Brad Alford


Brad Alford is a criminal defence lawyer and associate at Friedman Mansour LLP.

Before joining Friedman Mansour, Brad articled with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice as a judicial law clerk, working closely with the judiciary to resolve complex legal issues. Brad frequently assisted judges with serious criminal files, including murders, robberies, assaults, DUI’s, and drug charges. From that experience, Brad brings both a formidable talent for legal research and a unique understanding of how judges approach cases, and he uses these tools creatively to achieve the best possible outcomes for his clients.

Brad graduated from the Queen’s University Faculty of Law in 2021, winning multiple course prizes and receiving Dean’s List recognition. Prior to law school, Brad obtained his bachelor’s degree in criminology and criminal justice from Carleton University, graduating with Honours and High Distinction.

Brad pursued practical opportunities beyond the classroom and was an active advocate throughout law school. He was a student caseworker with the Queen’s Prison Law Clinic, where he helped his clients at Collins Bay Institution navigate disciplinary court charges and prepare for parole hearings. He represented Queen’s University at the 2021 Gale Cup criminal law moot and advocated before a panel of Canadian judges for an acquittal to be upheld. He was also a member of the Queen’s Law Journal Editorial Board as a Co-Managing Editor of Submissions.

Brad is a member of the Law Society of Ontario, the Criminal Lawyers’ Association, and the Defence Counsel Association of Ottawa. Brad was called to the Ontario bar in 2022.

Successful Cases


Fady took very good care of me, keeping my best interest in mind and supported me throughout the process. I am very thankful for his help and would absolutely recommend this office and specifically Mr. Mansour.

J. L.

Excellent and precise communications skills. Very clear on what my position was, what the legal actions available were, and what his strategy would be to address the situation. And precise execution. He assured me of my rights and position every step of the way. Made me feel totally comfortable with my rights, and let me continue with my life. Highly recommended.

Fady recently represented me in a legal matter during one of the most difficult periods of my life. From the onset, Fady was professional, supportive and reassured me that he would do all he could to ensure a positive outcome, which was achieved. Thank you to Fady and team for your hard work and support!

Solomon is an excellent Lawyer, top in the field of firearms legislation. Would definitely invest time and money for his expertise. Thank you Solomon for first, taking my case and second, supporting a injured veteran.

The night I was charged with assault after a night out drinking was the worst night of my life. As a police officer, an off duty assault conviction would have jeopardized my career. I have worked closely with lawyers my entire nine year career. Either directly with Crown on a case or through cross-examination by defence counsel and after a few minutes of speaking with Solomon shortly after my arrest I knew his knowledge and ability to articulate legal principles were unmatched. He spent nearly an hour on the phone with me gathering facts and providing clear instructions. Throughout the process he kept me updated as to what was going on and I was extremely impressed with his handling of my case. Solomon did his homework on the accusers and witnesses and prepared an unbelievable defence which ultimately led to the charge being dropped on the first day of trial and allowing me to continue my career as a police officer. I’d recommend Solomon to anybody who is in need of expert legal defence.
