Brad Botes is the “Botes” of Bond and Botes. Makes sense, right? A fellow Chicagoan and life-long suffering Cubs’ fan (or was!), Brad is the leader of all of the Bond and Botes affiliated law firms. I met Brad initially due to our Chicago roots and we both have now been in Alabama for over two decades. Brad and I are both licensed to practice law in Illinois and, while we both still do some legal work there, the bulk of our practice is here in the Deep South.

I can’t say enough good things about Brad – he is smart as a whip and retains a great deal of knowledge. Beyond that, there is no more compassionate and empathetic person that I know. If you need someone on your side, this is the person that you want. For the people that know Brad, you know exactly what I mean. Brad is also an involved family man with a wonderful wife, Kaye, and three great kids. Humble and gracious, I am sure that, even reading this introduction, Brad would blush and not like it. He is all about serving others rather than himself. I am fortunate that our Chicago connection brought this great friend and law partner into my life. Thanks for listening.
