As a young attorney, Bruce trained at a national corporate law firm in Chicago, where he learned the fundamentals of trial practice and litigation management. Handling a wide variety of business cases, and rotating through each of the firm’s practice groups gave Bruce an early exposure to a broad spectrum of legal work that informed the approach he has taken to his practice over three decades. Bruce believes it is essential to consider a problem from various perspectives in the service of thorough preparation, and brings to each matter he handles a determination to learn the facts and history of the situation.
In more than 20 years in Los Angeles, Bruce has worked for large corporate firms, and for labor and employment boutique practices, where he has developed special expertise in the defense of discrimination and employment claims, representation of highly compensated individuals, collective bargaining, agricultural labor law and employment law counseling. His in-depth understanding of labor and employment law and procedures facilitates Bruce’s counseling practice, and enables his efficient, cost-effective handling of employment disputes.
Bruce earned his undergraduate degree, with honors, from the College at the University of Chicago. Before entering the University of Chicago Law School, where he received his J.D. degree, Bruce served as University Student Ombudsman by appointment of the President of the University. Bruce is admitted to practice as a member of the State Bars of Illinois and California, and he has been a member of the American Bar Association and the Los Angeles County Bar Association.
