About Gavin

Learn Gavin’s areas of practice.

My areas of practice include professional malpractice defense, maritime law, and general litigation. I also assist clients with estate planning, provide legal services for the Senior Law Project, and take civil case assignements from the United States Disctrict Court Pro Bono Panel. 

Outside of my legal practice, I enjoy spending leisurely evenings around the city with my wife, Suzie, as well as spending time giving back to the community. I love U.S. history, and enjoy volunteering with projects that educate young members of the community about the law and the history of our country. I am a Mock Trial Coach to a wonderful groups of students at Jefferson High School (Go Dems!), and sit on the Board of the Oregon Chapter of the American Constitution Society and the Committee for the St. Andrew Legal Clinic Race for Justice.

Legally Bald

The best around
Gavin Bruce, what to say… He is really just the best. It’s like an as seen on TV lawyer but he BACKS IT UP. I really can’t rave enough about Gavin— or GB as I call him. He keeps it professional but knows how to knock back a Costco pizza if the time comes. This lawyer really puts the GAVE in gavel. He also volunteers his time as a local mock trial coach and orphan saver. The kids cannot say enough good about him, I’ve heard they make fun of his bald head (the one drawback) but he takes it in good faith, just like his practice. Right now he is a federal prosecutor or as his convicted call him “satan spawn” but he only puts away the bad guys. If he ever comes out of retirement and starts his own practice let me tell you, he is the big man with a big plan.
