I hired Bruce to do legal work for my company and he seemed to be a very repsectful lawyer and told me I needed to give him a retainer of $10,000 which I did.  I just needed some basic advice and Bruce managed to rip right through my $10,000 faster than anyone could imagine.  Not only that he sent me an additional bill exceeding $15,000.  I scoured over the bills as you cold imagine trying to figure oout what he could have possibly spent $25,729 on and he was billing me for a 1.5 hour phone call here and a 3 hour phone call there.  I absolutely know I never spent more than 20 minutes speaking on the phone with him at any given time.  Then I saw where he was charging me for his calls to other lawyers to get answers to questions he obviously didn't have the answers to and had the nerve to charge me for those calls too.  Once I retained him he told me he would be in my area and wanted to take me to lunch, I obliged.  BIG mistake! Not only did I pay for the entire lunch, he billed me for the time he spent eating with me.  I've worked with a lot of lawyers in my day but this guy takes the cake times ten.  When I confronted his billing practices he said in the most offensive way "go ahead and don't pay it, I love suing a$$holes like you." I couldn't imagnine this was the same guy that I first met, talk about dual personalities OR just a great con, I'd imagine the latter.  Guess what I did? Bent over and took it where it hurts, I mean how do you fight a guy like that?  If you're looking for a good lawyer, do yourself a favor and avoid this guy like the plague, he will DEFINITELY steal your money and laugh at you when you ask him where it went.

Very disspointed

This "Report" is a Hoax by a Non-Existent Client

AUTHOR: Bruzer13 - (U.S.A.)

The person who wrote this report has never been a client of mine. I have never had a client who resided in Foothill Ranch, as this purported client claims to, who paid a retainer directly to me - however, I may have worked for other attorneys or for a law firm that had a client residing in Foothill Ranch, but that client would never have paid any sum directly to me. The $$ figures mentioned are 100% made-up. This report does not contain one true fact other than that I am an attorney.

If the author of this report cannot come up with cancelled checks, the retainer agreement, telephone records, the lunch bill, and any invoices I allegedly sent, he will have established himself as a person spreading untruths in an effort to achieve an untruthful agenda. When challenged in a separate rebuttal to a report published in 2010 by a fictitious client calling himself "Conrad," no one stepped up with any factual evidence to support that fictitious report by the fictitious "Conrad."

Finally, if the author has even one honest, decent bone in his body, he will have the backbone to publish an apology for making up a completely non-existent set of occurrences.
