Bradley Phillips is a New Orleans based attorney practicing both criminal defense and personal injury.  Originally from Pensacola, Florida, Bradley grew up visiting New Orleans with family.  Bradley became a permanent New Orleans resident in 2002, where he attended Loyola University for both undergraduate and law degrees. Following law school in 2010, Bradley started his private practice with his wife Sarah Phillips.  Since then, they have defended over 800 criminal clients and have won over $1.6 million in personal injury settlements throughout Louisiana. 

Bradley is an experienced criminal attorney known for defending high profile cases.  His specialties include murder, armed robberies, gun and weapons charges, sex offenses, and drug distribution.  In 2014, he tried the first “gang racketeering” trial brought by DA Leon Cannizzaro against the “110ers.” Since then, he has been sought out for his expertise in RICO indictments across Louisiana.  When Bradley takes on a client, he believes in a thorough case review and investigation.  This has led to several of his criminal cases, including murder charges, to be thrown out by the district attorney.  Since 2017, he has maintained a contract with the Orleans Parish Public Defender's Office defending indigent clients.  He also enjoys practicing in municipal court handling misdemeanor cases. His specialties include domestic abuse battery, lewd conduct and minor in possession of alcohol.  Bradley enjoys helping local college students and tourists who might have left the city with more than a good time.  He is well known for his successful record fighting DWI and traffic tickets.  In 10 years, he has never pled a client guilty to a traffic ticket. 

Bradley is also an experienced personal injury litigator, having both the knowledge and skill to win high dollar settlements.  In 2020, Phillip's Law settled a rear end car accident for $650,000.  His area of expertise include car and truck accidents.  He is also known for his work with "non typical" cases such as pedestrian and bicycle accidents.   In addition, he is well versed in handling "non typical" insurance companies such as those representing Uber and Lyft.  Bradley believes that each case deserves personal attention and a specific plan for the highest payout.  During a case, Bradley works with the medical providers to make sure the client is receiving the best medical treatment possible.  Knowing that his client is getting the proper medical attention, he is then able to focus on negotiating with the insurance company. Over the years, he has attended hundreds of hours of continuing legal education in the field of personal injury.  Bradley knows all the "tricks" the insurance companies use to get clients to settle for less.  Based on his knowledge and experience, his clients can be confident they are receiving the highest settlement possible.
