One local attorney levels the playing field for his clients.
Before becoming a lawyer, Bradley J. Egenberg was first a real estate developer. He said he owes his success as a trial attorney to this experience because he started from the ground up instead of sitting behind a desk billing clients. As a real estate developer at Egenberg and Sons Construction and Renovation, L.L.C., Egenberg learned about tax, construction, business, banking and insurance — and now he uses that information to help the little guy fight against the corporate giants. After graduating from Tulane University with a Bachelors of Arts degree in English, he served in the military before returning to his alma mater to earn his Juris Doctor in 2004. In 2005, he started his own firm, Egenberg, APLC.
“As your attorney, I only get paid when you get paid,” Egenberg says. “This dynamic levels the playing field between our clients and their Goliath opponents. Too many times a case becomes a contest between which party can afford to pay their lawyer for a longer duration. Stamina shouldn’t be the deciding factor.”
Egenberg, APLC, handles a variety of legal matters, including but not limited to personal injury, criminal defense and property damage. Providing the high-quality representation to see a case from start to finish, Egenberg, APLC, has earned a stellar reputation serving clients throughout the state of Louisiana and the Gulf Coast region.
“By the time people realize that they need an attorney, they have already been wounded — literally or figuratively,” Egenberg says. “I am a lawyer that carries my clients through the litigation, not one that asks that his client carry him, his billable rate, his overhead and his briefcase too. Justice should not be about who has the deeper pocket. We are not afraid to face the Goliath opponents, while defending the Davids.”
Egenberg is committed to fighting for a client’s rights — whether it is defending him or her against serious criminal charges in Federal and State Court, forcing an insurer to live up to their obligations or assisting in civil litigation. “I enjoy the personal aspect and the strategic thinking that my practice demands — and counseling clients to identify and make smart decisions that are not always apparent at first glance,” Egenberg says.
Involved in the community, Egenberg has been given public workshops to provide current and specific legal information for the construction industry and small business owners on reviewing and negotiating contracts, securing banking, bonding and insurance, how to maintain compliance, employee law and collections. He is a life member of Million Dollar Advocates Forum and a member of the National Trial Lawyers.
When asked what advice he would give to those looking for legal representation, Egenberg says, “I always tell people, if you are in a dispute or facing legal issues, do not delay in contacting an attorney. Evidence can disappear; new issues can emerge; and witnesses have been known to forget. At our office, we offer free consultations so there is no reason to delay.”
As for his personal life, when Egenberg is not lawyering, he is staying in shape with a daily workout at a Crossfit gym and weekly yoga classes at Reyne Studios. “I served in the army (tank corps), but now I only march for my Mardi Gras krewe — Krewe Delusion,” he says. “As for entertainment, I am a season ticket holder for the Pelicans and I love to play chess and keep a board ready in my office, in case anyone wants to challenge me to a match.”
