Brad represents primarily small businesses, and so he practices primarily in the areas of law that small businesses need. As a practical matter, Brad helps companies form their businesses, deal with employees, draft and review contracts, and file or defend lawsuits when needed. Brad helps his clients on the “litigation” side of the law as well as on the “business” side.

Brad has been rated as “AV” (preeminent) by his peers at Martindale-Hubbell. This is the highest possible rating.

Before opening his practice in the East Valley in 1998, Brad practiced for several years at two large firms in downtown Phoenix: Jennings, Strouss & Salmon, PLC and Bryan Cave LLP. Brad graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in International Relations from Brigham Young University. He received his law degree with academic honors from the University of Chicago. Because his practice has a substantial litigation component, Brad has spent considerable time in court. Brad has represented clients in numerous jury trials in Superior Court, before the Arizona Court of Appeals, Arizona Supreme Court, and Federal District Court. Brad has also appeared with clients before various Justice Courts, administrative tribunals, and in many arbitrations and mediations.

Brad also advises his clients on how to structure their businesses, how to maintain corporate and LLC records, how to negotiate and draft contracts, how to get their money if bills go unpaid, how to deal with employees, and how to manage their legal risk—all with an eye toward avoiding litigation if at all possible.

Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

How did you build a successful practice?
Sometimes I wonder that too. I never really tried to build my practice. I just tried to take care of my clients. They have built it for me by referring their friends and staying loyal as they have grown.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Lawyers should be able to explain to their clients what is going on, in regular English. Whether it’s a question about a bill, or how a case will be conducted, or a disappointing ruling—the lawyer should be able to communicate so that clients are comfortable about what it going on. Accountability is key.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
Usually, the best way to use a free phone consultation is to figure out a framework for moving forward. Often it’s best to schedule a meeting to talk about strategy and how to be most efficient with legal fees.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
At Denton Peterson we spend a lot of time thinking about how to be efficient with our legal fees. Lawyers are expensive! They should be careful that every minute they spend for a client is purposeful and goal-oriented. And we keep our clients advised of what’s going on—in easy-to-understand language.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Often my clients come to me because they’re tangled up in a really serious problem. We work together to minimize that problem and get to the best result—even if a complete win isn’t possible. The best part of my job is when clients tells me, after the case is over, that I really helped them. I keep my thank-you notes and emails in a special file and look at them when I’m having a frustrating day.
