"Mr. Marshall got my case reduced dramatically. I was facing serious points and conviction on my DMV record and within 24 hours of hiring Mr. Marshall, he was able to get my case amended with no DMV conviction or points on my record and was able to keep me from having to appear in court. Mr. Marshall was very prompt in resolving this case and staying in communication with me constantly while resolving the issue. I would highly recommend Bradley and he will be the first call if the need ever arises again for a lawyer."

"I have a consultation with Mr. Marshall after my DUI and hit & run. After that meeting, I knew he would be the perfect lawyer to help me maneuver my situation and get the best possible outcome, so I hired him. Brad was very meticulous from start to finish and provided me with very specific information on his approach and even offered me detailed information on things I could do myself to help with the outcome. We worked very well together and had constant communication during the four months it took to resolve my case. He went out of his way to make this difficult time as seamless as possible for myself and my family. The final outcome of a DUI (.19) and hit & run was a dismissal of the hit and run and the DUI was reduced to a reckless driving offense. I could not have hoped for a better outcome. Brad’s professionalism and tireless efforts made this possible, and I most certainly recommend hiring him!"

"I had a reckless driving ticket for speed and needed an attorney. I contacted Brad, and he gave me clear instructions on what to do before the court and for my court date (a nerve-wracking experience for anyone). He is a miracle worker. All charges were dropped, the best possible outcome. If you want a great attorney, Brad is the man."

"Mr. Marshall was in short, amazing. I contacted him in panic off of a referral from a neighbor and within the first several minutes of our consult call, I felt at ease. My case had many administrative issues which caused delays: which was causing problems for my work. He was creative and innovative and obviously very effective in discussing with prosecutors because he was able to get my case dismissed several weeks earlier allowing me to move forward with some work. I fully recommend Mr. Marshall, and I really hope I don’t need his services again, but if I do I won’t hesitate to call."

"First off, Bradley was very kind, empathetic, and personable. He explained the process to me and gave his opinion of what should be done and how we would achieve that goal. I followed through with his suggestions and he was spot on with his knowledge by getting my case dismissed without ever even having to go to my court date! Very effective! We are now going for expungement. I would definitely recommend Bradley for his demeanor and know-how of the legal system. Five stars."

"Brad successfully got my reckless driving ticket lowered to a much more minor moving violation. We had multiple consults, he put together a game plan and executed on it perfectly. I would 100% refer Brad to anyone in a similar position. Well worth his reasonable fee!"

"Brad was able to reduce my 6 point speeding ticket to a zero point ticket and save me from having my license suspended. He was easy to work with, replied quickly to all communication and kept me informed of everything that was happening. He got results that surpassed what I had even hoped for. Thank you Brad!"

"Bradley Marshall represented me for my DUI charge in 2020. I was unfamiliar with the process and he provided exceptional guidance throughout. He was both knowledgeable and understanding of my particular situation and I felt completely comfortable with him handling my case. Not only did he negotiate a favorable outcome for me, he has remained responsive and has continued to provide assistance even after the conclusion of the court case. I would recommend his counsel to anyone."

"When I first contacted Mr. Marshall he gave me three possible outcomes: a bad one, a good one, and an ideal one. In the end, he was able to secure the ideal outcome. Mr. Marshall was extremely proactive and took time to explore every possible avenue of action. He worked diligently to collect every detail of the case and was consistent about checking in with me to provide any updates. I never had to appear in court, and the charges were dropped. Couldn’t get much better. Thank you, Mr. Marshal."

"By understanding the situation, asking the right questions and listening to the answers Brad was able to achieve a tremendous result. He did a great job of dispassionately summarizing the situation and giving color on the potential results and issues. He then used his experience and situational awareness to achieve a tremendous result, which we were grateful for."

"It’s interesting how I ended up hiring Brad as my defense attorney. I met him when he was a CA, but as soon as I found out he became a defense attorney, I knew I wanted no one but him to represent me for my case. He was great at communicating every step in the process, letting me know exactly what to expect, and got the job done quickly.

After hiring Brad as my defense attorney, I felt the anxiety go away, as knew I was in good hands. My response every time when friends and coworkers asked how I could be so calm about my case was this: “If there ever was an attorney to have in my corner for what I’m dealing with, he is it.” Everyone’s case is different, but even though mine was pretty odd and a bit difficult, Brad was able to sort out the mess and make sense of it all.

I highly recommend Brad if you’re looking for a professional, experienced, and dedicated defense attorney!"

"Even in the midst of our current pandemic, Mr. Marshall not only talked me through the process honestly but walked with me the whole way through it in a very timely manner. I had looked around locally for an attorney that would fight for me as if it were themselves and I am very satisfied with the outcome. Mr. Marshall and his team are nothing but professional and I would recommend him to anyone who is seeking an attorney to fight for them wholeheartedly."

"Bradley Marshall was able to help me turn a reckless driving into defective equipment within a week of hiring him. The best lawyer I’ve ever dealt with and if I ever have traffic court again he’s gonna be the first one I call."
