Bruce S. McDonald: Attorney with Law Offices of Bruce S. McDonald AV stamp icon


Attorneys have a rather unique ability to help people. We are trained and licensed to access the courts across the state to help our clients. We utilize the current law to provide remedies to those wronged and we have the ability to challenge and change laws that do not provide the justice that our society demands. In representing our clients, we must always be pragmatic and vigilant to think outside the box, color outside the lines and keep an eye open for the best practical outcome that we can achieve for our clients.
