Please, Call me Brad.
I was born and raised in the Shoals. After graduating from Muscle Shoals High School, then the University of Alabama at Birmingham, I spent nearly a decade working the streets as an officer for the Tuscaloosa Police Department. While simultaneously working midnight shift patrol, I graduated as Valedictorian of the Birmingham School of Law, class of 2016, after which I moved to Florence to open my law office. Since that time I have successfully represented thousands of clients facing myriad problems and obstacles in multiple jurisdictions in Alabama and Tennessee.
I proudly serve and have served in a number of capacities, including as the President of the Lauderdale Bar Association, as a member of the Lauderdale County Indigent Defense Advisory Board, as the Lauderdale County General Conservator and Administrator, as Board Counsel for the Shoals Area Association of REALTORS, formerly as the District 1 Vice President of the Alabama Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and formerly as the President of the Shoals Community Theater. In January of 2021 I was ecstatic to be published, alongside the Honorable Will Motlow, Probate Judge of Lauderdale County, when a 5-page article we authored on common evidentiary and procedural challenges and issues faced by attorneys litigating cases in probate court appeared prominently in the Alabama Lawyer, our industry periodical circulated to all members of the State Bar. In November of 2021 I was appointed by the President of the Alabama Bar Association to serve as one of five members of the statewide Indigent Defense Review Panel. In June of 2022, I graduated from the National Criminal Defense College's prestigious Trial Practice Institute, taught, at the time, at the Roger Williams University School of Law in Bristol, Rhode Island. Most recently, in January of 2023, I was appointed as one of two defense attorneys seated on the Lauderdale County Juvenile Treatment Court team.
My lovely wife, Leigh Anne Landis, and I are happy to call downtown Florence our home. In my free time I enjoy working as an adjunct professor of Criminal Procedure at the Birmingham School of Law, attending shows, and spending as much time as possible in Savannah, Georgia. I am available for a meeting at my office, over a cup of coffee, or while sharing a drink. Contact me today to schedule that meeting.
