Skilled, Tireless, Aggressive...Results!
Bruce took my call on a holiday weekend, immediately charged forward and stayed focused all the way through to the end. Like another reviewer, he was my third attorney. He picked up the pieces, figured out where the case was, created a strategy that we agreed on and changed the direction of the case positively. Bruce Sherman along with his co-counsel and staff are all complete professionals in everything they did for me. From the aggressive representation, to the research and case law, to the documentation and billing. In a very difficult and non-ordinary divorce and custody case that went all the way through to trial, the Sherman team was there to answer every call and respond to every email no matter what the subject. Ultimately they delivered the favorable outcome I came to them seeking. I could not have asked for more.

Bruce H. Sherman, Esq. Attorney for High Profile Divorce
Pharmaceutical Client vs. former NFL husband…Bruce Sherman, Esq. was legally appointed to complete and finalize my Divorce. Although he was the 3rd lawyer to represent me, Bruce should have been my first choice. He quickly got acclimated to the complex divorce proceedings. Not only is he an expert in family law, his staff and support office managers help and confort you. He kept me informed of the process and all court obligations. We discuses Divorce goals and community resources around material assets, finances while protecting the children. I felt like I was a part of the law office and team working toward our goals. I highly recommend Bruce Sherman to anyone that is going through a Divorce, he does seem to shine when it is a high profile divorce and he is not afraid of the challenges that each Divorce brings to the table. Bruce knows the law and will work with you on obtaining your desired outcomes.

Best in Salem County
Bruce is an excellent attorney. He helped me through a very difficult and somewhat complicated divorce. He kept me informed, kept things moving, and I would hire him again in a second for any legal issue that should arise.
