He has represented and advised individual, corporate and institutional owners and developers of commercial real estate at the local, national and international levels.

Once a proficient cyclist and significantly less proficient triathlete, Brad now spends his free time chasing around his kids and nephews, collecting and enjoying (in moderation, of course) fine whiskeys and cigars, and spending time at his house on Lake McQueeney.  Brad now leaves the sports to the truly gifted and enjoys sporting events of all types, especially University of Texas football.
