Also during law school, Bradley worked as an intern for the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals, for Legal Services of Alabama, the Montgomery Office, and participated in the Family Violence Clinic. Bradley was the Vice President of the Federalist Society, a member of Phi Alpha Delta, and a member of the Jones Public Interest Legal Foundation.

Upon passing the Alabama State Bar in 2010, Bradley came back to his hometown and started his own law practice, called the Law Offices of Bradley J. Watson. A year later, Bradley’s wife and high school sweet heart, Gabriela Watson, passed the bar and joined the firm. Together, Bradley and Gabriela are the two partners in Watson and Watson.
In 2013, Bradley was awarded an Indigent Criminal Defense contract for Marshall County, and he served in that capacity until October of 2017. To date, he has handled more than 3,000 felony and misdemeanor cases. During his time as Indigent Contract Counsel, Bradley handled just about every type of felony case imaginable and has extensive experience in Criminal Defense. In October of 2017, Bradley decided to let the criminal contract lapse and not reapply so he could focus on other areas of practice in addition to Criminal Defense. Bradley takes cases in most north Alabama venues, at both the municipal and state level.
