Bruce and his law firm are professional and courteous. The main issue I had with them during our three month proceedings was that they tend to instigate matters versus trying to resolve things amicably. Throughout the case, I got the impression that Bruce and team were trying to optimize for the money brought into their law practice by extending the case versus looking out for my family's interest. Additionally, I thought Bruce did not research topic thoroughly with regards to out-of-state rules and prior cases that were brought up in the hearing. He seemed stumped when the opposing counsel brought up a case reference he was not familiar with and did not leave a good impressions with the judge. Overall, I would not recommend Bruce Clements for family law cases, where you need a non-aggressive approach and want to settle out-of-court if possible.

I've interviewed and gotten advice from many lawyers and none of them helped as much as Bruce Clement did. I can't afford to hire an attorney right now, but Mr. Clement gave me a free half hour consultation... that he generously let stretch to an hour without even mentioning it. He explained in detail, exactly how to handle my case, what form, how to fill it out, etc. He gave me all the information I needed to solve my own problem. I can't thank him enough.
I was impressed with his thoroughness and the respect he showed me. I was also impressed that he, the head of the law firm, spoke to me himself and didn't pass me along to one of his employees. Mr Clement also made himself available to speak to me, even though it was around the holidays. It speaks volumes about him, that he cares that much about someone who can't even hire him. I would not hesitate to hire him in the future.

Our legal separation case was finalized at its earliest possible time during Christmas holiday! My long-dragged case was finally over just a few weeks after Bruce took my case. Thank Bruce for his extensive experience/knowledge and absolute dedications to his clients!

Knowledgeable about divorce from a military man and all the departments of the state and government to file claims. Great advice and helpful. Even tempered and since our schedule was very busy with my daughter's school and work, he worked around her lack of time well and was understanding when late with a child. Prompt, all around winner.

Mr. Clement and his entire staff were a pleasure to work with. I had a difficult Child Custody situation compounded by the fact that I was deployed with the Military. Mr. Clement was able to help me gain custody of my child even while being on Active Duty, something I would have thought was impossible a year ago. I would reccommend Mr. Clement to anyone and I have the highest respect for him and his staff.

Mr. Clement's staff was exceptional in their duties. I waited six months after trial ended to ensure I would write a fair review and not just write something while I was angry. I will say that if you have a fairly easy case he may be the attorney for you. On the other hand, if you have a high-conflict case that will be extensive, confusing, and exhausting I would not recommend him for he will not dedicate the time needed for such a case. The judge at my trial went almost completely against what the GAL had recommended to the court because Mr. Clement failed completely in corroborating what the GAL recommended. Prior to trial I attempted to give him a copy of the book Splitting stating that this will be what this case involves and he flat our refused to even look at it stating, "that's not how the courts work". That statement and his refusal to believe in his client's crazy story is still costing my daughter and me dearly. I have since spoken with other attorneys that can't understand why most of my evidence, that clearly painted what was going on, was dismissed by Mr. Clement because he deemed it all as irrelevant. Again, if you have a high-conflict case, .... keep looking. If you and your ex are working together, then this is your man. His firm will draft amazing paperwork for you both. I hate writing this but prior to retaining him I explained that my case was going to be extremely high-conflict and he assured me that his firm was prepared. He failed my daughter and I both and I don't want anyone else to have to go thru that. These cases are hard enough ... financially and mentally! Also, he is extremely knowledgeable but just not in dealing with high-conflict cases which is why I only rated him as Fair.

I have worked with Mr. Clement during the entire duration of my divorce. From the very first consultation till the settlement, Mr. Clement and his stuff kept me informed and offered best possible solutions under the circumstances. Mr. Clement and his amazing paralegal, Dianne, were always available for me and addressed my concerns in timely manner and in most effective way. My divorce, as I am sure many are, was a long process. Mr. Clement was very knowledgeable in every step of the way and could find less costly and nevertheless effective solutions that could spare me some of the costs and saved time as well. During the mediation, Mr. Clement was efficient and well-prepared in all of the details of my case. Through some compromise on my part he delivered surprising results and avoided trial that could have been nerve-wracking, very expensive and probably not as beneficial to me.
I recommend Bruce Clement as a trustworthy, reliable and shrewd ally, someone who can make a difference in a remarkable way.

I have used Avvo for legal questions, and few lawyers have offered answer in detail that Bruce answered my query. I would assume Avvo is source for lawyers to connect with potential clients. Bruce is the only one that has ever offered further information on his services or expressed any solution for a problem. Avvo seems to be a great site, but many of the lawyers do not answer with any specificity or seem interested in assisting a client with a personalized answer. Thank you Bruce.
