APPEALS, WRITS, AND COLLATERAL ATTACK

Prior to relocating to the east coast, Bradley worked with the Appellate Division of the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office.  There, he provided extensive support to both the Habeas Litigation Unit and numerous practitioners at various stages of Appeal.  He drafted and filed multiple Returns in response to Petitions for Writs of Habeas Corpus, Informal Responses, Supplemental Briefs, and Respondent Briefs.  He is well-versed in vehicles of collateral attack at the state-level as well as interlocutory review.

Further, Bradley considers himself to be uniquely knowledgeable in the history of prosecutorial pre-trial discovery duties and obligations as he spent considerable time on this topic both practically (in the habeas setting) and scholastically.  See Were California Prosecutors ever in Compliance with Brady?  - A Prosecutor's Pre-trial Discovery Duties Prior to the "Victims' Bill of Rights"


TORT LITIGATION AND ADMIRALTY

Prior to and during law school, Bradley worked for a plaintiff-side national legal service provider representing retailers.  There he dealt directly with corporate clients in providing pre-litigation support in the recovery of damages from those accused of embezzlement or external theft of corporate assets.  He created best practices for the company's legal analysts and client internal investigation teams, he served as the company's business intelligence analyst, and drafted all corporate collateral on client data security and breach mitigation protocol. Finally, Bradley managed a state-by-state research project which resulted in the drafting of proposed legislation on tort reform.  These efforts are further reflected in an editorial publication to which he is a contributing author. See "A Reasonable Rant on Civil Recovery".
