Bruce just goes above and beyond for his clients. I've used Bruce for legal representation for about 6 years now, criminal and minor traffic cases and have always beat my case. If your looking for a Lawyer that actually cares about his clients and does his absolute best you have found him.

Throughout life, I have hired my fair share of lawyers, wether it be immigration, employment, traffic and unfortunately criminal. Some lawyers were good, some were mediocre, and some were terrible. The one lawyer that sticks out in my mind as absolutely excellent is Bruce Schottland of Harter & Schottland.
I was charged with a double DUI and blew over the limit. I was devastated and felt helpless. I feared tremendously my immigration status was in jeopardy. I interviewed five or six different lawyers but decided on Bruce. He was there to help me pick up the pieces and had my cased dismissed and re-filed as an ordinance, which is like a parking ticket! He obtained the best possible outcome for me. He was so thorough and patient, this gave me hope and kept me positive throughout the case.
I was charged with criminal damage to property and could've been up-charged to a felony, but again Bruce obtained the best outcome for me yet again. He has solved my legal problems.
I knew I had the best of the best when the prosecutor in my first case told me in the hallway that I was lucky to have such an excellent attorney. The judge in my second case told me I had a great lawyer. I do not plan in getting any more trouble, but if I ever do, I will always go to Bruce. His professionalism, thoroughness and patience remains unchallenged!

Bruce is one of the best attorneys that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Particularly in Lake County, Illinois, Bruce's reputation, experience, and professional connections are unmatched. I think of Bruce as a guy that delivers results for his clients, even in the face of the most daunting criminal prosecutions. Without hesitation I endorse Bruce Schottland.
