I have worked with Bruce Zef tel for over 20 years on varfious legal matters. He had done two Real Property Assessment challenges for us, represented us in litigation matters, and served as a mediator/advocate on an insurance claim matter where the insurance company refused coverage. Bruce succeeded in obtaining the coverage.
He is aggressive, responsive and readily available. ( He works-he does not golf).

Bruce is an excellent attorney. I have worked with him for over 13 years on literally hundreds of matters. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field and is able to get things done. He is by far the best attorney I have worked with and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Bruce for over 25 years. He is a brilliant attorney, a scholar as well as a statesman. Whenever he is our opponent on a case, we know we will have a fight on our hands. We are so impressed with Bruce's legal skills that from time to time we refer some legal matters to him. If you need a smart, tenatious attorney with excellent trial skills, Bruce Zeftel would be a good choice.
