  • Brian Alexander Coverdale

    I had the opportunity to work with Bruce on a case representing the plaintiff against a major insurance company. From the outset Bruce showed his expertise and knowledge in the field. He was the consummate professional in every regard and our client was extremely happy with his representation. I highly recommend Bruce as an attorney.
