Strategic And Collaborative Business Law Counsel
"Advocating for my clients is a passion. Because of personal experiences as a victim of violent crime and not being able to get the relief I wanted in the legal process; I always try to do my best to make sure my clients receive my best work. I know how it feels to lose or to be told you cannot do something."
Veteran and Real Estate Litigation Professional
Andrew Bruce is an Associate Attorney, focusing primarily on real estate and commercial litigation, construction law, employment law, and military and veteran disability rating appeals. He also serves as attorney ad litem for tax courts. He has a particular interest in working with real estate developers and general contractors, due to his understanding of construction regulations and codes.
A Passion for Helping Veterans
While working as a U.S. Marine, academic advisor, and host of a veteran-centered TV show at HCCTV, Andrew developed a passion for working with diverse populations and helping veterans receive rightful compensation if injured while serving, as well as connecting them with community services that are available for veterans. His TV experience provided a foundation for the quick-thinking speaking skills often needed in court-room settings.
Even though situations of conflict are unavoidable in litigation, due to a combination of personal experiences and professional background, Andrew is skilled in establishing direct, empathetic communication with his clients. He has a knack for diffusing contentious situations, and his time during his military career taught him to apply himself to situations with great attention to detail.
Effective Communication for Informed Client Decision-Making
The relationship between lawyer and client requires an effective and reliable communication. Coping with litigation requires having as much information as possible about the process: the pros and cons of different decisions, as well as the probabilities of success or failure. For our litigation expert Andrew, the most effective lawyer puts himself in the client's shoes, communicating effectively in straightforward and friendly terms that help people make the best decisions in their process.
