Exceeded and passed my expectations!
A year ago I was hit by a car while on my motorcycle by negligent red light runner. I was left with injuries and my motorcycle was totaled. Mr. Souders caring and sincere attitude helped ease my stress through the whole ongoing process. He always made sure that I was fully aware of and understood every step until the end when we closed. He told me himself, "My job is to take you from point A to point B as smoothly as possible." And he not only did that, but instead went past and beyond my expectations. I would absolutely recommend the services of Mr. Souders to anyone in need.

A great Attorney
Brad Souder has been and will always be my Attorney when I had my first accident where a Tractor trailer crossed a double yellow line and hit me head on a friend told me about Brad. After talking to him and decided to have him take my case I found Brad to be up front in every way. He and his office worked with me and got me the best medical treatment that I could ever had. Brad was fair and didn't try to take advantage of me in any way. I got a justify settlement and didn't charge me to the point where I had nothing left after everything was paid. In fact I had a second accident 3 years later and had Brad handle it also. He and his office are fair truthful and you receive a fair settlement and the best medical treatment like you deserve. With out a doubt I think you can't go wrong if Brad is your Attorney in fact when my son was in an accident he also had Brad as his Attorney. You can't go wrong with Brad Souder as your Attorney take my word for it. Gerry

Brad Souders is one of Tampas best Lawyers . He is very honest and well versed on the Laws of the State of FL. What some lawyers tell you they can't do he will do it. I would recommend him to any one. He will not take large amounts from your settlements like most lawyers will. When he is finished you will walk away with a smile on your face. He is very knowledgeable of his work and if there are any loopholes he will find them .I was his first client many years ago. So if you need a lawyer for an accident please contact Brad Souders.

***SIMPLY THE BEST***
On January 1, 2010, I was involved in a car accident, which resulted in nearly a year of doctor's appointments, testing and, ultimately, neck surgery. Due to the seriousness of the injuries, it became evident that I was going to need legal assistance dealing with doctors and insurance companies. Mr. Souders's and his staff were referred to me by a friend and I could not have asked for better. They handled every matter with professionalism and compassion. My husband spoke with Mr. Souders many times, via phone, regarding the case and my health, and was given great encouragement as well as good direction. The staff was always available to answer questions or give advice when we weren't sure what to do. They worked quickly on my behalf and got me the best results possible!! I spoke with Kelly often and she made me feel at ease and always helped me and encouraged me. I dealt with Ger more at the end of my case and it was no different. She handled every matter and took care of every last detail. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mr. Souders and his staff to anyone in need of a personal injury attorney. They are SIMPLY THE BEST!!!

Mororcycle Accident
The best attorney I have everr dealt with. Very professional and very knowledgable about all my needs and he took excellant care of me. Our first meeting was at my bed side in the hospital. Everything went smooth and on time. He's the best at his job. Thanks Brad
Response from Bradley Souders January 8, 2016
Thank you Mike! I remember our first meeting at the hospital, at your bedside, like it was yesterday. The outcome exceeded both of our expectations, especially considering we successfully got the VA to completely waive their lien; and as a result, we had a better than expected outcome. As a fellow biker, we clicked instantly, from beginning to end, to present. Thanks for your trust, confidence and friendship. Sincerely, Brad

Excellent at managing difficult circumstances
I was in a car accident, and the case was very complex. Mr. Souders and his team were able to work with me and navigate a difficult mix of multiple insurance companies and ensure that an insurance provider which initially had denied my claim ultimately came to a fair an honest settlement. I have referred other friends and family to his office, and he is always professional and thorough.

The best!!
We are all a bit apprehensive when hiring any professional in a field that we know nothing about. I know relatively nothing about law as it pertains to auto accidents. Thankfully, Brad Souders knows everything about his profession. I knew from our first meeting that we were on the same page. Besides being a tremendous attorney, Brad is a genuinely wonderful and compassionate human being. He is a brilliant man and takes all his clients' concerns to heart in a very personal way. I have had the misfortune of hiring a couple of, in my opinion, lazy and uncaring attorneys in the past (not necessarily accident related); in it just for the most money with the least effort. Brad's approach was a breath of fresh air. He is sincere, straightforward, frugal with your money and deeply cares about the welfare of his clients. He is always accessible via phone or email. If he is in a meeting and you leave a message, he will always reply promptly. No question is too trivial and Brad will take as much time answering your question as necessary; he is extremely patient and articulate. On the business side, Brad gave me excellent guidance throughout the entire process including following up with all my medical providers and interacting with the insurance companies. In the end, he negotiated settlement(s) for me that were far beyond my expectations. So, in addition to giving me peace of mind from day one Brad has secured a settlement that will allow me and my wife to move forward with our lives despite the financial setbacks we experienced as a result of my accident. I have now, and have always had 100% confidence in Brad's judgement and counsel. I would trust him with my life. If you need an attorney who is the most professional, most caring and give you the best chance at a just recovery, I strongly recommend Brad Souders. You will not be disappointed.

Response from Bradley Souders January 6, 2016
Dear Hal - Thanks for posting your review. It was our privilege to represent you in both accidents, the motorcycle accident and the car accident, both accidents certainly no fault of your own. Likewise, I am glad we obtained the best results possible, having the best Closing Statements, with lesser fees, the smallest costs possible, reduced medical bills or liens, to closing both matters with the best results possible, without delays. You deserve a lot of credit for this as we had great communication every step of the way. You also followed professional recommendations to obtain professional results; and, as mentioned previously, you might have even spoiled us. It has certainly been nice to stay in touch afterwards! Thanks again and please give my best wishes to Debi also. Sincerely, Brad

Frances - Thank you for writing! I am glad you were happy with the services and the results provided. It was a pleasure to represent your son years ago from the motorcycle accident and to represent you afterwards following your car accident. Both times, you were certainly a pleasure to represent; and, I am glad you were pleased with the results. Thanks again for your trust and confidence. Ride Safe, Brad
