He also has an extensive educational and professional background, encompassing law, (Bachelor of Science as a Paralegal), business management, county assistance programs (Medical Assistance/Medicaid), insurance, investments, estate planning and public speaking. All of these designations demanded that he undergo extensive training in the respective areas, and then demonstrate his competency through personalized examinations.

Mr. Freimark’s clients appreciate his wealth of knowledge, his down-to-earth style and his safety-first approach. They appreciate Bradley providing them with creative and conservative alternatives to the risk and fees that many previously faced in traditional stock market investments.
