It is with profound sadness that we announce the death of our team member and friend, Dawn Cushman. Dawn passed away on December 20, 2021.

Dawn practiced law with Bradley, Gmelich & Wellerstein LLP for four years, after a distinguished career practicing law with other firms, including her own firm, since becoming a member of the California Bar in 1979. She was a Certified Appellate Specialist since 2000, a significant distinction reserved for only the most accomplished appellate attorneys in the state. Dawn was also recognized as a Top-Rated Appellate Attorney by Super Lawyers since 2009.

Dawn was active in several professional associations, including the Los Angeles County Bar Association Appellate Courts section, the Association of Southern California Defense Counsel and the Southern California Association for Healthcare Risk Management. She received her Juris Doctor from California Western School of Law in 1979 and her Bachelor of Arts degree from San Diego State University in 1976.

Dawn was an integral part of Bradley, Gmelich & Wellerstein LLP and wrote many outstanding, winning briefs on behalf of our clients. We were fortunate to have her as a member of our BG+W family, and her brilliant mind and positive spirit will be sorely missed.
