Brad Parkinson - Social Security Disability Specialist

Navigating the world of Social Security Disability Benefits can be a confusing time filled with many questions. Hiring a lawyer that can help you through the complicated maze of legal worries, and is essential to receiving the maximum amount of benefits available.


As one of the founding partners of Petersen, Parkinson & Arnold, PLLC, I have represented thousands of disabled clients throughout Idaho, in Social Security Disability Law, Worker’s Compensation, and Personal Injury claims. Through my 22 years of experience, I have found satisfaction in helping clients win their cases and giving them the news of a favorable decision. As a local to the area, I have a reputation for being hardworking and honest and is focused on providing you with a more personalized experience.


My wife and I have been married for 33 years and have 6 children and 8 grandchildren. When I’m not busy winning your case, I can be found on the football field as the assistant coach to the local High School team, fly fishing, developing my photography skills and spending time with my family.
