Brad grew up in Boiling Springs, SC, home of Gamecock great Phil Petty, and attended Winthrop University where he studied political science and history. Brad spent a year after college working at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center and a local law firm before embarking on a legal career. Brad excelled in law school, graduating in the top 10 percent of his class, and upon graduation worked for two years as a staff attorney at the South Carolina Supreme Court. Brad came on as an associate with Baker Ravenel & Bender in 2004, where he had also clerked during law school. He became a partner in the firm in 2009.

Brad’s interests outside the office, besides entertaining his wife and chasing his two young children, are watching movies, playing golf, reading, and trying to keep up with what is going on around the world. Other hobbies include pretending to understand quantum physics and the origins of the universe, and obsessing over all things Gamecock sports-related.
