  • Eugene L. Belenitsky

    I endorse this lawyer. A few times I had a legal question or needed someone else's opinion on a legal matter and I found Bill Bruce to be not only very knowledgeable about the law, but also very practical in his advice. He is very committed and passionate about his work. I would recommend Bill's services to anyone.

Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Censured
    issued in TN, 2015


    When an attorney is censured it means he or she did something wrong but may still practice law. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
