Review Bruce Connolly

  • Excellent Caring Advice

    5.0 stars

    Posted by John

    Bruce handled a criminal matter for us and took the time to explain to process and help us navigate it to a successful result. His approach was personal and caring and he was always available to answer a phone call or an email. He also handled a related non-criminal issue and brought the matter to the best possible conclusion. I would highly recommend him.

    Bruce has done a tremendous job in my case. He went above and beyond to get to the end result we aimed for. He was very responsive and always available with any questions or consultations I needed. I would recommend Bruce to anyone I know going forward.

  • AMAZING Lawyer, AMAZING Person!!!!!!!

    Bruce is without a doubt the best Lawyer I know, He is very professional, he gives great advice, he is a great listener, he is impeccable at responding promptly, no question is too big or too small. From the moment I was REFERRED to Bruce, he was given in High Regards. From our initial meeting Bruce reassured me that I will be ok, I felt comfortable and confident that he had my best Interest. Every interaction with Bruce gave me more ease as I was a complete wreck from the beginning, ( this was my first time needing a lawyer to this capacity). Every email was answered with clarity, every phone call was received and Bruce never once ignored any of my silly questions or silly request. He was completely honest and open with me, he gave me a clear vision of what to expect even highlighting the unknown factor. Every Hearing Bruce was on time and ready to work in my favor, after every hearing Bruce would explain to me exactly what was said and what the expectations were moving forward. I received updates via email and phone calls, Bruce continued to encourage me to remain strong and be patient, and I did so.My Final day in court came and even as the Dark cloud was lifted Bruce remained confident and calm, our outcome was far far far better than we expected, my Case was dismissed and I owe it all to Bruce for being knowledgeable and a master at his craft!. I cannot thank this man enough for what he and his firm has done for me. I was given the "second chance " he spoke about. Bruce has proven to be top notch! Thank you Bruce for EVERYTHING , for helping me achieve this chance to prove that I am far beyond a better person than the mistakes I've made. I will always keep you in mind and I will always keep in touch!!!!!

    Bruce was a great lawyer to have when going into court, and helped me understand all of the outcomes that could come from court. Very nice, and able to help with anything possible. I would love to have him as my lawyer in the future (hopefully don't need one again, but he would be my first choice)

    Mr. Connolly was very helpful, courteous, prompt and responsive throughout both cases he represented me for. Mr. Connolly and his associate were able to knock down two back to back reckless driving charges and helped me evade 10 points on my license, a criminal charge, and a potential suspension of my driving privileges in NY. He is also very polite, informative, and does his best to tackle your particular situation to get you the best possible outcome. I highly recommend Mr. Connolly.

  • Waste of money

    1.0 star

    Posted by a client

    The only time he was helpful was during consultation in a glass room where everyone was able to see me speak about something upsetting. When I told him I did not have the full fee price that day, he started to act different and told me to call him the day before court if I had the entire amount, otherwise he was not able to represent me. This is very understandable. We all need to pay our bills, but the problem is that I called him and verified that I had the fee in cash and he told me he would be there to represent me. When I arrived to court, he texts me two minutes before the arranged time telling me his associate was on her way to represent me because he was busy with another client. With no other options, I was forced to accept his associate. When she walked in, she was NOT wearing a suit but was dressed very casual. The officers there actually thought I was a lawyer because I was wearing a suit. Moreover, she did not negotiate with the DA because I received the same plea bargain a person without a lawyer would. She did not know the facts of my case and I had to waste more time repeating it to her. I was already upset and nervous about my situation and I felt more uneasy that she didn't know anything. On top of that, she emphasized payment as if I was not holding the cash in my hand. Bruce never called me after he ditched my case. Instead, he had his assistant call me multiple times asking for my email to send me a closing statement to relieve them of any liability. I paid a lot of money for a stranger lawyer dressed in a cardigan to get the same plea bargain I would have received without a lawyer. (the court I was appearing in is known for not convicting people with small misdemeanors and focuses more on ACD with community service. Bruce knew this but just wanted more money and his quiet inexperienced associate was not willing to negotiate anything for me, not even one less day of community service .) I would not recommend him.

    Bruce Robert Connolly’s response: “We regret that you were disappointed in our firm's services, but your characterizations are inaccurate. Although we were retained just three business days prior to your court appearance, we used all efforts to be as accommodating as possible, and this included negotiating a highly discounted fee as a courtesy. We provided successful representation, as one of our very qualified associates appeared with you and achieved the result you wanted, which was an "ACD," where your case will shortly be dismissed and sealed. We wish you the best of luck in the future.”

    After spending 18 months on probation for a conviction of Aggravated DWI, I was recently eligible for an early discharge. I needed this matter taken care of with great haste, as the window for a job offer in another state was rapidly closing. Bruce handled everything in a completely professional and friendly manner. He was genuinely sympathetic to my cause and more than eager to help. In particular, his communication was beyond impeccable. He kept me informed of everything and answered all my questions confidently, without hesitation. His thoroughness in gathering all the necessary facts and putting together the motion with such short notice was impressive. His actions and confidence left me assured that I chose the right attorney to handle my case. And I was correct, as he was able to get me an expedited appearance with the judge and complete my early discharge process, despite the incredibly short timeframe that I was forced to hand him. I cannot recommend Bruce R. Connolly enough. This is a true professional through and through, and I am beyond delighted that he was the one to represent me.

  • Attorney Connolly - Guaranteed Exceptional Service

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Josh

    If you need an attorney in NYC and you care about the outcome of your case, Attorney Connolly is your man. I was recently facing three charges. Placed in a bind, I was forced to find a Manhattan attorney within two days of the initial charges. After a limited period of consultation with multiple attorneys, I came to the conclusion that Bruce was by far the most fitting candidate to handle my case due to his level of concern and promise of availability.

    I am not from NY and could not have attended court on my own behalf during the process. Attorney Connolly reassured me that his punctuality and dedication to my case would resolve this issue while ensuring a favorable outcome. Because of his prompt effectiveness as an attorney, all three charges were dismissed. Not only do I consider Bruce an incredible attorney, I now consider him a friend.

  • Excellent Customer Service

    Bruce was very helpful while helping me figure out how to handle several tickets that were given to me during my previous visit to the US (NYC). This was a huge advantage since I was not able to fly back to the US to resolve this. This meant that Bruce took the whole ownership of looking up information, showing for court on my behalf and then ensuring that the tickets were resolved without an impact on me or my criminal record.
    Great customer service, he exceeded expectations.
