Since 1983, Bradford Kessler has passionately defended each and every client against criminal charges in numerous state and federal jurisdictions.

Never known to shy away from trial under even the most challenging of facts, Mr. Kessler has defended complex, multi-million-dollar white collar federal cases and over two dozen state cases involving the death penalty which he tried to verdict, as well as hundreds of other serious felony trials.

Mr. Kessler takes pride in mentoring young attorneys as well as kids in trouble and, along with his brother, trains some of the best young judo fighters in the country.

Whether participating in international rule of law programs in Mexico, Russia, and the Czech Republic, or teaching trial advocacy courses in universities across the country, Mr. Kessler always finds a chance to continue his own education through the wonderful opportunities the practice of law presents.
