He has represented doctors, lawyers, accountants, distributors, product manufacturers, general contractors and subcontractors, restaurants and bars, large transportation companies, and heavy equipment companies.

Throughout his career, Brad has defended large and small corporations, as well as professional individuals throughout the State of Kentucky in multiple areas of civil litigation through trial, arbitration and mediation of liability. Brad also served as assigned counsel and insurance coverage counsel for commercial and personal lines carriers, as well as personal counsel for self-insured businesses.

CASE HIGHLIGHTS

  • In 2016, Brad obtained a defense verdict on a social host liability case wherein the plaintiff was beat up at a party at the defendant’s home. At the time there was no law in the State of Kentucky on private individuals and their duties when alcohol is being served.  Brad’s defense was that the Dram Shop laws did not apply to a situation where the host was serving alcohol in a social capacity and not for profit.  After the case went up on appeal, and the Court of Appeals also agreed with Brad, it became a recorded decision in the Law of Kentucky.
  • Brad recently obtained a directed verdict on a Bad Faith Trial in an Eastern Kentucky Court wherein the last demand by the plaintiff was $7,500,000.
  • In 2016, Brad tried a multi-million product liability case wherein, on the second day of trial, the judge recommended that the plaintiff accept whatever the defense offered.
  • In 2015, Brad successfully tried a multi-million case involving a garagekeepers policy and obtained a defense verdict. In the same year, he defended a large loss medical malpractice claim and received a defense verdict on liability.
