My family hired Brad Polk to represent me in a probation violation case from out of state. Brad was a terrific lawyer. He was responsive to my family’s phone calls and gave them updates about me. He also was very well prepared for court. He listened to me and asked lots of questions. I swear I could see him thinking and putting things together as I spoke. My case was dismissed and I went home. Brad and his team followed up with me days later. It was a great experience.

Raymond Tarlton is an amazing attorney. He was professional and very accommodating. I was always able to reach him for any questions I had, unlike other attorneys who take days to respond. He’s confident in his knowledge of the law, not to mention he won us the case! I can’t thank him enough and would easily recommend him to anyone with a legal matter. Thanks again Raymond!
I had a car accident and was recommended the lawyer Brad Polk. The truth is that from the first day I felt very comfortable, because they have Spanish-speaking staff and that helped me a lot to understand what the process would be like of my case. I was always informed of the whole process. I was calm to see with what seriousness and professionalism. Brad Polk fought for me to have a very good reward for my accident, Thank you, Brad!
