I enjoy golfing, landscaping and raising my three beautiful girls.  


When I'm not at work or at home, I'm usually busy spending the little spare time I have left representing our country as a Judge Advocate in the U.S. Army Reserves. Currently, I am the Senior Defense Counsel of the 22nd Legal Operations Detachment - Fort Sam Houston Team.  


I spend about four weeks out of the year on Active Duty, defending those who defend America at installations such as Fort Hood, TX; Fort Bliss, TX: Fort Richardson, AK; Fort Polk, LA.  Of course, I spend one weekend a month at Fort Sam Houston, representing Active Duty Soldiers who are facing elimination from the Army or Non-Judicial Punishment.


I've been in the military 16 years now: My first four were enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps, primarily at Camp Pendleton, CA.  From there, I deployed to the Gulf as part of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm.  I joined the Army as a 1st Lieutenant after 9/11, and later served at Fort Huachuca, AZ; Wuerzburg, Germany with the 1st Infantry Division ("Big Red One"); Hohenfels, Germany (Joint Multinational Readiness Center); and Fort Hood, Texas.


While my military career is winding down, I especially enjoy representing those who have also served.

The BEST lawyer
I don’t even know where to start. Mr. Glendenning and his team have gone above and beyond in every way possible to ensure that we were prepared and could win our child custody case - and we did. He tirelessly worked over two continents, two countries, three states and over three years to make sure I won custody of my children in what was a very complicated and strenuous case. He spent countless hours, probably hundreds of phone calls in my name and listened to me cry on multiple occasions with total compassion. He showed up to court virtually during the pandemic totally prepared and really advocated for us. Even after the case was won, he has followed up with our family and made sure that all information and documents were to me accurately and correctly and very fast. He did all of this while charging a super fair and reasonable price. I really do not have enough kind words and praise to describe the level of service, compassion and professionalism I received from Mr. Glendenning and his entire staff. I hope our family is never in this position again, but if so I know that we are in the best hands! Thanks you so much Bradford, Samuel and Blanca!

The divorce process is not an easy one, especially when a child is involved. Brad handled my case professionally and demonstrated a strong knowledge of family law. I highly recommend Brad if you are looking for representation in a divorce case.

Excellent attorney
I hired Brad and he did a great job and was very detailed and helpful. This was the first time I had ever had an attorney. I was unsure what to expect, but his office staff was always available, easy to get in touch with, and made the process much easier than I thought it would be. His fees are very reasonable. I highly recommend his services. Excellent experience throughout the whole time. He is a true professional and a man of his word. Very knowledgeable and caring about his clients. Would totally recommend him and most definitely go to him should there be another need in the future.

Outstanding Legal Representation
I retained Mr. Glendening shortly after our initial consult, regarding my family law matter . He was very honest with me regarding the results of my case, because it involved a lot of obstacles. The matter had also changed jurisdiction from another state to Texas as well. Mr. Glendening and his staff kept me informed at all times of my case as it progressed. His staff also emailed me back whenever I had questions. Mr. Glendening was able to convince the judge assigned to my case to grant me the SPO (standard Possession Order) so that I may finally spend time with my children. He also had my child support obligation lowered substantially. If I had to retain another attorney for a family law matter, I would retain Mr, Glendening gain without question.

Quick and Easy Divorce
Mr Glendening handled my case in a most expeditious manner. My case was filed with in 24 hours and my court date set immediately after the decree was prepared and approved by the opposing party. He tailored his advice to fit my situation and truly looked out for the best interest of my child when preparing the decree. I wouldn't recommend anyone else.

Very professional attorney!
I hired Mr. Glendening to handle my divorce. I was in a tough spot financially but his fee was very reasonable. My case started easy and it got difficult fast, but the outcome was everything I wanted. He also recently hired new legal assistant who is very polite and efficient. I would definitely recommend him!

Best Divorce Attorney in Central Texas
Mr. Glendening was very professional, responded quickly, and had my case filed within 24 hours of my retaining him. My decree was somewhat tricky and he made all concessions I requested as well as anticipated many others. I would definitely recommend him to others.

Attorney- Good, Office staff- TERRIBLE
Mr Glendedning is a good lawyer, fees were reasonable, dates were handled promptly. His office staff are terrible. Billing statements were late, amount due was never the same twice. Calls are never returned. Very unprofessional staff in office.

Horrible response time
Brad did an awesome job on my case. He fought for us and gave me good direction. Dealing with his staff and getting timely responses even on things like paying my bill was a nightmare. I had to call to check on my case as I couldn't get responses back. It took 20 months to get a document finished that both my ex and I agreed on and had went over together. After we had both signed the document, it still took 2 months for them to take it to get signed by a judge.

"I endorse this lawyer. I served on active duty with Brad, tried a case with him and watched him try several others. Brad is one of the best natural talents I have ever seen in a courtroom. In the case we tried together, his knowledge of the case, preparation and in-court presence won over the panel to the tune of "not guilty" findings on most of the specifications and a fabulous sentencing verdict (back time and no discharge)."
