Bruce enjoys helping clients resolve complex financial and personal divorce issues with hard work, common sense, and attention to detail. He resolves the majority of his family law cases, but if a fair resolution cannot be reached by agreement, Bruce zealously represents clients in court. Bruce’s goal is to allow his clients to close the chapter on their divorce with dignity and a resolution that is a “win/win” solution for the parties involved.
