I retained Bruce to assist me with a conflict with one of my neighbors. In the scheme of life, my case was pretty "small potatoes," but it was important to me, as my neighbor, an attorney herself, seemed determined to put our conflict on the fast-track to Crazy Town. Ugh.
Since I've never before had a conflict with a neighbor (or anyone else in my personal life) that required legal advice and action, I was seeking someone who would listen to my situation, advise me re: the appropriate action--legally, socially, and psychologically-- to resolve the conflict, as well as "have my back" and represent me, should the matter escalate.
Enter Bruce: level-headed and calm, he treated my situation with care and respect. He is very intelligent, insightful, and his people skills are excellent. He listened attentively, advised me on the general handling of my situation, and then proposed the next steps. I feel that Bruce really achieved the perfect balance of aggressiveness and diplomacy in his communications on my behalf. I'm happy to report that the problem with my neighbor has greatly improved, and there have been no unexpected trips to Crazy Town! --All thanks to Bruce.
I also appreciate Bruce's integrity: he could have acted on my behalf with fewer billed hours (and said so), but I really wanted to participate in, and learn from the process, so I didn't mind paying for extra time.
It was a pleasure to work with Bruce, and I highly recommend his services!

Bruce is one of the best attorneys I have worked with, he is a consummate professional and is terribly efficient, sharp and dedicated. Bruce has a good sense of humor, which is important is this line of business where people sometimes take themselves a bit too seriously. He continually educates himself on the current and future trends of the industry and his attention to detail is beyond his peers. He is the future of the industry now and I look forward to work with Bruce in the future.

With a new business, a lot of things are uncertain. When an unexpected turn of events came to play, Bruce was right there reassuring us he was going to take care of it all. He was caring, thoughtful, listened to our every nervous thought. He took care of the situation without delay, which made us feel very at ease. Continous follow up also reassured us of his exemplary professional etiquette.

I've known Bruce for quite a long time but have never had the opportunity to work with him. Bruce was very patient and informative while helping to negotiate my employment contract. Whether it was day or night, Bruce was incredibly responsive as well. Bruce ended up helping me through to a positive resolution and I will highly recommend him in the future.

I was especially impressed with the gentle demeanor of Mr. Abel. Not only was his presence non-threatening, his humbleness, and willingness to accomodate me was out of the norm in comparision to my past experience with other lawyers. I would certainly recommend his services to others.

I spoke with half a dozen attorney's this past week, looking for the right one for a personal injury matter. Of this group, Bruce stands out as the most responsive and most genuinely interested in helping. We met with him at his office and felt welcome, not rushed. Patient and knowledgeable as he is, he made us feel confident we could move through the necessary legal actions with an ally who really cared about our well-being.

There's an old adage, which says something like if it seems too good to be true, then it's probably NOT true. Consequently, having this statement swirling around my head, in addition to reading the other reviews, I began to wonder if I'd do more harm than good by adding my comments which happen to concur with the fact Bruce is all those things and more. My mom & I met Bruce 20 years ago; and, although she is no longer with me, I vividly remember how much faith she had in him. And, because my mom was tough as nails, her opinion weighed in heavily with me as well as with just about anyone who had business dealings with her -- so much so there were times I thought to myself, "mom, cut them some slack." However, overall, there was no denying her business acumen was superb; and, thankfully, that trait was one of the many "gifts" I inherited from her. I've shared this to say, only someone as brilliant as Bruce could stand toe-to-toe w/my mom. He didn't fail her& he has never failed me.

Bruce is very knowledgable and stays on top of things. He has been a great advocate and dedicated for justice in my case. He is a great person to have on your side! Bruce has been dedicated to my case in that he has communicated with me on weekends and as late as midnight concerning my case and is very understanding to the fears and anxieties that I have had in my case.
