-- Attorney Bradley A. Waldrop has recently joined the legal team at criminal defense law firm Taylor & Taylor in St. Augustine, Fla. The attorney brings to the firm a well-rounded professional background that includes managing his own general law practice and serving as a prosecutor for the State Attorney’s Office. His varied experience allows him to approach criminal defense cases using multiple perspectives.
Waldrop started his career as an attorney in 2006 by serving as a prosecutor for the State Attorney’s Office in the Seventh Judicial District in Palatka and St. Augustine, Florida. With the title of assistant state attorney, he managed a criminal docket that included more than 200 open felony cases at any given time. He prosecuted 25 jury trials related to crimes that included homicide, child sex crimes, drug trafficking, robbery, burglary and DUI. The attorney served as co-chair on the Morgan Leppert murder case, which gained attention as a case in which the defendant—a teenage girl—became the youngest female in Florida’s prison system.
During Waldrop’s time with the State Attorney’s Office, his responsibilities also included lecturing local law enforcement on the topic of citizens’ rights during criminal investigations, as well as helping develop training materials for new attorneys in his local judicial circuit.
In early 2011, Waldrop started his own private practice, The Law Office of Brad Waldrop, Inc. in St. Augustine, Fla. Through his general law practice, he handled cases related to criminal defense, appeals, family law, civil claims and estate planning. In August of this year, he joined Taylor & Taylor, a criminal defense law firm that serves clients who are facing criminal charges in a variety of areas.
Waldrop, who is from St. Augustine, aims to provide each client the personal attention and the respect he or she deserves. His goal is also to provide aggressive representation that will lead to the best possible outcomes for his clients. As a prosecutor, his philosophy was always to do the right thing. As a criminal defense attorney, he now aims to hold prosecutors to that very same standard.
The attorney earned his law degree from Florida State University College of Law in 2006 and his bachelor’s degree in English from Flagler College in 2002. He obtained his bar membership from the State of Florida in September 2006, and he is also a member of the Putnam County Bar Association.
