 About Paul

Issues faced by Paul Bradford’s clients in today’s economy don’t faze this lawyer. After all, Paul helped his clients survive during the late 1980s and early 1990s, one of the toughest periods in Texas banking history. A recent law school graduate at the time, Paul began his practice at Harris, Finley & Bogle during a period of trial by fire. He believes the experience made him a tougher and more insightful banking lawyer.

Today, Paul represents numerous regional and national banks with his banking and oil and gas knowledge, primarily on secured oil and gas lending and commercial lending.

His community involvement includes serving as director of the Tarrant County Housing Partnership, Inc., and as member of Downtown Fort Worth, Inc. Outside of professional responsibilities, Paul spends time with his wife and three young children and is a fan of University of Texas football.
