"We retained attorney Bruce Jaques to assist us with a delicate and very serious civil matter. There were many issues involved and our opponents were big names and well-established. Over a period of months, Bruce negotiated an excellent solution and our lives are much better due to his efforts. Bruce made the problem go away and his legal fees were reasonable. We highly recommend him.

I was recently sued for defamation in San Diego, CA by a large corporation. The plaintiff alleged libel, slander, and false light. The case arose from an Internet post that I had made about the company. To defend me against this lawsuit, I researched a number of lawyers and then retained the services of defamation attorney Bruce Jaques Jr.
I consider myself very fortunate to have selected Mr. Jacques to represent me in this matter. He is exceptionally knowledgeable about the complexities of the law of defamation. Right away Mr. Jaques grasped the nuances of my case and prepared my defenses. He also approached the plaintiff's complaint in a careful, crafty way. First, using only legal arguments, he promptly persuaded the plaintiff to drop the cause of action for false light. I was thoroughly impressed and reassured by this result.
Second, Mr. Jaques took an active and aggressive approach to my defense. He accomplished this by filing a special "anti-SLAPP" motion and immediately engaged the plaintiff corporation. In only a few months, as opposed to the typical 12 to 18 months, Bruce Jaques had the libel and slander claims against me permanently dismissed. I paid the plaintiff nothing!

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Bruce and I worked together on a contentious business sale. Bruce was thorough and well-versed in all aspects of civil litigation. Over the years Bruce and I have become friends and I admire his enthusiasm for the law and the respect he has earned throughout the Southern California legal community. I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer.
