10/10 highly recommended Mr.Marshall. He and his assistant were very quick to respond and offer help with any questions I had. Mr. Marshall was incredibly professional and made this process very quick and pain-free. I was able to get my ticket dismissed thanks to the advice given and the work done. Although, I hope to not ever get another speeding ticket. I highly recommend and will work with this law office again.

"Bradley helped me with a terrible mistake that I had made and was terrified for the outcome. With his experience and professionalism he helped me get the best possible result for my situation. He was very knowledgeable about different avenues on how to approach my incident. He took the time to check in on me from our first meeting all the way through court and now follows up with me. I would highly recommend his service to anyone."


"I reached out to Brad to represent me in a legal matter that could have resulted in unfavorable circumstances for my professional career. He immediately guided me through the legal process along with my options and possible outcomes. He was organized, professional and knowledgeable. I couldn’t be happier with the results made possible by his legal services."


"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."


"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."
