An Illinois Criminal Lawyer Who Knows the Law – and the Area

Kerry Bradford comes to The Prior Law Firm, P.C. after a stellar academic career capped by her graduating cum laude from law school in January 2016.

While in law school, she was placed on the Dean’s List and made Honor Roll every term, and she received Certificate of Merit awards for Trial Skills and Property II. Additionally, she participated in her law school’s study abroad program, studying International Law, International Business Law, and European Union Law at Oxford University in England.

While she may be the newest addition to the firm, Bradford is quite familiar with Bloomington and the surrounding area. She grew up here and graduated from Normal Community West High School in 2007. This area knowledge is invaluable when dealing with criminal cases because she understands the community, the general attitudes of the people here, and how the various powers-that-be in the area operate.

The Compassion You Want in a Bloomington Defense Attorney, the Drive and Skill You Need to Handle Your Charge

After high school, Kerry attended Illinois State University, where she double majored in philosophy and political science and graduated in 2011. At ISU, Bradford was not only actively involved in the local community, she also participated in International Student Volunteers (ISV). Her involvement with that organization allowed her to travel to Ecuador, where she worked to teach children, build and maintain community buildings, and help with environment restoration.

Once she completed her externship and passed the bar exam in February 2016, Bradford was hired on at The Prior Law Firm, P.C., where she focuses on DUI and criminal law. She is meticulous and driven, with an in-depth understanding of Illinois law and a passion for protecting the rights of regular citizens.

With Bradford on your team, you can rest assured that no legal stone will remain unturned, and every possible option to help you beat your charges will be thoroughly examined.
