Bradford H. Lamb

Brad enjoys spending time with his wife and three teenagers and has enjoyed coaching youth football and basketball during the past several years. He maintains a busy legal practice, but is an avid fly fisherman and in his spare time can be found drifting blue ribbon streams in search of trout and steelhead in his drift boat. Brad also enjoys skiing the slopes and is hopeful that his golf game will improve.
