Bradford Hendrickson



Before joining McCathern, Bradford worked at successful trial boutique firms where he represented a variety of clients—both as plaintiff and defendant—in complex commercial litigation and business disputes for international corporate clients, as well as oil & gas litigation, catastrophic personal injury, product liability defects, maritime law, and bankruptcy matters. In recognition of his work, Bradford was selected for inclusion in the 2017 and 2018 Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ list. Now, Bradford brings his passion and aggressive advocacy skills to McCathern and provide the best representation for his clients and their interests by serving as their voice in the courtroom.

Bradford was born in New Jersey, but grew up in Colorado before relocating to Texas, where he graduated from the University of Texas and received his law degree from the University of Houston Law Center. While in law school, Bradford stayed busy, serving as the executive editor of the Houston Journal of International Law, interning with the Honorable Elsa Alcala at the Texas First Court of Appeals, and gaining practical experience while working for several local Houston law firms. Bradford was also in the National Order of the Barristers and won the Byron McCoy Advocacy Scholarship. After law school, Bradford was invited to clerk for the Bankruptcy Court of the Western District of Texas and had the privilege to learn under the tutelage of the Honorable Leif M. Clark and the Honorable John C. Akard.

Bradford is admitted to practice law in Texas. He is also licensed to practice before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, as well as the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern, Northern, Southern, and Western Districts of Texas.  He has been admitted to practice pro hac vice in both state and federal courts throughout the country.  He is also a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, the Houston Bar Association, the Texas Young Lawyers Association, the Houston Young Lawyers Association, and serves on the Advisory Board for the Houston Journal of International Law.

When he’s not preparing or trying a case, Bradford enjoys experimenting in his kitchen, watching movies, and alternating between cheering for and yelling at the Texas Longhorns and his hometown Denver Broncos.
