    Pleasant is a well known and respected federal and state trial attorney who lives up to his exceptional reputation and was recommended by other local attorneys. Impressive is the fact that he has so much street savvy and experience, he can communicate on a level which allows you to know he understands exactly what you are going through while becoming your strongest asset and advocate. After getting through a very tough situation nearly unscathed, I now keep Pleasant on permanent retainer.

He was very knowledgeable in his craft, thorough, and pleasant through the whole process. ​Mr. Brodnax was kind and patient as he educated and assisted me in negotiating a very stressful legal process. This had a positive ripple effect through my circle of love ones, especially my autistic child and aging mother. Thanks to to him, I am home with my family. I am extremely blessed to have been represented by him.

    Mr. Brodnax represented a family member in Fall 2018 on a probation violation. I'm an attorney & felt client contact & handling was excellent; court appearance & prep for the hearing beyond compare! Saved my brother from doing himself a grave disservice when the judge asked him to explain why he was before him on the PV. Pleasant helped him course-correct in his response to the court which likely helped him avoid an extension of probation or jail time. Couldn't ask for better on this matter.

    I had the pleasure of representing a co-defendant of Mr. Broadnax's in a complex federal criminal trial before a jury. The trial took 10 weeks and involved mid-trial depositions and legal arguments before the court and direct appeal to the jury. Pleasant exhibited enormous legal capability had a firm grasp on the facts and was able to connect with the jury in a way that many lawyers only wish they could. He is charming and smart and all of those around him can appreciate his impressive ability.
