Derek Bradford - 2016 Leading Lawyer

Derek Bradford Named A 2016 Leading Lawyer

CHICAGO (December 2016) – Derek Bradford, founding partner of Bradford & Gordon, LLC, was honored as a 2016 Leading Lawyer by the Law Bulletin Publishing Company, publisher of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.  Bradford earned this distinction by being among those lawyers most often recommended by their peers.  

The 2016 Leading Lawyers list is the result of the Law Bulletin’s contact with thousands of lawyers in Illinois, who are each mailed surveys that ask which of their peers they believe comprise the top lawyers within their respective region or area of law.  Less than five percent of all lawyers licensed to practice within the state of Illinois are chosen for this honor.

Bradford has successfully litigated cases involving valuations of closely-held corporations, complex financial issues including tax issues, maintenance, paternity, child support, custody, and visitation issues. Bradford has been recognized by the Chicago Lawyer Magazine as one of the top “40 Attorneys Under 40.”  He is also a frequent lecturer for both the Chicago Bar Association and for the Illinois Institute of Continuing Legal Education.  

Bradford & Gordon, LLC is an elite law firm focusing exclusively on divorce, matrimonial and family law.  For more information, please visit
