Frank Bradshaw is a 2003 graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler School of business and is a 2006 graduate of Campbell Law School. Since graduating from law school Bradshaw has practiced law at the law firm of Warrick and Bradshaw, P.A. in Clinton, North Carolina. Bradshaw also resides in Clinton with his wife, Alison, who is a 2007 graduate of Campbell Law School.
Bradshaw practices in various areas of civil law but primarily focuses his attention on family law—including child custody, support, alimony, equitable distribution, etc.—as well as juvenile law. In addition to his private practice, Bradshaw serves as the contract attorney for the Sampson County Child Support Enforcement Agency and the Sampson County Department of Social Services. One of his duties as the attorney for the Sampson County Department of Social Services is to advise the Department in areas related to juvenile abuse, neglect, and dependency law. Bradshaw also represents the Department at the trial and appellate levels, arguing weekly in the district court and frequently representing the Department before the North Carolina Court of Appeals and occasionally the North Carolina Supreme Court. Bradshaw approached former Dean Melissa Essary about offering the Juvenile Abuse, Neglect, and Dependency course to students of Campbell Law School after repeatedly observing newly graduated law students being appointed to abuse, neglect, and dependency cases without any formal background or training in this very specific area of law. Bradshaw currently teaches Juvenile Abuse, Neglect, and Dependency law with hopes that the course will provide students with a fundamental understanding of both the legal requirements and the practical realities of practicing within this area.
Practicing law in a small town has allowed Bradshaw to fully embrace community involvement. Bradshaw is the former president and a current member of the Clinton-Sampson Rotary Club, the former vice chairman of the Sampson County Tourism Development Authority, the Treasurer of the Sampson County Bar Association, the Secretary of the Sampson County History Museum, and has served on additional boards and committees.
