Brad Rutledge has shown the ability to present the issues and arguments in some of our largest and most complex cases in a clear and persuasive manner while also possessing the fortitude to avoid getting distracted or buried by obstacles or the volume of information involved in such cases. He believes these traits can be traced to his work history prior to entering the legal field, where he served for a number of years as a field engineer for a nationally renowned general contractor building state-of-the-art, large-scale hospitals and medical research centers. Brad has parlayed that experience into construction defect and job site injury cases where he is able to use his technical knowledge and understanding of issues and relationships unique to construction projects to the client’s advantage. Brad has been involved in a wide range of cases outside of the construction industry as well, including products liability, breach of contract, commercial disputes, wrongful death, and personal injury lawsuits. He has represented clients of all sizes, from small businesses to multi-national companies. He has gained valuable trial experience, such as in a multi-million dollar breach of contract dispute, he has also participated in discovery, pretrial motions, and post-verdict briefings. He has found success in evidentiary battles, summary judgment arguments and in erasing a multi-million dollar jury verdict.
Prior to joining Kane Russell Coleman & Logan PC, Brad attended South Texas College of Law where he graduated summa cum laude and served as a Note & Comment Editor for the South Texas Law Review. In that time, he interned with Judge David Hittner of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas and Justice Bill Boyce of the Texas Court of Appeals for the Fourteenth District. These roles provided him the opportunity to see some of what does and does not work in a courtroom by observing numerous jury trials and discussing the tactics and rulings with the judges.
