I am a 27 year old college student who was arrested in April on three misdemeanor assault & battery charges from an incident at a bar where a minor argument escalated and ended with three drunk people lying to the police about me. I hired Bruce Block to defend me, and I truly could not be happier with the results! Through his dedication and hard work, he ultimately got ALL charges dismissed and I escaped unscathed! He fought diligently for me throughout the summer, and even when the situation seemed to be the most dire he kept a positive attitude and made me feel safe, even though the pending charges against me were looming over my head and causing me extreme stress and anxiety. Mr. Block and his team of attorneys, interns, and legal assistants exude a warm and caring demeanor, and always kept me updated throughout the legal process. I just received the good news that all charges were dropped a couple days ago, and I am so relieved, and extremely grateful to Mr. Block and his team for all their hard work. Hopefully I won't need a criminal defense attorney again, but if I did I would absolutely hire Bruce Block. His fees are very affordable ($1,200 to get out of 3 misdemeanor charges!), and he has a very warm and welcoming personality that always gave me comfort, even when I was in desperate fear of the pending charges. He said something to me on our initial consultation before I hired him that really stands out to me: we were discussing how much it would be to hire him, and about how a violent criminal charge would stick with me and limit any potential employers for the rest of my life. He said, "How much is your future worth?" Well, thanks to Bruce Block my future is looking bright, and I will continue to pursue my academic and professional goals knowing in my heart that Bruce Block saved my life by vindicating me completely from the false charges I was alleged to have committed (for only $1,200!!!), and I will be forever grateful to him for all that he has done for me. If you need a defense attorney, I would strongly recommend hiring Bruce Block, you will not regret it!!

Bruce handled my felony marijuana case very carefully throughout the 10 months it went on. He was always very up front with me about what the potential consequences were and what I would likely be facing. I felt very comfortable working with him (despite the high stress of my case) as he always maintained clear communications with me about what was taking place.
Bruce was not only knowledgeable in the area of marijuana defense but he knew the majority of the people I was dealing with (Judges, prosecuting attorneys, arresting officer, drug enforcement teams, etc.). Bruce knew what my best options were even when my case looked as if it would go federal. It was the relationships Bruce has established throughout his career that helped me to broker a good deal despite all the craziness that occurred throughout my 10 month ordeal. Bruce helped me to get the charge dropped to a one year misdemeanor and got a first offender status on top of that (which means the conviction was set aside and will not even be put on my record as long as I successfully complete probation).
My overall experience with Bruce was very positive and almost life changing as I not only get to keep my job because I’m not going to jail but will not even have a criminal record as a result. It was also very important for me to have an honest attorney who prepared me for the worst in the beginning but gave me the results in the end to continue my life with little inconvenience going forward. I never plan to go the route I did in the past again but will most definitely call Bruce if anything else ever comes up and I am in a legal bind.

I have worked with lots of attorneys over the last 28 years. Bruce has more honesty and integrity than most of them put together. I have never met an attorney who works so hard for his clients and puts so much effort into whoever he may be working for. He is an outstanding attorney who takes his job, and more importantly, his clients seriously. I trust Bruce and I know that he gives straightforward and honest advice to the people he works with. He is an "attorney for the people", believing in their rights and fighting hard to protect them.

Attorney Bruce Block is an honest, no-nonsense attorney who knows how to represent clients charged with crimes. Our son was charged with various criminal counts of felony theft and Breaking and Entering. Attorney Block was able to get the charges reduced to the point, where our son did not go to prison, but instead was given probation and came home to hsi wife and newly born son! If we ever have a problem again, he will be our first call!
