Bradley Nelson

Brad was born and raised in Iowa and his roots run deep in Iowa’s agricultural economy. Since growing up walking beans for 25¢ per hour for his grandparents to his present involvement in the purebred livestock and farming industries, he has always had a love for Iowa agriculture. Brad graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science and then completed his legal education at Drake University with emphasis in its preeminent curriculum in Agricultural Law. Brad joined his father-in-law, William Q. Norelius, in the practice in Denison right out of law school. He has practiced his entire career with this one firm.

Brad’s practice is nearly entirely agricultural related. His practice focuses on real estate, probate and trust administration, estate planning, business planning and succession, farm program planning, tax and other related issues. Brad’s agricultural experience and background give him a unique perspective in the representation of agricultural clients. He has been involved in the show and breeding livestock industry for many years and represents many clients in a wide geographical area in the livestock industry.

Outside the office, he enjoys golf and spending time with his kids as they complete their education. Both Spencer and Hayley are students at Iowa State University.
