Bradford T. Child  (Partner):   e-mail: btchild@childmarton.com>LinkedIn profile
Bradford T. Child, Esq.

Bradford T. Child has been practicing law since 1980, concentrating in personal injury, property damage, insurance “bad faith” litigation, and general civil matters.

Mr. Child is skilled in high-stakes litigation and has won all of the twenty-plus cases he has tried to verdict.  He has tried cases ranging from personal injury, wrongful discharge, and product liability disputes to inverse condemnation and business insurance “bad faith” suits.   He has also successfully represented clients in high-profile cases, including the San Bernardino train derailment and pipeline explosion in which he disproved the determination of NTSB investigators and established that his client was not liable for the pipeline explosion.

In one of his most well-known cases, Mr. Child successfully petitioned the California Supreme Court to review and reverse the Court of Appeal's decision in Employers Mutual Liability Insurance Company of Wisconsin v. Tutor Saliba Corp., (1998) 17 Cal.4th 632. In the trial of that case, Mr. Child had defeated the workers’ compensation carrier’s claim for reimbursement of compensation benefits paid to an injured worker.  He then sought attorneys’ fees pursuant to a construction contract between the employer and his client.  The Supreme Court reversed the trial and appellate court's refusal to award attorney's fees and issued its decision in favor of Mr. Child’s client.

Mr. Child graduated from the University of the Pacific with a B.A. in 1977 and earned his J.D. in 1980 at the McGeorge School of Law, where he was selected for the law review by the Pacific Law Journal.  He has been admitted to the Minnesota and State Bar of California since 1980 and 1981, respectively. He is admitted to practice before the federal courts in the Central and Northern Districts of California system, and is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates and the Los Angeles County Bar Association.

Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1954, Mr. Child resides in Pasadena with his wife and two children.
