Areas of Law Description
Our practice areas include:
- Employment Law Litigation and Consulting
Our experienced employment litigation lawyers have represented clients in a wide variety of issues, including administrative law hearings and investigations, as well as fully litigated lawsuits. Because of their extensive litigation experience and knowledge of employment law, our attorneys do not hesitate to take on a large case involving complicated issues and multiple employees.
- Premises Liability
We pride ourselves on being proactive. We employ preventive measures with our clients to help them avoid litigation altogether. We review client operations, with a focus on policies and procedures and best business practices. Our many years of experience tell us that preventing a lawsuit is far less expensive than litigating one.
- Administrative Law
The attorneys at Bradley & Gmelich are skilled representatives of business clients before administrative bodies. Our attorneys represent clients in all industries before the state and federal agencies governing the operation of some portion of the business.
- Business Contract Litigation
From our main office in Glendale, the business attorneys at Bradley & Gmelich offer comprehensive and aggressive litigation services to business clients throughout California. We represent a wide array of businesses.

Our business attorneys at Bradley & Gmelich represent private security companies, alarm businesses, Private Patrol Operators (PPO), electronic surveillance companies, security system monitoring operations, executive protection specialists, and all private security-related entities.
- General Civil Litigation
Many of these suits can be won – and should be won – prior to trial. In our law and motion department, we develop legal arguments geared toward the crafting of a tight, well-reasoned motion for summary judgment. We have an outstanding record of developing successful motion work, employing such defenses as lack of causation, assumption of the risk, waiver and release, and lack of any legally enforceable duty of care.

Bradley & Gmelich has extensive experience investigating and litigating insurance fraud claims and utilizes aggressive litigation strategies to obtain outstanding results, either through early dismissals of cases or defense verdicts at trial or binding arbitration.
- Personal/Commercial Auto Defense
Bradley & Gmelich attorneys are experienced in all aspects of automobile defense claims, whether the claims involve minor impact soft tissue (MIST) injury cases or catastrophic injury and death. The firm’s attorneys have represented clients ranging from individual policy holders to national rental car companies to corporations with fleet vehicles, providing the same thorough investigation and proactive defense strategies regardless of the client.
