I was owed $70k in child support payments, and my ex-husband escaped them as he could. Bruce used his skills and expertise to hunt down my ex in court. Action was taken. Of course, I did not get the remedy immediately, but at least I can feel I am on the right track now.

Even though that was my first and hopefully the last *acquaintance* with a divorce lawyer, I want to praise Mr. Provda for the service that he provided. In the midst of our marriage collapse, he was very calm, understanding, yet professional and down to earth. We were on a fixed fee agreement, but Bruce never rushed upon me or cut the corners. I am very satisfied.

I am just 19 and this is my first marriage. As per advice of my spouse, we decided to create a prenuptial, "just in case". Mr. Provda was on the same page and acted promptly. It was a little pricey for an agreement, but I realize this might save us a lot more in the future. I can especially recommend his paralegals who walk an extra mile to make you happy. Lovely!

I don't like dealing with lawyers too much, I think they only care about money and all that. Bruce did not change my opinion completely, but as far as his work is concerned he did everything brilliantly. The paperwork was filed in time. The motions were carefully researched and submitted. I had direct communication channel and was not left hanging in the dark. So, I am pretty much satisfied. And yes, Bruce also cares about money. But at least you get what you paid for.

I had a straightforward case, and I hired a straightforward lawyer. From start to finish, Bruce made it smooth, transparent, and efficient. This guy has tons of experience, and this really helps to avoid lots of unnecessary movement. My spouse was also satisfied. In fact, she did not even hire her own attorney! She was confident we were doing things right. Based on what I hear from my friends and colleagues who have gone through this, I saved enough time and money. Time to move on.

To those of you who does not know: avoid divorce litigation. If you failed, then hire Provda. He is a master of any kind of court action. Precise strategist and aggressive courtroom player.
My case was really a dead-end, with so much to split and so little left in common. However, with a careful plan in hand, we decided to take a proactive (and rather creative) approach. All the way through, Bruce was extremely responsive and open-minded. I got the best possible resolution, and what's more important I retained the custody over my child!

Bruce showed superb skills while fighting for my child custody. He is as aggressive as a hungry shark out in the ocean, but that's what you need to be able to wrestle hard decisions in court. Eventually, that's what did bring the result in my case.
Additionally, he uncovered a few legal options to file for the alimony, in retrospective. Now, it's time to file. I feel like my life is getting back to me. Thanks!

Honestly, I was looking for a female family lawyer, as I was under impression she could better understand my needs. However, my friends pointed to the direction of Bruce. When I came to see him, he looked like an "old skool" attorney from the past - and he is, in a good meaning. If he takes a case, then he is on it, literally. If there's a single chance of winning - he got you. Possibly, not the cheapest option, but who cares when it comes to child disputes? He thoroughly researched my case, found counter party's weak points and started from there. Eventually, I got what I wanted.
I am not sure about his other areas of practice. But I certainly highly recommend Bruce Provda for child custody law.

I don't really like to speculate, but this attorney did what I wanted so much, but didn't quite believe in - re-claimed my visitation rights. The case was extremely complex and complicated. Actually, we have a long "fight" track record with my ex-wife who readily robbed me of my beloved child. Now I am back into my life - after all the long years. Thank you, Mr. Provda.

I can only say good words about Bruce and his dedicated team. I was i the middle of some extremely painful divorce process that was heavily contested by my wife. We had sizable assets that triggered a dispute. Bruce was amazingly aggressive and confident in the outcome. Leveraging his tremendous experience, he was able to secure a very favorable resolution. He has a very well-trained office and customer support that were reallly available to update me on the case status in case Bruce was in court or somehow unavailable. I don't wish anyone come through such a bad situation, but in the worst case scenario you have Provda to take care of business.

Bruce is the most diligent and knowledgable attorney that I know of. Unfortunately, this was not the first time I confronted the issue with my ex-wife. I've come through many painful experiences, and that was getting back to me again and again until I hired Mr. Provda. This lawyer had no problem in taking the most aggressive and fierce approach. Sometimes, I even felt like that was over the roof, but at the end the result was plain majestic! I re-claimed my father's rights! During the whole case, I felt I was respected and treated really well. If you want an old school New York attorney, hire this guy.
