In my opinion, Keith Bruno is top notch legal council. After finding myself in an awkward legal situation, I hired Keith to represent me. He conducted himself with the utmost professionalism and really gave my case very personal attention and I feel that after having him represent me , my case came out with the best possible outcome. I have since recommended family and friends to him for representation based on the merit of the job he did for me. They were all very happy with the outcomes of their cases as well. I will continue to use Keith for any other matters that might come up requiring his skills and recommend anyone reading this review to do the same if the want the best possible representation in a criminal matter. Thanks Keith :)
I have known keith for a number of years. He is very professional, forward, hard working, intelligent, and always pushes to do the best he can..in my opinion nobody does it better. Ive also worked with Keith. Ive never worked with anyone who worked as hard as he did for all his clients. Keith genuinely cares for his clients and strives to give them the best representation possible. I will always refer Keith because in my opinion, he's the best!
I hired Keith to represent me for a DUI offense and was totally impressed by his professionalism, intelligence and service. I had a number of unusual circumstances and questions, and Keith helped me to navigate my options with skill and patience. I paid him a fixed fee up front, as others have commented, and determined across the course of my case that his price was incredibly fair - generous really, given the amount of time that he spent helping me. Keith is well respected by his peers in the court and truly committed to helping people. I have recommended him to friends and they have all come back to me later with remarks that he did something special and above and beyond.
I got a DUI, it was my first, and it was pretty scary. I had no clue how to go about what was about to happen to me from a legal standpoint. Keith was on top of it since the moment I contacted him. He explained the process and told me exactly what I was looking at and what he could do to ease the stress of it all. Seeing that Keith has other clients I understand he cannot be at my beckoning call, but he always got back to me the same day. I would recommend Mr. Bruno to anyone and would use him again in a heartbeat if I were to ever encounter anymore legal troubles.
I have turned to Keith several times for legal advice, but he truly came through when I needed him most. I was arrested for a DUI in October 2012 and it was devastating. Keith not only calmed my tension regarding the horrific ordeal, but also gave me the most sound guidance I could have hoped for. His swift action directed me through the proper channels both in the DMV and the courts. He thoroughly prepared me for my DMV hearing, prepared me for my day in court, and helped me achieve an almost impossible task of minimizing a FIRST offense DUI. Rather than extensive fines, amazingly I received a stipulated Wet-and-Wreckless. Much less in fines and reduced legal implications. Thankfully no one was hurt in my severe indiscretion and Keith cared enough and helped me to communicate that this is an isolated incident that I intend to NEVER happen again. Thanks Keith for all that you do, and while I plan to turn to you for legal advice in the future hopefully it will never be for such a serious lack of judgement on my part.
I was referred by Mr Bruno from a friend who had the same second offense (dui) as I did. At first he seemed to be very willing and motivated to help with my case but that quickly changed. Mr Bruno explained to me after getting all of the discovery that the state had not much of a case against me. I requested copies of some of this on numerous occasions and never did receive any of it. Also, I was never informed on the outcome on dmv reviews which he urged me to pay for and I did. Furthermore, he was late to every single court hearing except the last one, forcing me to miss more work because of his extreme tardiness not to mention irritating the judge and DA working my case. I believe Mr Bruno to be an intelligent attorney. However, his effort to produce the best judgment for you is directly related to the dollar amount you paid him and his interest or lack there of in your case. I was also asked to pay cash upfront with no record of payment which I agreed. I'm not sure if this is typical but I would not recommend this attorney for anything nor would I have him represent me for free ever.
I had Keith handle a minor probation issue for me with a case that was transferred to Orange County. Although it was a minor matter and only required 2 court appearances, he resolved the issue, was extremely communicative, very professional in the courtroom and best of all, successfully negotiated a resolution on my behalf. I can't say enough about what a great attorney Keith is and if I were ever in a similar predicament, would not hesitate to contact him immediately.
I WAS NOT A CRIMINAL, BUT THE ORANGE COUNTY DA TREATED ME LIKE ONE. FORTUNATELY, OUR FAMILY COULD AFFORD KEITH BRUNO. WE INTERVIEWED 5 LAWYERS AND FINALLY OUR FAMILY ATTORNEY RECOMMENDED KEITH. HE SWOOPED IN AND FIXED WHAT OTHERS SAID WAS NOT FIXABLE. THANK YOU KB!!!!
Mr. Bruno was all about the results. he won my case when other lawyers and friends said it was impossible. He is the best. I was accuses of embezzlement of a lot of money and computer equiptment and I thought it was hopeless. He fought and I won thank god.
I didn't feel like he cared about my case at all. He didn't return phone calls, expected me to remember things that I had no experience with. All in all, he got the job done, but I felt he could have done a lot better and been more assertive with my case. It didn't seem that he put any effort in it whatsoever, and considering the price he charges, he lost a lot of respect from me.
