  • Anu Gupta

    I wholeheartedly endorse Bruce. I contacted Bruce for a brief discussion of SSI benefits for a disabled child. He was extremely courteous, has a great phone manner, and his knowledge of the law is excellent. If I have other questions, I would, without reservations, reach out to him as well as recommend him to others. I wish him the best.
