Attorney Awards


For more than 34 years, Attorney Bruce A. Bierhans has been winning cases and client confidence. Today, Bierhans and his staff at the Law Offices of Bruce Bierhans, provide clients with the highest quality of personalized and responsive legal services.

Bruce graduated from Suffolk Law School in 1982. While attending Law School at night, he worked as a senior aide in the Massachusetts Senate. Upon graduation, he began a trial practice in Canton, Massachusetts, and moved his practice to Boston in 1985. He remained in Boston until 1997, at which time he decided to return to the suburbs due to his desire to create a suburban firm that would give his business and litigation clients the same quality of legal service that they could obtain in the city, at a more reasonable cost.

The firm has grown steadily since that time. In the past thirty years, Bruce has successfully tried cases in the areas of business law, criminal law, products liability, medical malpractice and general negligence. Many of his business clients have been with him for most of his twenty-eight years in practice. He prides himself on taking on challenges that other lawyers have turned down. He has fought, and continues to fight for "the little guy", whether it be an individual or business. He has lectured nationally, to lawyers and physicians, on matters related to trial practice and has maintained an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell since 1987; the highest rating available for both skill and legal ethics. He is listed in the Martindale-Hubbell Bar Register for Preeminent Lawyers.

Bruce and his wife Nancy, who is the firm's office manager, satisfy their love of the ocean by residing in Wellfleet, Mass. Bruce is involved extensively in local charitable and non-profit organizations. He is on the board of Wellfleet Preservation Hall, is past President of the Payomet Performing Arts Center, is past President and Chairman of Outer Cape Health Services, and is currently President/Co-Chair of the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater (WHAT). He proudly served as Town Moderator in Wellfleet for two years.
