Mr. Fulton graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Washington State University in 1985 and from the University of Washington School of Law in 1988.

Brad is admitted to practice by the Washington State Bar Association, Oregon Bar Association (via reciprocity), United State District Courts, Western and Eastern Districts, United States Court of Appeals (Ninth Circuit), and the United States Supreme Court.

Mr. Fulton dedicates much time to bettering his profession, having served on the Board of Governors of the Washington State Association for Justice (WSAJ)—formerly the Washington State Trial Lawyers Association (WSTLA)—a 2,600 member volunteer plaintiff’s lawyer association, since 1995 and served as the WSAJ President during 2009–2010.

Mr. Fulton has also been invited to speak at and/or chair more than 30 Continuing Legal Education seminars on various legal topics, including in the states of Washington, Oregon, New Mexico, Idaho, and Quebec, Canada.

Mr. Fulton was also named a “Rising Star” by Washington Law & Politics magazine in both 1999–2000 and 2000–2001 and as a “Super Lawyer” (top 4–5% of lawyers in the state as voted by one’s peers) by the same publication each year 2001 through present. In 2006–2007, Mr. Fulton was also voted by his peers as being among the “Top 40” Washington “Super Lawyers” in the personal injury field.

Brad also received the highest possible rating from Martindale-Hubbell, an “AV” rating in 1998, a rating again based upon evaluations by one’s peers, and also carries a 10/10 rating with AVVO.

Mr. Fulton has also served the larger legal community via his involvement in several legal publications, serving as the primary editor of (1) the WSTLA Automobile Accident Litigation Desk book (1999), an 1,800 page, two-volume “how to” manual for the automobile accident lawyer sold throughout Washington and Oregon, and authored or co-authored six separate chapters in the publication; (2) the WSTLA Pleadings and Motions Practice CD-ROM Handbook (2003), a compilation of motions and pleadings used regularly by personal injury and plaintiff’s lawyers, which is also sold around the state (and also contributed approximately 40 forms to the same); and (3) the WSAJ Motor Vehicle Collision Litigation Deskbook (2010), an update to the original WSTLA Auto Deskbook. In the latest publications, Mr. Fulton also authored a new chapter on Minor Settlements. Brad also served as editor of the WSTLA/WSAJ Trial News, WSAJ’s monthly publication which goes out to all WSAJ members, judges around the state, and to many legislators, and has had more than 40 articles published in this state-wide publication.

Finally, Brad is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, an organization whose membership is limited to lawyers who have secured $1,000,000(+) results for their clients.

Brad resides in Seattle with his wife, Danielle, and two children, Hunter and Lauren.

In his spare time, Brad enjoys volunteering on behalf of WSAJ, playing golf, attending Seattle Mariners games and other sporting events, playing recreational softball, participating in fantasy football, hunting, and actively participating in the lives of his children.
