Bruce is very down to earth and will give you his best estimate of what is about to happen each step of the way. He is not a 'yes' man; although he is aware he is working for you, his honesty shines through even when it isn't the answer you were hoping for. I found the details of a difficult divorce handled professionally and meticulously and have used Bruce and his firm many times since for follow up motions and sound advice. I was more than pleased with the outcome each time and would highly recommend his services.
When speaking to others regarding the outcomes of various divorces and the result, especially for men like myself, many opinions agreed that my divorce worked out as good as possible. Bruce kept it simple, had foresight for both short term and long term situations, explained all of the various issues and overall made the experience as painfree as possible.
Bruce Matez keeps the focus while you, the client, are an emotional wreck. He understands the law, speaks well, and handles himself in the most professional way while still being incredibly compassionate. His focus is on the children. He doesn't allow you to lose sight of what is most important. He is not a "Scorched Earth" attorney.
Bruce was an invaluable and trusted advisor during a separation and divorce lasting many years. He knows the law, is an excellent facilitator, knows the judges and the courts plus he knows when to be nice and when it's time not to be nice. I never felt that he was doing anything but representing me prudently...enough emotion to be engaged with me but ample distance to advise me realistically. I would highly recommend him.
Bruce did an excellent job in representing me in reaching a divorce settlement. One of the hardest negotiations in my life was guided by the BEST in the business. His adversay attorney was ranked as the best in the State (my ex spared no expense as I had to foot the bill) and proved to me Bruce was the better attorney. I now have a new perspective and a settlement I can live with
