Bradford L. Atkinson has been providing quality legal service to individuals and families for nearly twenty years.  As a native Texan, he prides himself on his local roots and sense of community.  “I grew up in Montgomery County around the practice of law, and four of my closest family members were also attorneys.  My office is still located in the same building I began my law career in. I share office space with my brother, who is also an attorney. It’s a life-long family tradition for sure.”

About our Office

Bradford L. Atkinson & Associates, PLLC is a family-owned firm, and as such, Mr. Atkinson understands the importance of client relationships and client contact.  His firm uses the latest technology and case management software and is staffed to meet the ever-changing needs of our clients.  The increased use of technology in our firm allows client relationships to be managed in cost-effective way.  However, our firm prides itself on the ability to individualize each case’s management to meet our clients needs.  As a result of the changes that are constantly happening in the legal profession, we strive to stay current with technology to be the most efficient possible for our clients, while continuing to provide the highest quality legal services.

Are you tech-savvy?  Then you will appreciate that our firm has said goodbye to lengthy (and costly) document meetings, shorthand and typewriters and said hello to laptops and tablets to allow for immediate data input.  These technological advancements have allowed us to communicate with our clients and keep them up to date with the latest status information available in their case.

Not so tech-savvy?  That’s ok too.  While technology and efficiency are important to our firm, we also understand the importance of the fax machine, in person meetings, U.S. mail delivery and good-old fashioned letterhead.   Sitting with our clients face to face is part of who we are and we always strive to maintain a true balance between technology and tradition.  So don’t worry, our legal support staff isn’t going anywhere and we still use real paper and file cabinets in our office.
