Honestly, I was looking for a female family lawyer, as I was under impression she could better understand my needs. However, my friends pointed to the direction of Bruce. When I came to see him, he looked like an "old skool" attorney from the past - and he is, in a good meaning. If he takes a case, then he is on it, literally. If there's a single chance of winning - he got you. Possibly, not the cheapest option, but who cares when it comes to child disputes? He thoroughly researched my case, found counter party's weak points and started from there. Eventually, I got what I wanted.
I am not sure about his other areas of practice. But I certainly highly recommend Bruce Provda for child custody law.

Bruce is the most diligent and knowledgable attorney that I know of. Unfortunately, this was not the first time I confronted the issue with my ex-wife. I've come through many painful experiences, and that was getting back to me again and again until I hired Mr. Provda. This lawyer had no problem in taking the most aggressive and fierce approach. Sometimes, I even felt like that was over the roof, but at the end the result was plain majestic! I re-claimed my father's rights! During the whole case, I felt I was respected and treated really well. If you want an old school New York attorney, hire this guy.

I can only say good words about Bruce and his dedicated team. I was i the middle of some extremely painful divorce process that was heavily contested by my wife. We had sizable assets that triggered a dispute. Bruce was amazingly aggressive and confident in the outcome. Leveraging his tremendous experience, he was able to secure a very favorable resolution. He has a very well-trained office and customer support that were reallly available to update me on the case status in case Bruce was in court or somehow unavailable. I don't wish anyone come through such a bad situation, but in the worst case scenario you have Provda to take care of business.

I endorse Mr Provda. I have reviewed his many contributions on Avvo and found them to be highly competent & professional. Potential clients in the NYC area with divorce or family law cases will be well-served by retaining him.
