Biography

Brad C. Holbrook is an attorney who cares about helping clients get from point A to point B in thier lives and navigate all the legal hurdles that might be in the way. He is licensed in both Oregon and California.

"I specialize in personal injury law becasue I know that when a person is injured in an accident, especially seriously injured, s/he needs a very strong advocate to help them with all the legal aspects--and there are many-- while they focus on getting better and/or dealing with events in their life that need immediate and undivided attention. The insurance company will make an injured person think that they don't need an attorney. I believe, while there are well-intended, honorable insurance claims adjusters, you always need to have an experiecned attorney in your corner--as your advocate--in all personal injury claims you are involved in where someone else is at-fault."

The Holbrook Law Firm can help people experiencing a family law matter, such as divorce and/or child custody, and/or the loss of a loved one that requires an estate to be probated. The Holbrook Law Firm helps all that they can, and if we can't help in a particular area of law, we will attempt to find someone who can do a great job for you.

The legal system can be very intimidating--and down-right scary, The Holbrook Law Firm wants to make the process as easy as possible.

Legal Answers
Q. My wife is a cashier at a dept. store . She was grabbed by her head by an autistic young man , accompanied by his mother
A: I am so sorry to hear that this happened to your wife. I hope she is okay, and she was able to get any and all medical treatment that she needed, including use of a counselor. Fortuately, this does not happen too often. There could be some criminal liability, as she was a victim of disoderly conduct, harassment, and/or an assault and battery. And, it is evident that the fact that the man is autistic played a factor/role in this uncivilized behavior. However, no one should tolerate or expect to tolerate this type of behavior and attack. So, it is a case by case on criminal liability, in my opinion. However, the criminala aspect is up to the District Attorney in your county. You would start by calling your local Police Dept. or Sheriff. Has this happened before? Was there something about the interaction with your wife that triggered it? (Does not mean, at all, that she has any blamed whatsoever, but the cause should be determined); and then there could be liability if her employer was aware of this risk and failed to protect her or by the mother of the man and.or the man. The civil remedies available could be for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and even punitive damages to prevent this type of thing from happening to someone else. I hope that your wife is doing well now. Best wishes moving forward. ... Read More
Q. Can a Jane Doe civil action be transfered between federal venues while maintaining Jane's anonymity?
A: Your questions rasie some questions. You mentioned "civil action" without specifically referencing what type of claim it is and why the Vermont has any jursidiction. If you have no ties to Vermont, then you cannot be subjected to personal jurisdiction there unless you consent and/or somehow availed yourself to the state in such a way that it would not be unjust to force you to defend yourself there. It sounds like you might have a lawyer? I would suggest that you find a lawyer who is admitted to the federal court in that state. If the forum is more convenient in Oregon, and there are factors that make it appropriate (accident/injury occurred there, contract signed there, etc), the court would likely grant it. If the move is simply to make the case more difficult on the plaintiff, and Vermont is an appropriate forum, then it might be tough to move it over here. As far as filing a motion to change venue without the other parties knowing it is you, I think that would be hard to do because you would have to serve it on the other side and give them a chance to respond. I hope this guides you, it is tough to provide concrete answers without more details. You'll most likley need to consult with an attorney on this matter. Federal court varies from state court in many ways, and not all attorneys practice in federal court. It has different filing time, and requirments, so find an attorney who can help you in the federal system. I wish you the very best on this matter. ... Read More
Q. I was just given a citation today for a accident I was in last month and the date is incorrect. I live in Oregon.
A: I understand your question to be does the fact the date is wrong on your citation affect whether it is valid? If the date is wrong on the citation, it does not mean the citation is simply going to be thrown out. The officer can amend the citation. There are many defenses to a traffic citation, and you may have a few of them available to you. Being in a accident places you in a more difficult spot to defend a citation when the cause of the accident might be apparent from the scene, such as running over a fire hydrant. You should seek the advice and counsel of an attorney who specializes in traffic citations. The attorney can present you with best approach to your situation. Wish you the very best. ... Read More
