After working as a Deputy District Attorney and a criminal defense attorney, Brad moved on to represent children as a Guardian ad litem and then as an Assistant County Attorney for child protection. Brad has developed the type of courtroom skills that can only be found through experience, conducting literally thousands of contested hearings on all types of cases, from multi-week jury trials to emergency hearings. While always willing to litigate if needed, Brad strongly believes that in family cases, reaching a good result through negotiation and resolution is often in the best interest of the parties and their children.
Handling complex parental responsibility actions requires a deep knowledge of the needs of children.

Parenting disputes are challenging, and Brad takes pride in listening carefully to parents and giving them the advice that they need to make good long-term decisions about their children.
