Mr. Bradley is an attorney who works in the Litigation, Appellate, Family and Estate Planning/Probate groups. When not working with TNS, he serves as a District Court Magistrate Judge in the 13th Judicial District (Logan, Morgan, Kit Carson, Yuma, Phillips, Washington, and Sedgewick counties). In his role on the bench, he has presided over more than 2,500 hearings. While he primarily handles family law matters, he has worked on a wide range of matters (from child support modification to murder in the first degree). Because of his primary role as a magistrate judge, he does not accept work in the 13th judicial district. Mr. Bradley graduated with honors from Notre Dame Law School where he served as the Executive Managing Editor for the Notre Dame Journal Of Law, Ethics & Public Policy. During law school, he worked for judges in both the federal and state court system. After graduation he served as a law clerk to Chief Justice Nathan B. Coats of the Colorado Supreme Court. After Chief Justice Coat’s retirement, Mr. Bradley went into private practice where he focused on family law, probate administration and litigation, and appellate litigation. Since his appointment to the bench, he has cut back significantly on his private practice work but remains available for certain matters (in both a primary counsel and consulting capacity).
