Friendly, concise and effective
I hired Attorney Bradford to represent me in a complex civil matter. I was really worried because my adversary hired a top firm, but Attorney Bradford was every bit as formidable and actually forced the other side to settle with me. I received far more than I could have hope for. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a fighter but can't afford to hire an army.

Great lawyer
Lyman is an outstanding lawyer. He is very knowledgeable, responsive, diligent, reasonable, pleasure to work with. He always took time to explain, answer questions, go through documentation at length. I spoke with a number of other lawyers in my process of looking for one to hire, and I am delighted that we went with him, because six month and a trial later, he proved that we made the absolute right choice.

A rare gem of an attorney!
In meeting with Mr. Bradford, I discovered him to be very astute, professional, possesses great intellect, and takes a keen interest in his clients' matters. He is resourceful and exhibits a high degree of skill along with an amiable demeanor. Some attorneys have great skill but treat clients poorly, and other attorneys are considerate towards clients but lack legal skill. Mr. Bradford highly excels in both conduct and skill--RARE! I would feel very comfortable with his advocacy on my behalf, and in fact found myself asking him about several matters in hope that he would take on some or all of them. :) He is very quick and excellent at analyzing cases.

Fantastic real estate and litigation attorney
Mr. Bradford is fantastic. His rates are very reasonable in proportion to his skill. I was very impressed with how he handled my matter in and out of the courtroom. Highly recommended!

The Best of the Best
I hired Lyman to represent me in a landlord tenant matter involving a very difficult tenant. I can’t believe how fast Lyman had him removed from my property. He is now my go-to guy for all things real estate. Not only does he do an excellent job but he also educates me every step of the way so I know what’s going on. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my friends, family, or anyone else with real estate issues.

"Lyman ("Brad") is reliable, professional and knowledgeable. I do not hesitate to refer any clients or my own family to Brad, as I can rest assured he will give the Client and matter the attention it deserves. There are many competent attorneys out there, but not all of them will treat a given Client with the sensitivity and respect they require. That is not a concern when it comes to Brad."
