Bruce practiced with the Denver Colorado ofice of Chief Counsel, office of the Internal Revenue Service, from 1986 until 1994, when he joined the Sandpoint law firm of Elsaesser Jarzabek& Anderson, Chtd., as partner.

Bruce's current practice emphasizes Chapter 11 bankruptcy restructuring, commercial and probate litigation, and tax controversies.

Among notable Chapter 11 achievements, Bruce currently represents the Sterling Mining Company, in a Chapter 11 proceeding where the assets of the mine have been sold for an amount sufficient to pay unsecured general creditors a dividend of 100% of their allowed claims, plus interest. The Sterling Mining Company case has been complicated by much contentious adversarial litigation which has spanned roughly two years; with all litigation deiceded or resolved favorably for the client.
