Some poppies stand taller in the field than others; some lawyers stand taller in the legal field than others. Bruce Stanton stands tall. Mr. Stanton rises above the field due to his clear, linear thinking and purposeful strategy for winning, his unruffled, professional demeanor in the courtroom, and his management style with his clients. And he wins his cases. He won our case!
For two years in a row, and two litigations, Bruce Stanton has been the attorney for the El Nido Estates to prevent two separate, exorbitant 100% rent increases in our rent-controlled mobilehome park.
In contrast to the opposing lawyer, a high-powered, high-priced master of sophistry, who relied upon theatrical antics, procedural objections, straw-man arguments and convoluted logic, Bruce Stanton, with a calm and steady hand, kept his eye focused on the facts and legal arguments it took to win and quietly and masterfully prevailed! Undeterred by the antics of the opposition, he tartly rebutted each argument they enumerated and deftly shone light on their obfuscations. He was a brilliant foil to their clown.
Equally impressive, Bruce Stanton was masterful in his handling of us, his client/s (all 155 mobilehome residents), when we became fearful and demanding. He calmed our fears and guided us back to the facts and our strategy to win. He was patient and generous with his time while being respectful of “billing hours”. On two occasions he participated in a phone conference call with all residents to explain the on-going legal process and answer our never-ending and repetitive questions.
With calm expertise and a depth of experience, Bruce Stanton led the charge that protected rent control and denied the owner his exorbitant rent increase.

I am one of 138 residences within El Nido Estates Mobile Home Park and we as a group have hired Bruce Stanton two years in a row to defend a San Juan Capistrano city rental control ordinance that is being challenged by our park owner. Bruce had done an outstanding job last year, defending the ordinance, we hired him again immediately an look forward to a positive out come.

The residents of our mobile home park hired Mr. Stanton to represent us in response to the park owner trying to increase rents on every unit by over $600.00 per month. This figure is more than double some of the space rents. Mr. Stanton was so well prepared, knowledgeable, cool under fire, respectful--he reflected well on his profession and he succeeded on our, the residents, behalf. In my view, Mr. Stanton is a real working attorney; someone who is vested in the success of his clients. I am grateful he represented me and my neighbors during this highly stressful process.

We were facing an egregious rent increase by the owner of the mobile home park where we are living. We hired Mr. Bruce Stanton to represent us in this matter. Wow! What a great choice we made. He was not only a polished gentleman at all times, he is surely one of the most professional attorneys that I have ever had the chance to meet. Bruce did an excellent job for us, and at the same time, impressed our city council with his legal savvy and his professional presentations and demeanor. We would recommend Mr. Stanton to anyone facing a challenging legal problem.

Bruce created our living trust and did so in a very professional manner. He was helpful and explained everything to us in terms that were clear and concise. I would highly recommend him.

We were swindled by everyone from the seller to the broker to the park owner and her management including the park owner's greedy, unprofessional attorney, who Mr. Stanton knew from a previous case. Mr. Stanton was a gentleman, expertly professional and knowledgeable, helpful, and sympathetic. We started out with a very bad attorney and had to fire him because his course of action would have given our home to the park owner unconditionally. We were given Mr. Stanton's name from our home owner's association rep. After we disconnected ourselves from the previous attorney, Mr. Stanton didn't waste any time getting involved. He traveled to Orange County (where attorneys willing to help mobile home owners or who are even knowledgeable in mobile home tenancy law are practically non-existent) and did all he could do for our case. It's difficult to find an attorney who is also a good person, who has a good moral code, and I've worked with a lot of them. Mr. Stanton is an attorney from whom I would seek counsel again, even if it were a situation other than a mobile home tenancy problem.

I sold my mobile home on an installment contract. The gentleman quit paying me. A lot of attorneys don't do foreclosures on mobile homes. I was given Mr. Stanton's name from a mobile home finance company and called him. His fee to handle the foreclosure was very reasonable. I would have thought he would charge a lot more considering his expertise, but he was extremely fair. He has always returned my phone calls and been a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him in a flat minute. What's great is he doesn't just specialize in mobile home law, but business law and now I can use him for most things I need a lawyer for. I have complete confidence in his ability.
