Great advocate!
Angelina is a fantastic attorney and advocate. She really cares about your legal issue and works hard to take your legal problem off your plate. I could really relate to her and she was sympathetic to my problems. I would HIGHLY recommend her.

Great, caring advice!
Just wanted to say thank you. I've attempted to get help in the past but never looked in the right places. It created a strong sense of discouragement. Angelina, you and the AVVO team have made me feel like I'm not alone and you actually care to put the time in to have justice served RIGHT. Thank you.

Thrilled!
I am indigent and Ms. Bradley took my appellate case pro bono. She had very little to work with, but from what she had, she gave me hope in an otherwise hopeless situation. I greatly appreciate her representation.

Military law Attorney | Oct 03
Relationship: Co-worker
"I have had the pleasure of working both with and against Angelina as a Navy judge advocate. Angelina has a deep knowledge of the military as well as exceptional professional skills. She is a knowledgeable attorney, a smart and zealous advocate, and a compassionate counselor. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"
Domestic violence Attorney | May 25
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Ms. Bradley was opposing counsel on a DV trial I had several years ago. She was very-well prepared and knew the facts inside and out, all applicable statutes and case law, and it was apparent she was passionate about her work. and is an outstanding professional. I have had the pleasure of running into her over the last few years and my opinion of her work ethic, intelligence, and respect for her has not changed. I fully endorse this attorney."
Military law Attorney | May 26
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"Angelina is a dedicated, hard-working, and compassionate attorney and a great mentor. I was a legal intern with the Navy JAG Corps while Angelina was on active duty. I got to observe Angelina put her skills to work and provide excellent legal services to her fellow servicemen and servicewomen. Currently, Angelina and I are both active members of the Military Spouse JD Network. If you are looking for an attorney who will give your matter the attention and care it needs, Angelina is the way to go."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Feb 11
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Angelina is a great advocate. I worked against her in a divorce appellate case and she was excellent to work with. She worked hard for her client. She was professional, and I enjoyed working on the matter against her. I would highly recommend Angelina to anyone looking for representation on an important legal matter."
Military law Attorney | Oct 17
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Quite simply, Angelina is the finest Navy Judge Advocate that I have had the pleasure of working with. Bright, confident, and resourceful, Angelina works extremely hard as an advocate for her clients. She is an outstanding Navy Judge Advocate with a positive, can-do attitude and is always willing to push the envelope to get results for those she serves (within the constraints of what the Navy will allow). Angelina works way beyond the level you would expect of a junior officer and I would recommend her for anyone who requires superior legal counsel."
