We received "that" phone call, our son was in trouble. He had a perfect history- never any problems - not even a traffic ticket. But now he was in serious trouble - we needed someone we could trust - that would be there for our son - Bruce was that professional, that caring person that would fight for our son and he did. If was not for Mr. Rivers our son would have lost his life - but his expertise, drive and fight made sure our sons life was not destroyed. We owe him so much! You can trust him and depend on him - he is the best!
Having been charged with a very serious crime was awful and very scary:( I was so scared and knew that I needed to hire a top lawyer. I was recommended to Mr. Rivers from a family friend who hired Mr. rivers and he tried their case and was found not guilty. With all of Mr. Rivers, Kelly (paralegal) and their investigators hard - detailed work on my case, I was ready for a trial and was confident with the choice I made by hiring this firm. The day of trial, the prosecutor made an offer that would keep the crime off my record so I took it. I honestly believe that this offer was only made due to my defense attorney and all of his hard work. Thank you!!!!
I will be honest I never cared much for lawyers in the past but I will never regret hiring Bruce Rivers. He helped me get through a horrifying experience.Bruce and his staff treated me with respect and dignity I was treated as part of the team.In my opinion his legal fees were worth every penny I highly recomend him to anybody. Bruce and Kelly "thank you for all you both have done"
Mr. Rivers handled my case and did not miss any detail. The case was a difficult homicide and he hired the right experts and the right inestigator to put together a defense and I am free now because of his good work. I read the prior review and have to say that my experience was far diffferent.
I would have to say my experience with this man was horrible. I found him lazy ,over priced and ill prepared .He was a nervous wreck and when things didn't go his way he simple gave up.I was told by someone that this man was just a con and didn't listen i now find it to be true on top of charging Over $2000 he hired an investigator to do his work for him them turned around and charged more money for him as well. Bruce Rivers did nothing he said he way going to do we provide him with all of the paper work and he still had no idea of what to do .When i asked what our next step would be when we lost He simple replied i don't know I'm mad.We could never get ahold of him and he never returned phone calls in a timely manner.all in all i would not recommend him to anyone EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
