My Background

At my law firm, The Law Offices of C. Bradley Hallen, I have been working for over three decades to help the victims of accidents and other personal injury cases achieve justice. As your attorney, I will work together with you to help get the compensation that you need and deserve.

I have a long history of success in California personal injury cases. Over the years, I have helped many families who have seen their lives turned upside down due to a serious accident. I know that this is a tough time. I have seen how people can quickly become overwhelmed by all of their questions and concerns about their legal claim.

I want you to know that I am looking out for you. Throughout the years, I have built a strong reputation in the local legal community. I have obtained an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating possible. I was also selected as a Super Lawyer in 2014-2016 and am a graduate of the prestigious Trial Lawyers College.

Every personal injury case tells a story, and I want to know yours. I want you to feel confident that you have an experienced trial lawyer in your corner. I will be a strong advocate for your claims and am completely committed to helping you obtain fair and just results.

Personal Injury Experience
I interviewed two lawyers after fracturing my shoulder to help determine if I should pursue a personal injury claim. Professional, kind and reassuring was CB Hallen who took the case.  We met at his office, a beautiful location in Cardiff, and signed off to proceed.  The initial value Brad provided was a formal letter detailing what to expect during the process, and the timelines.  Brad will also accomodate virtual meetings, conveniently alleviating the commute to his office - although my preference was to interact directly.  The process is long with elements of vulnerability, however Brad always remained available to answer questions. He exudes patience, kindness, diligence, and is extremely knowledgeable in his field of expertise. This is very reassuring to those unfamiliar with the law surrounding personal injury issues.  The case settled with a favorable outcome. I felt so grateful we persevered and definitely cherish having had the opportunity to work with CB Hallen. He is an esteemed professional who lends quality and finesse to the experience.

"It is unfair to believe everything you hear about lawyers, some of it might not be true." - Gerald F. Lieberman What do you do when you need a personal injury attorney? It has been suggested that you get referrals from friends...check to make sure they are specialized in your area of need..and, of course, you'd want EXPERIENCE (like 45 years...-and a plus- working with very well known... exceptional colleagues) But the bottom line is,... you want a " tough" one. Tough means many things...emotionally strong and hard to influence, being determined....refusing to know, ...what you need to win. We didn't know that, of course, as we'd never had a need for an attorney. Boy, did we get an AWESOME attorney by chance... You don't need luck...take our word for it need Mr. C Bradley Hallen! Mr. Hallen was very APPROACHABLE...he LISTENED and got the information he needed to get from us and, ...he was off! Within days, he had visited the accident scene...taken videos...and just generally "got to it". He was VERY THROUGH...he checked out everything. We found out when you call, you get a call back...HE RESPONDS ..not everyone does that nowadays. His office was VERY PROFESSIONAL. He referred us to other professionals....people who would help us....all sorts.... Doctors, Vocational specialist, and physical therapists...even more. He INCLUDED US in every step...and provided us with valuable information and HE WAS RIGHT THERE to help us make the right decisions EVERY STEP OF THE WAY! The end result? HE PRODUCED A FANTASTIC result...much better than we'd even hoped for. WHAT MORE CAN YOU ASK FOR?
