Practice areas
  1. Chapter 7 bankruptcy
    Have been helping clients eliminate ("discharge") their debts in Chapter 7 Bankruptcy for the past 16 years. I take cases in all of Southern California, including Orange County, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego. I also handle Chapter 13 cases, in which the client re-pays a portion of his or her debts over a period of 3-5 years. For some clients that don't qualify for a Ch. 7 Bankruptcy, a Ch. 13 cases is beneficial for them. I will help you decide which is best for you.

    29 years, 500 cases

  2. Criminal defense
    Have handled 100+ midsemeanor and felony cases, from pre-filing negotiations and investigation, pretrials, preliminary examinations, DNRs, and jury trials. Cases handled include DUIs, drug possession, possession for sale, paraphernalia, assault and battery, theft, burglary, domestic violence and spousal abuse, false/fake ID, driving on suspended license or without license, sexual assault and/or abuse.

    29 years, 300 cases

  3. DUI and DWI
    Have handled over 100 DUI and DWI cases in Orange, San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino and L.A. Counties, involving both alcohol and/or drugs. Also have handled numerous DMV Ad Min Per Se hearings.

    29 years, 100 cases

I have been an attorney in Orange County for nearly 17 years.  I enjoy the practice of law and helping clients get through diificult legal problems.  I atttempt to resolve cases early, as I believe this is usually in the client's best interest.  However, I am ready and willing to take cases to trial if necessary.


I am an avid runner, and have completed many marathons, and 5Ks and 10Ks.  I am married and have a 2 year old son.

Thank You!
Brad was very professional and kept us well informed with the proceedings of our case. I would recommend Brad to any of my friends or business associates who are looking at the possibility of filing bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy is an emotional decision and difficult for the average person to understand. Brad made the whole process much easier to navigate. He is knowledgeable while showing empathy and yet professional at all times; rare qualities in a lawyer! Everything was explained to me (and sometimes more than once). I knew what was happening and when. Everything went exactly as I was told. He is extremely knowledgeable, ethical, and always professional. I would recommend Brad to anyone who needs an attorney.

Helpful guidance from a caring professional
We are so glad we followed our friend's advice (she is also an attorney) and hired Brad to walk us through our bankruptcy. Without him, we would have been lost! Brad told us what information needed to be gathered, then he and his team did the rest. I cannot fathom how overwhelming it would be to go though this process alone...

Brad Calvin is a great attorney
Finding Brad Calvin to represent me in a nasty matter pertaining to a small claims appeal (which I had already prevailed in) was real blessing. He was highly professional, extraordinarily kind, and always answered any questions I had without hesitation. In addition, his responses were thorough and he fully addressed all concerns I had. While the situation I faced was not a pleasant one, Brad helped to alleviate a considerable amount of stress and kept in regular communication with me when the other party tired to play more games: he also explained how the law worked so I was able to understand the process of what was happening. I was extremely happy with the representation I received from Mr. Calvin and would highly recommend him to others. I only wish he handled additional matters as I’ve dealt with far too many lawyers who are unethical and only care about one thing – their own bank accounts. Mr. Calvin, on the other hand, was just the opposite – he was concerned with the case and protecting me from additional harm. Of course, it was also great when he helped me to prevail a second time. Thanks, Mr. Calvin!

Professional Service and Care
Mr. Calvin was very instrumental in helping me through a very tough time. My situation was a criminal case, which i had never experienced. Mr. Calvin was very precise in explaining all the different variables i faced in our first meeting and made sure i understood every aspect of my case. Since i've never been in trouble, i had a million questions which he had no issue answering patiently. Throughout the 6month process, he would follow up to see how i was doing and showed both compassion and understanding to the stress i was under. He was always on time on our court dates and made sure that he covered all of my questions after. I would higly recommend his ser vices to anyone in need. After my case was over, i felt fortunate to have had Mr. Calvin represent me in court.
