I was going through a long process of trying to obtain child support for my three children. As a single mother, working and trying to take care of my kids I needed a good lawyer that would help my through my already desperate situation. Mr. Bruner was that lawyer. He was a God send. His compassion, knowledge of the law, and professionalism brought a speedy end to my legal dilemmas and a wonderful outcome for my children. I could not have been more pleased. I remember a time during the court process that I became so weary, and he said "everything was going to be okay." I knew then that I didn't have an ordinary lawyer but one who would fight for me even when it seemed I had no fight left. To me and my children...he is our hero. After trying to live off one income with three children I now went home with more peace and thankfulness knowing that my children were going to be taken of. Thank you Bruner and Associates!

Sam was extremely helpful to me in my divorce from the word go. He listened carefully to all the details and then gave me a frank and realistic assessment of the likely outcome of my case, should it go to trial. This gave me a clear idea of what to aim for in terms of settlement, enabling us to contest vigorously any unrealistic suggestions from the opposing party while being ready to accept what would clearly be a win. Importantly, in this very emotional time he helped to guide me how to manage the irrational objections of my ex-spouse and move things forward positively while protecting her feelings. He has a thorough knowledge of all the procedures and documentation and was willing to help me understand confusing matters any day of the week, any time of day. His fee schedule was fair and transparent with regular updates on cost and no surprises. I thoroughly recommend Sam.

Mr. Bruner has a good handle on how the legal system works and how it affects the general population. By his life experiences, he has broad views that lend well to giving legal advice about family issues. With that said, it was fairly easy to trust this man with our personal dilemmas. Mr. Bruner is a man of conscious and caring who I believe is striving to help people have more peace of mind and quality in their lives. He was more than willing to listen to us and take into careful consideration how all our decisions would affect our lives. He also made a conscious effort to streamline our meetings and not play into the overly litigious nature of some aspects of court proceeding. Mr. Bruner is obviously an intelligent well rounded individual and I feel it helps when an attorney has some depth of character. After being in my own business for several years, I have met attorneys who have no ethics. That is not Mr. Bruner, he is not out to deposit your check and disappear.
It is also fortunate that Mr. Bruner is located centrally in Buckhead. We are North of the perimeter, so it is nice not having to go downtown to get a quality representative. And that also makes it easier for Mr. Bruner to practice law in several metro Atlanta counties. He is very good at returning calls.

Mr.Bruner recently represented me in a very contentious child custody case involving my daughter,last year was 15 years old. Before working with Mr. Bruner, I had doubts that, as a father, the court system would would be able and willing to remedy a bad family situation involving my daughter based on previous experience.Out of all of my interactions with lawyers, I have found Mr Bruner to be one of the most competent, professional and understanding lawyers that I've ever met. He came to my home to meet and talk with my daughter and I(who was with me that weekend) to gain an understanding of our family dynamic and interactions. No other lawyer EVER bothered to do that before. He was able to clearly explain the legal process in a way that I could understand and was honest in his assessment. He clearly understood all of the issues involved and successfully navigated a complex case which helped me to get permanent custody of my daughter! .An as far as lawyers go, I did not feel that I was being gouged or taken advantage of. The cost of services provided by Mr. Bruner was FAR more reasonable than other lawyers and firms that I spoke with. I can not say enough about how satisfied I am with the services provided by the Bruner law firm.

Mr Bruner is a perfect example of what an Attorney should be. I must say that my recent experience with him has not only enlightened me on legal matters but has drawn my interest in the direction of studying Law. I had worked with a very lazy, incompetent and irresponsible Attorney who drowned me financially and basically threw me to the wolves. As the petitioner, I was in a fight of my life with my Attorney that couldn't do nothing for me. As i cried out for help, another out of state Attorney recommended Mr Bruner. Right from day one, I knew he was God sent. He is very professional, knowledgeable, affordable, friendly and approachable, and to my astonishment, he comes to you at home, office or any where that is convenient for his client. He is not the kind of Attorney that operates and practice from the Towers and charges the clients all kinds of money. He comes to you and takes his time to listen, understand and offer adequate advice and then educates you on the matter. This education goes on through out the duration of the case and by the time he is done with you, going to law school is no more an option. He responds to phone calls and emails in a supper timely manner. As complicated as my case was, he was able to reduce my child support and redirected the case in my favor. I have not smiled for over a year since the battle began until Mr Bruner came to my rescue. I strongly recommend this Attorney to any one. I am very happy and satisfied with his representation! Thanks a lot Mr Bruner!

Attorney Bruner was very patient when I called him with my situation. I was in tears while asking for help to escape/divorce a man that was not only verbally & physically abusing me, but threatening to kill me. He listened patiently & met with me ASAP to proceed, as we were soon to find out that the man I married was also a malignant narcissist & con artist. He has experience with these situations & worse & makes a point of understandinging while helping you to help yourself. I highly recommend Attorney Bruner, especially if you are truly the honest & truthful person in the situation know matter which side you represent. The truth is very important to him in any case & he makes that very obvious.

Sam. He got me my son. My wife and I had scoured the internet looking for a lawyer that we could trust. It was rather disheartening to find that the majority of lawyers out there, are sleazy, at least in our opinion. Then, we came across Sam. He talked to us over the phone for close to an hour telling us how difficult it would be to remove the parental rights of our sons deadbeat father. There were complications because the biological father was in the military and abroad. Sam spent time going out of his way to research the law to ensure that the process we started would be the most efficient, legally binding and least expensive. When we walked into the courtroom, less than 8 months later, the judge was already on our side, because of all of the hard work Sam had put down. I cannot recommend him enough. The fact is that without Sam, I'm positive that right now, my son wouldn't be mine, and for that, I am eternally grateful. He's made my family whole.

Mr. Bruner was an amazing lawyer. I asked him to help me with a TPO case that was in 2 days and to come in so late in the game and help me WIN my case was absolutely amazing. He helped me calm down and helped me to get a better understanding of what I was getting myself into. To be honest I am not the best public speaker but working with him I turned out amazing..
Thank you again Mr. Bruner I will forever be grateful and will definitely work with you again if needed.

Attorney Bruner filed a motion to change my custody agreement. He was very helpful in determining what was realistic. He talked to me like a person and really helped me understand the process. The outcome what better than I expected. I wish he had represented me in the divorce !

To be frank, I did not think that people like Sam Bruner still existed. When we think of the people who protect our families from harm, we tend to think of occupations like firefighting and nursing. , Sam Bruner resurrected my respect and awe for what the law was meant to be, at a time when the legal profession is devoid of ideals.
Sam became a lawyer later life, and therefore has the passion of a young lawyer without the starry-eyed idealism, and the wisdom of an older lawyer without the burnout. Sam is whip-smart, deeply sensitive, but is no-nonsense when it comes to what needs to be done. Sam also possesses an impression network of veteran lawyers with varying expertise he calls upon in the legal community.
Even lawyers who were listed as sensitive to the LGBT community, did not express interest or optimism in "the case" because it involved the dissolution of same-sex marriages not legally protected in the state of Georgia. My young daughter is in and out of the hospital, and Sam immediately focused on the difficulties my little girl stood to face without proper protection, rather than focusing on the complexities he might encounter in navigating in this murkier arena of family law.
Sam and I have shared many cups of coffee at my kitchen table the 6 months he's represented me, and he has been consistently compassionate, while educating me on the surprising subtleties of law, My entire family has gotten to know Sam, and he has uplifted us all.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about Sam, is that he cares about the truth. He came to my daughter's birthday party to be se sure that he was representing someone who was honorable as a parent. It feels great to have someone who is so knowledgeable, and kind in our corner.
If you need an effective lawyer who has an extraordinary mind and a kind heart, Sam Bruner is the person you want representing you. His work ethic is unsurpassed, and you will not find a more dedicated person, who is warm, professional, and caring to kids and to animals.
