About me

I am a personal injury lawyer with over 25 years of experience.  I graduated medical school in July of 2013 and am now the first and only board certified civil trial lawyer M.D. in Florida history.   I have tried over 60 cases to verdict.  I am a former police officer, paratrooper and combat veteran.  No other lawyer past or present has these qualifications.  My partner, Michael Ortiz, is a 22 year plus experienced personal injury lawyer who holds an advanced degree in Theology and is currently working on his PhD.   Michael combines qualities of honesty, professionalism and diligence with a deep abiding conviction to his faith and his clients.   Please visit our website, for more information.  We are available 24/7 in an emergency.

  • Christina Aliene Goldberg

    I've known Bruce for many years as a talented, hardworking plaintiff's litigator. I've had the honor of seeking his advice on my files, and of offering my own advice on a file or two of his. Bruce is confident, competent, honest, and a true advocate for his clients. Bruce is NOT afraid to take a case all the way to trial.
