JEFFREY D. BRADLEY is an attorney who has practiced throughout the States of Washington. His practice has been primarily centered on litigation for both plaintiffs and defendants. He has litigated cases involving personal injuries; automobile accidents; premises liability claims; timber and water trespass claims; dog bite and boating claims; construction defect litigation; and civil rights and employment cases.
Jeff is admitted to practice in all state and federal courts throughout Washington, and in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit and has tried cases in Superior and District Courts throughout the State of Washington and in Federal Court for the Western District of Washington. He is a member of the Washington State Bar Association, and a former member of the Oregon State Bar Association, where he practiced for several years and was involved in trials at the Circuit Court level.
Jeff initially attended Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, prior to returning to Washington where he earned his B.A. degree from the Evergreen State College. He worked for the radio stations (WBOR, KAOS) and newspapers (The Bowdoin Orient and The Cooper Point Journal) at both colleges and was a member of the Student Executive board while at Bowdoin College. After spending a year as a radio DJ at KGY in Olympia, he earned his J.D. degree from Northwestern School of Law, Lewis & Clark College with a Certificate in Environmental Law. While at law school, Jeff clerked for Federal Magistrate Dennis J. Hubel in Portland, Oregon.
Beyond his legal practice, Jeff enjoys music, having been a season ticket holder with Seattle Opera for twenty years, movies and the theater (he and his partner have had tickets with ArtsWest in Seattle for over a decade), and walking in his neighborhood parks in Tacoma.
Jeff grew up in Olympia and was first attracted to the study and practice of law through a combination of events in his life. He was the defendant in a case involving an auto accident when he was in high school which went through arbitration and eventually a jury trial. He was found not to be the cause of the accident by the jury, thanks in part to the excellent representation he received from his attorney. This experience gave him an insight not only into the workings of the law and trials, but also into what it is like to be a client and a layperson dealing with the law. After high school, Jeff was fortunate enough to take a year-long course on Constitutional Law while an undergraduate at Bowdoin College that was taught as a law school class. It was this course and the fun he had learning about how the law is formed and works that cemented Jeff’s desire to become an attorney and practice law.
