional organizations to fight these initiatives.
Practice areas. Brad’s clients include those who have been seriously injured in North Carolina car, truck, and motorcycle accidents as well as from slip-and-fall, dangerous products, dog bites, and other causes.
