About me

Bruce Stanger is a highly experienced Connecticut Legal Malpractice Attorney.

After graduating cum laude from Western New England College School of Law in 1977, I started my legal career as a law clerk for the judges of the Appellate Session of the Superior Court which was helping them write opinions a great way to start my career. Prior to attending law school, I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering in 1974 from the University of Hartford. I worked on the design of nuclear power plants before going to law school. I actually use the engineering/science background as a lawyer in many of my cases. I also used the engineering to earn some money while I was in law school, working part time as a computer programmer.

I have been honored with a listing in two editions of Who's Who in American Law. I like to give back to the profession as a contributing author to professional publications and as a speaker regarding use of technology in litigation as well as other subjects such as nursing home litigation.

Another way I try to contribute is to volunteer for a variety of organizations. I am currently the President Elect of the Rotary Club of West Hartford. I have been active in a host of organizations including as the President of the Probus Club, the Executive Committee of the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford, and as the President of the Solomon Schechter Day School where I served as President from 1997 to 1999. I was also instrumental in the $9 million campaign for the renovation and expansion of SSDS. I am a graduate of the Wexner Heritage Foundation Leadership program. I am the former chair of the Commission on Jewish Education. I am a current Director and past Vice President of Camp Ramah of New England. I am a co chair of the Israel Ride a 350 mile bike ride in Israel each year.

In my spare time I enjoy, reading, road races, bike riding and participating in area triathlons.

I am admitted to practice before all Connecticut state and federal courts. I am a member of the Hartford County Bar Association where I have served on the Office Technology Committee, the Civil Litigation Committee and the Ethics Committee. I am also a member of the American Trial Lawyers Association and the Connecticut Bar Association where I am a long term member of the Professional Ethics Committee, the Professional Discipline Committee and the Civil Litigation Committees. I am a member of the Family Law Section of the CBA. I have been trained in Collaborative Divorce, and I am a member of IACP, the International Association of Collaborative Professionals. I am of course a member of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association.
