Brad ThiesBrad M. Thies

Phoenix Attorney

Brad was born and raised in a small rural community in Nebraska. After deciding early on he wanted to pursue a legal career, he attended Dana College in Blair, Nebraska, where he obtained degrees in Psychology and Business Management. Following his acceptance to the University of Nebraska, College of Law, he was hired for an internship with a local criminal defense attorney who relied on him to perform all legal research and briefing involving a variety of procedural and constitutional criminal issues. While at the University of Nebraska, College of Law, Brad placed 1st in the Allen Moot Court Competition receiving the award for best brief with the finals of the competition determined by three members of the Nebraska Supreme Court. During his third year of law school, the University of Nebraska, College of Law approved him as a Senior Certified Law Student granting him the ability to practice law under the supervision of a licensed attorney. During that time, Brad attended and participated in numerous hearings and oral arguments in the county and federal trial courts and briefed and argued an appeal in the Nebraska Court of Appeals. Upon graduation from the University of Nebraska, College of Law, Brad relocated to Arizona where he was admitted to practice law in 2001.

Since being admitted to practice in Arizona, Brad has accumulated valuable experience and knowledge in a number of diverse areas of civil litigation. Brad has counseled and represented individuals, small businesses, and large corporate entities in litigation and potential litigation in traditional state and federal court venues, arbitration forums, administrative hearings, as well as the appeals process.

Brad believes quality advocacy and a strong attorney-client relationship are of paramount importance when dealing with contested legal matters that can be stressful, adversarial, and complex. In order to develop and maintain these constructive relationships, Brad’s approach involves working closely with clients to resolve existing issues by offering aggressive, reasonable, and economically feasible solutions, as well as providing advice on the implementation of practices and procedures that will help clients limit potential exposure and future legal disputes. Clients who work with Brad know and trust that he has their best interests in mind when developing strategies to evaluate and resolve legal issues, whether that means early settlement discussions, additional investigation and discovery, dispositive motions to narrow or eliminate issues, or, ultimately, trial or other alternative forms of final adjudication.

Brad enjoys spending time with his family (wife and dogs) and also undertaking the occasional home improvement project to utilize his prior construction experience. Being born and raised in Nebraska, Brad also enjoys college football season and, in particular, cheering on the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
