Bruce Blanchard was an amazing lawyer. He helped me get out of two felonies with the best possible outcome. Totally worth the money.
Bruce handled a complex plaintiff's matter for me and my family. It involved complex and novel issues of law and fact, difficult defendants (e.g. the State of Virginia), and a very challenging emotional situation. He handled all of this very well. While there is no such thing as a good outcome in this type of case I do believe that we got the best outcome we could given the circumstances thanks to Bruce.
He will not fight for you especially if it is a small criminal case.
His lack of interest in the case (not in the money), now is costing me my future. When I told other attorneys how he had handles my case, they stay puzzled and surprised. I have had other cases with other attorneys in the area related to business and family law.
conclusion: for him and or other attorney's, do not believe their CV. Go to the courthouse and watch their work.
