Immersed in the healthcare industry, Brad’s practice includes defense of medical malpractice claims, advising clients on regulatory compliance issues, representation of providers in licensing investigations and disciplinary matters, and consulting clients on risk management and patient-care strategies. Brad is an experienced trial lawyer, which includes both first and second-chair jury trial experience in a number of high-risk cases, including a wrongful-death case that was successfully tried to a defense verdict.
Brad works with two of Utah’s largest local integrated healthcare systems, which include general and specialty hospitals, community health centers, urgent care clinics, and nearly 3,000 primary and secondary care physicians.
