Born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida, Brad spent his summers in the mountains of North Carolina. For college he decided to go a bit further north, and graduated from Hampden-Sydney College, earning the highest academic award his senior year for a thesis he wrote on Flannery O’Connor, the noted American novelist, short story writer, and essayist.
After college, Brad received a Masters of Theology from Duke Divinity School. Brad then decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and attend the University of Florida Levin College of Law, graduating in 2007. While in Florida, he focused his practice on guardianships, estate planning, probate and trust administration, and fiduciary litigation. After over a decade of practicing law, the mountains of North Carolina called him back, and he and his wife and five children decided to make the move to be close to his extended family.
Brad is now excited to be with Strauss Attorneys, to continue his estate planning practice and to finally call Hendersonville, North Carolina “home”.
