Bruce: "I love my job. Most of the people I represent have been hurt through no fault of their own. Frequently their injuries have caused them to lose their job and their insurance. Sometimes they can't get the medical treatment they need because of inadequate coverage, exclusions in their policy or the refusal of an insurance provider to certify or approve treatment. Families rely on these people for both financial and emotional support. Often times it takes months or even years to recover from a significant injury but the bills just keep piling up. These are good people who really need help. I provide that help...and its very satisfying."
