  • Great to work with! I have used Attorney Tengler multiple times over the last 3-4 years with a few different issues. One thing I love about Brad is that he always thinks about the best outcome for everyone involved and not just winning in whatever way possible. There were a few times where I had an idea about what to do and Brad had me consider a few things first which I hadn't thought about pertaining to what was in my children's best interest. That meant a lot to me. I fully trust Brad and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.

  • Step parent adoption

    My husband and I met with Bradley and hired him right after our initial consultation for our step parent adoption. He expressed in our first meeting that this was his favorite type of case, and that really showed throughout the process. It went as fast as any court case could. We went in never having a lawyer before and didn’t know what exactly to expect. Emails and phone calls were answered timely. He or Ryan would follow up with us after a court appearance that didn’t need to be attended. I never had a negative encounter with anyone in the office. Worked court dates around our schedules. If we are to ever need a lawyer again we will definelty be using Bradley and his team.

    Right now I am being represented by Bradley Tengler's firm in a bitter divorce that came at me out of the blue.

  • A Man you can Trust

    Not many attorneys make me feel relieved when I see them coming but this one does. I finally feel like that there is at least one person who seems to understand and therefore I don't feel so alone. For a former military man like me, Brad is the type of person with whom I would not have minded sharing a foxhole with. He makes me feel that no matter what, he will always have my back.

  • If you have a bad opinion about lawyers, this one will change your mind.

    He was so compassionate, positive, and helpful that he made what I hope was the most difficult part of my life so much easier. He was knowledgable and encouraging, and explained things until I understood them. On court hearing dates, he told me what was going to happen and who was going to do what, so there were never any surprises. The outcome of my case was very positive, which I attribute to his knowledge, experience, and reputation in this community. You will not be sorry to have him as an attorney, but the other side will be sorry that he is your attorney.
