About me

Brad is a leading criminal defense attorney with extensive experience handling complex criminal matters in state and federal trial and appellate courts throughout the country, including in the United States Supreme Court. Brad regularly represents people charged with narcotics offenses, armed robbery, firearm offenses and a multitude of other federal and state crimes.  He is admitted to practice in Tennessee, New York, and on specific cases in New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Hawaii, Missouri, North Carolina, Nebraska and Georgia.  He regularly travels across the country to represent people charged with crimes.  

Brad's practice also includes the representation of executives and other individuals in connection with a variety of federal and state offenses, including computer fraud and abuse, tax fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, honest services fraud, money laundering, export violations, environmental crimes, bribery of government officials and theft of trade secrets.  

Brad has tried cases in federal and state courts around the country.  In many of those cases the individual was acquitted of charges or recieved a reduced sentence.  In addition to his trial skill, Brad is a skillful negotiator and has helped people obtain plea agreements leading to charges being dismissed, probation or a significanlty lower jail sentence in the most serious cases.

Brad is also a skillful criminal appellate attorney.  Most recently, Brad was successful in having the United States Supreme Court grant Certiorari and reverse his client’s sentence for pharmacy robbery and related firearm offenses.  Approximately 1% of all Supreme Court appeals are granted Certiorari each year. 

Even if you have not been charged yet, Brad has also represented multiple individuals in investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission, Department of Justice (Cybercrime Division, Environmental Protection Division, Public Corruption Division), Postal Inspector, Department of Homeland Security, Internal Revenue Service and various other federal agencies prior to charges being brought.  In many of those cases no charges were ever brought against the investigated person.
