Anthony Bradley is an Excellent Attorney
Anthony Bradley is an Excellent Attorney. He is Honest, Dependable, Trustworthy, and shows great Integrity. Anthony Bradley is an attorney that I can count on! Anthony was very receptive to our needs and was very efficient in drafting our will. I would recommend Anthony to my friends and family. He has helped not only my family but many others in very emotional times. I wouldn't consider using anyone else! Not only is Anthony among the most qualified and experienced Elder Care, VA and Estate Planning attorneys, he also treats each client with a high degree of caring and attention. We have found him to be extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy. He has always gone above and beyond to make sure things were done right. You can always rely on the council of Anthony Bradley. Whenever I am in need of legal advice I talk to Anthony because I know I am getting the best guidance possible. Anthony can explain things on our level. Anthony doesn't just tell you what you want to hear, but listens carefully and gives you the honest, frank advice that is needed.

Outstanding
The Bradley Law Firm is outstanding! Anthony Bradley and his firm assisted my mother in obtaining her full VA Benefit for 'Aid and Attendance'. The funds received thru this benefit where of critical importance in providing for her care over the past couple of years. Anthony Bradley and his staff are experts in this field. This is of vital importance, as I've had friends who attempted to do VA paperwork on their own and they were either denied or received a substantially reduced benefit. The cost of these services provided by Bradley's Firm paid for themself within a matter of just a few short months. Since Bradley's initial assistance with my mothers affairs, we have chosen Anthony Bradley and his firm for all our legal needs. They are to be trusted and get my highest recommendation!!!!

VA AID & ATTENDANCE
My father is a WWll veteran and he and I attended a VA seminar held by Anthony Bradley one Saturday morning. Mr. Bradley explained many benefits that Dad was able to qualify for that we were totally unaware of. Approximately a week later my Dad and I meet with Mr. Bradley to start the application for the VA assistance. Mr. Bradley and his wonderful staff handled all the application paperwork for the Aid and Attendance benefit for my Dad. Within 30 days Dad received his award letter from Veterans Affairs granting him the Aid & Attendance benefit. We are truly grateful for Mr. Bradley in all his efforts to make this benefit possible. I urge everyone who has elderly fathers or grandfathers who served in our military to contact Mr. Bradley for expert legal advice and assistance with the Aid & Attendance paperwork.

Culpepper Place Assisted Living
As a Director in an assisted living facility, it is my responsibility to make sure that anyone I refer to our residents meets strict guidelines and standards. Anthony not only meets these standards, he goes above and beyond in every way. As a VA Accredited Attorney, the assistance that he has provided with the VA Aid & Attendance Pension has been outstanding. The relationships he has built with our elderly are not just professional, they are personal. He is kind, honest and trustworthy, and that means the world to them! In addition to our current residents, I also refer Anthony to any potential residents, whether it's walk-ins, phone calls, or at events.

Trusted attorney, works hard, gets results, and truly cares for his clients.
As a financial planner, I have referred numerous clients to Anthony. I have referred clients to him for many different legal matters including Veterans Benefits, Estate Planning, Medicaid Planning, Elder Law Planning, Business, and Real Estate. In every situation he has proved himself over and over again to be consistent, caring, and results driven in his efforts. I highly recommend that anyone who is looking for an exceptional attorney, give Anthony a call. Let him take the legal burden off your shoulders and put your mind at ease as he has done for me and my clients on so many different occasions.

One of the best estate planning attorneys in the South.
Anthony is one of the most knowledgeable estate planning attorneys in the state, and can be trusted to give you the best advice. He doesn't just tell you what you want to hear, but listens carefully and gives you the honest, frank advice that is needed. Also a tenancious contract negotiator, one of the best I've seen at getting a deal done in your favor.

Honesty, Discipline and Integrity.
Being a financial service professional clients are my greatest asset and am often asked by them for referrals to a good attorney. I have always had reservations in referring to any attorney. Anthony has removed that reservation. I consistently question my clients as to the quality of service Anthony provides, and am never shocked with their responses. My clients pride themselves on sending Anthony more business. That is a true testament to the quality of work he proudly provides.

A guinely honest and caring attorney
The Bradley Law Firm carefully handled the details involved with my estate planning. Anthony recently represented me in the acquisition of the remaining shares of a family business. I am divorced with a minor child so not only was the corporation involved but also guardianship and a trust for my son. Anthony provided sound advice in addition to meticulous document preparation. I can honestly say that Anthony Bradley truly cares about his clients and has their very best interests in mind. This was evident throughout the process of my corporate buyout and with all of my personal legal documents. Christi Kelley Memphis, TN

Highly Recommend Anthony Bradley
Anthony Bradley went above and beyond to help my family get Aid & Attendance VA Benefits for my father who is a WWII Veteran. My father was awarded the highest benefits available to him which covers all of his housing, meals, skilled nursing care, etc... at the veteran's home where he is living. Anthony was also able to secure all back pay benefits to my sister, who was my father's primary caregiver and was reimbursed for his and also her expenses. Anthony has a heart for veteran's and it showed through his diligence and hard work in getting these benefits for my father. His staff was always friendly, helpful and professional. My family and I feel blessed to have found him. Anthony is loyal and trustworthy and I highly recommend him.

Couldn't Have Done It Without Anthony Badley
I worked on research, paperwork, and dealt with bureaucracy for months before a friend suggested Anthony Bradley. I met with him, liked him immediately, and then a few days later asked for his help. He is so mild-mannered that I didn't know if he could fight for us if needed, but he very quickly proved to be a great attorney. Anthony is passionate about helping families get VA benefits for their loved ones. Dad was a war hero in WWII, and I'm happy to say that the VA has granted dad the help he needs. Vets deserve better care. It's a shame that it takes hiring an attorney to get results. I'm thankful that Anthony Bradley is my attorney and I recommend him highly. I couldn't have obtained dad's VA benefits without Anthony Bradley's help.

Terrible
After 2 years of waiting for Mr. Bradley to submit information for VA benefits, he called me personally and asked me to come to his office. A long story, suffice it to say he and his staff completely dropped the ball, and they never contacted the VA. My husband was a Vietnam vet and he passed away in November 2018. June 2020, and he never applied for benefits for my husband or for me, as I was entitled to spouse benefits. On to another attorney.
