Brad Bailey Included in Best Lawyers for 2022
For the second year in a row, Boston-based criminal defense lawyer Brad Bailey has been honored as one of the nation’s best lawyers by the respected and authoritative attorney-rating platform, The Best Lawyers in America, for his high caliber of work in white-collar criminal defense. As such, he will be featured in the 28th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America publication for 2022.
Best Lawyers is a peer-rated and voter-based designation that is widely sought-after, limited each year to only a handful of attorneys in a specific practice area. For this reason, Best Lawyers is one of the highest honors an attorney can receive in recognition of their excellence and experience within their designated field. The sophisticated, rigorous, and transparent survey process consists of 5 steps, which include:
- Nomination: Lawyers can be nominated by anyone but themselves.
- Peer Review: Attorneys who are currently recognized by Best Lawyers provide feedback on the caliber of candidates’ work.
- Feedback analysis: Results are collected, and voter feedback is reviewed.
- Eligibility check: Candidates are verified to be in good standing with their local bar associations.
- Results: Firms are notified of the results and the newly recognized lawyers are published in print and online.
A former state and federal prosecutor with 5 decades of trial experience in the criminal justice system, Bailey has exclusively defended state and federal cases for the last 22 years, often handling some of the highest-profile cases in the state and region.
Bailey’s white-collar state clients faced accusations including public corruption, health care fraud, theft from charitable organizations, corporate theft and embezzlement, income tax evasion, and money laundering. His well-known federal white-collar cases include:
- A Massachusetts Department of Probation First Deputy Commissioner accused of racketeering (RICO), and racketeering conspiracy, in a case alleging mail fraud and bribery in connection with suspected false hiring practices.
- A former Massachusetts State Trooper accused of embezzlement in connection with an alleged scheme to submit fraudulent traffic tickets in order to accrue unearned and unauthorized overtime pay.

- A Fortune 500 VP charged with wire fraud, mail fraud, and money laundering in connection with an alleged embezzlement scheme using false invoices and fraudulent vouchers to fund personal travel/entertainment for an exotic dancer(s).
- A Pittsburgh woman charged with wire fraud and identity theft for allegedly defrauding advertisers and exhibitors out of thousands of dollars paid in advance of a non-existent (fake) bridal show (in a case colloquially referred to as Bride-scam”).
