Brad Markham is a probation and parole division supervisor who is in charge of Jimmy McGill's Pre-Prosecution Diversion (PPD) case.

History[]

After Jimmy breaks into his brother Chuck's house to destroy the evidence tape containing his confession, he is charged with misdemeanor breaking and entering. ("Klick",  "Sunk Costs")

However, the prosecutors allow him to complete a pre-prosecution diversion program (PPD) to simply serve his sentence with community service. ("Sabrosito")


At one of their appointments, Jimmy lies to Brad about associating with known criminals as he has been selling burner cell phones to criminals. ("Quite a Ride")

Jimmy sees Brad regularly over an eight month period. During the opening montage, we see Brad's hands regularly pulling Jimmy's file from a "current cases" cabinet. Eventually, he places it into a "closed cases" drawer when Jimmy's PPD sentence is up. ("Something Stupid")

During his reinstatement hearing to the New Mexico State Bar, Jimmy brings a letter from Brad stating that he was impressed with his dedication during his PPD sentence. ("Wiedersehen")
