Always Positive & Full of knowledge!
Brad and Lacey are the B-E-S-T legal team you will ever hope to find in the world. And I don’t say this lightly.. I have had many attorneys in my life but no one, and I mean - no one - had this level of knowledge or cared about the client and the case like they do! They always have your best interest at heart, they let you know step by step what they have done for you and always update you. Their goal is to win your case for you, and they always reach their goal. They were never too busy to answer my questions, and ease my worries. It was such a relief having them on my side - they showed me that they can handle anything that comes up (and a lot did) and still get your case done in your favor in no time! I am extremely lucky to have found Lacey & Brad. If you are thinking your case is impossible, just hand it to them. They will make it possible.

Very Professional and thorough.
Used Brad for an issue I just couldn’t handle myself. He was very professional and always returned my calls himself. He genuinely cared about me.
