Brad works primarily with our Family Law and Criminal Defense clients but will often assist on complex employment law cases where a team effort is required.
A graduate of Northview High School and University of West Florida, he received his Juris Doctorate from Belmont University in Nashville, TN. He joined the firm soon after and has become a major part of our Divorce and Child Custody cases. Brad is very passionate about his clients and appreciates being able to ease the burden of a client’s legal situation with his knowledge of case law.
“Our clients trust us with very serious issues that many times involve not only their finances, but also their livelihood,” he says. “This is something we take very personally and strive to provide the best possible results. Knowing that you have helped a client navigate the stress and difficulty of the legal system is invaluable.”
He enjoys being a part of the Law Office of J.J. Talbott because of the “laid back and welcoming feel of the firm.” He notes that J.J. and Carrie strive to create a welcoming environment for families and that it’s not uncommon for former clients and their family members to stop by just to say ‘Hello.’
Brad lives in Pensacola with his wife Christy, who is a local elementary school teacher, and their three-year-old son Colin. Brad is a huge sports fan and you’ll find him at Bayview Park or attending Blue Wahoos’ baseball games when he’s not triathlon training with Tri Gulf Coast on Pensacola Beach. Brad also loves travel and frequently returns to his favorite city in the world, Nashville, TN.
Travis earned his Bachelor of Science from the University of Central Florida in 2009 before attending the University of Florida Levin College of Law. While in law school Travis was recognized numerous times for his outstanding research, writing, and advocacy skills, including earning multiple Book awards, which students earn by achieving the top grade in the class. As a law student, Travis clerked for Stiles, Taylor & Grace, a workers’ compensation insurance defense firm, and for the United States Attorney’s office.
Upon earning his Juris Doctor from UF, Travis went to work for Levin Papantonio’s mass tort division. While there, Travis pursued complex litigation cases across the county for 4 years, successfully representing plaintiffs in products liability cases involving the products Benicar, Invokana, and Essure, as well as businesses that suffered economic damages as a result of the BP Oil Spill.
In 2017, seeking to build his local practice, Travis came aboard at the Law Office of J.J. Talbott. In his own words: “I knew that working with JJ would allow me to focus my practice on the local community. Meeting face to face with my clients, and getting to interact with the folks who need my help on a personal level is what drives me.” Travis now handles personal injury, wage and hour, social security, and worker’s compensation claims.
Travis lives here in Pensacola with his girlfriend, Crystal Johnson, and their 4 dogs: Julius, Roger, Snoopy, and Penny.
Outside of work, Travis volunteer’s as much as possible for local legal clinics where he provides pro bono services to members of our community. He also frequently serves as a Big Brother for Big Brothers Big Sisters of NWFL. In his free time, Travis loves being active, including hiking, martial arts, and team sports.
