Brad Gilmer has obtained numerous jury verdicts for his clients over the course of his career. With his wide-ranging trial experience, he primarily represents health care providers in professional negligence suits. This includes hospitals, long term care facilities, drug and alcohol rehabilitation institutions, physicians, dentists, and other licensed health care professionals. He has also represented medical device manufacturers in product liability matters. Additionally, Brad has vast experience in the representation of business and individuals in premises liability, lease disputes, and other commercial litigation.

Prior to joining the team at Harris Shelton, Brad worked at Domico Kyle from 2001-2013, the Hardison Law Firm from 2013-2017, and Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell and Berkowitz from 2017-2019.

Brad now serves his clients at Harris Shelton by finding practical solutions for complex problems. He approaches each situation by understanding the evidence and believes that it is important to fully investigate the facts from the beginning of the lawsuit. By understanding the complete set of facts at an early stage, he can properly choreograph each step of the litigation with his clients.

Having been raised on a farm, Brad is now an avid gardener and a member of the Cooper-Young Garden Club.  He also enjoys volunteering at Shelby County Juvenile Court.  He and his wife, Sarah, are supporters of the local arts and love the Memphis Grizzlies.
