Attorney Endorsements

  • Douglas Paul Whipple

    I endorse this lawyer. Bruce did an excellent job mediating three matters on which I was an attorney. Two were successful. One was extremely complex and difficult yet Bruce faces and overcame the formidable challenges. He understands the techniques of skillful mediation as well as anyone with whom I have worked.
