Galfand Berger is pleased to welcome our newest Associate Attorney, Brad Smith to the firm.
Brad joined Galfand Berger last year as a law clerk and became an associate with our firm after graduating from the Temple University James E. Beasley School of Law.
Early on, we knew that Brad embraced our firm’s mission of helping injured workers, consumers and individuals. While he was still a law student, Brad wrote an award-winning essay titled “Pennsylvania’s Mental Lapse: A History of Pennsylvania’s Treatment of Mental Disabilities Caused by Mental Stress in Workers’ Compensation.” The essay discussed how
Pennsylvania law treats workers who suffer mental injuries as a result of traumatic events at work. Brad won the Grand Prize in the Workers’ Compensation Centennial Essay Contest and was published in The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Centennial: A Narrative and Pictorial Celebration. Quite an auspicious start for a young lawyer committed to workers’ rights!
In his free time, Brad is an avid fan of Philadelphia sports teams. You will often find him at Eagles, Sixers and Phillies games, even after most fans have left the stadium or arena. He’s that dedicated! Hope springs eternal.
