AWARDS & ACCOLADES
“Brad helped me successfully navigate a very messy divorce. Aside from his considerable skills as an attorney, it is his compassion and overall concern for my well-being that I have appreciated the most.”Leanneclient
“This attorney represented me in a family law proceeding. He listened well to my concerns and I felt I had the best representation available. He is realistic and gave me excellent counsel about what I could expect. Most importantly, he took my case seriously and I didn't feel I had to compete for a moment of his time.”Anonymousclient
“Bradley Litchfield is an extremely competent attorney. He impressed me with his skills throughout my case, from his listening to achieve a thorough understanding of my case, to his research and preparation pre-hearing, and especially to his sharp and effective arguments in court. The confidence I entrusted in him to represent me in resolving an extreme anxiety producing stalking situation was completely well-earned and deserved. Moreover, since winning the case, other related issues have arisen, and he has always made himself immediately available to assist me, responding within hours, sometimes minutes, to my emails. He even returned my call on a Sunday when a police officer needed more information in regards to details of the stalking order before making an arrest for repeated violations. If I were to need the services of an attorney again, I wouldn't hesitate to contact him to represent me. When friends ask me for a good lawyer, I always give his name. I highly recommend Attorney Litchfield.”AnonymousClient
“This was a divorce case that took longer then 6 months to resolve. There was domestic violence and restraining orders and it was a horrible case. He was always there for me and allowed me to call him when ever I needed him. He always kept things on track and remained honest. When the other side was being very dishonest he kept things going forward. He worked very hard on my case. He was very ethical in his practice and did everything he could to help me with my divorce. This attorney makes me want to put a bumper sticker on my car that reads "I love my attorney." He was the best! I have always had a bitter taste for attorney's but If you need one, I highly recommend Brad Litchfield. He is not just your attorney, but he is a friend.”Anonymousclient
“After my ex wife filed a modification of custody, I needed legal help. I first met with a different attorney at a different firm. I was told I could either give into my ex now or spend a lot of money and the judge would give her most of what she wanted anyway. That was not okay with me. I was not going to give away any rights as a father or have an attorney that wouldn't fight for me. After sharing my frustrations with a friend she recommended I talk to Brad Litchfield. After our first consultation, I knew I found the right attorney for me. Brad was willing to fight for me and that's what he did. Brad has a very professional attitude and great knowledge of the law. He was able to settle my case pre trial. I kept all of my rights as a father and my son was the real winner.”Jenclient
