    Bruce is one of the best attorneys that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Particularly in Lake County, Illinois, Bruce's reputation, experience, and professional connections are unmatched. I think of Bruce as a guy that delivers results for his clients, even in the face of the most daunting criminal prosecutions. Without hesitation I endorse Bruce Schottland.
