Security guard defense depends on sound advice

At Bradley, Gmelich & Wellerstein LLP, we pride ourselves on being proactive. We employ preventive measures with our security clients to help them avoid litigation altogether. Our business law attorneys review client operations, with a focus on policies, procedures and best practices. Our many years of experience tell us that preventing a lawsuit is far less expensive than litigating one. However, when our clients face actions, claims of negligence and/or lawsuits, our attorneys have the trial experience and are ready and able to provide aggressive defense.

Security guard defense representation

Our first goal is usually to eliminate the case before it goes to trial. But if dismissing the case before trial doesn’t happen, the Bradley & Gmelich team is ready to litigate the case before the courts. Our team of highly skilled attorneys have years of experience representing and winning cases for our clients.

Talented appellate lawyers drive our success

Our litigators benefit from the advice of our appellate lawyers, who often work in partnership with our trial attorneys when it appears that a matter might proceed on appeal. Our appellate lawyers have a strong background in general civil litigation, including security guard defense. Consequently, they are able to help draft motions for summary judgment with an eye on the appellate ramifications before the matter is even heard by the trial court. The depth and range of our experience increase efficiency in our pretrial and trial work. Our appellate attorneys are always available to assist our trial counsel, whether before, during or after trial. If an appeal becomes necessary, our appellate attorneys provide clients with skilled representation. Our success on appeal has won our firm an enviable reputation.
