Brad Shipley

Law Practice:
Mr. Shipley is an Associate with the firm. His practice is concentrated mainly in professional liability defense.

Biographical Information:
Mr. Shipley's whole life was spent in preparation to be a litigator. He developed a love of strategic thinking at an early age, and competed at a high level in organized athletic and intellectual competitions throughout his early life. While he has come to appreciate the tremendous value that an attorney can provide clients by facilitating a favorable negotiated resolution, his background in athletics and strategy games has provided him with a comfort level in the adversarial process which means that, like all the attorneys at John H. Cotton and Associates, he is well-prepared and eager to see a case through to verdict and beyond if necessary.

In addition to having successfully resolved cases through both negotiation and motion practice, Mr. Shipley is proud to have served as second chair in the firm’s defense of two resident physicians which resulted in a jury verdict in favor of both of the firm’s clients after a short deliberation.

In his free time, Mr. Shipley enjoys exploring the Southwestern United States, Cooking, Skiing, Tennis, and Poker.
