Attorney David Bruegel has 37 years of serving clients, the first 25 years in a 350-lawyer firm which included business litigation; municipal finance; environmental law; and telecommunication regulatory matters.  David has always seen his practice as service to individuals, and in the last 10 years has moved from company representation, primarily to representation of individuals and families.  He has been able to use negotiation and communication skills, learned in the representation of Fortune 500 companies to the aid of persons with sensitive health and internal family disputes in a manner which consistently has produced reconciliation and clarification of complex legal and interpersonal issues.

David has continued his practice of responding to client’s questions the same day, if not the same hour.  He also responds to text messages, emails and cell phone calls, after hours, evenings, weekends and holidays, to assist his clients in addressing a matter that was disturbing them through these prompt responses that did not have to wait until the weekend was over or the next business day.

In addition, David has set an hourly rate well below normal hourly rates of other lawyers, and further, discounts a final bill to reflect what he regards and hopes is both a fair and reasonable charge for the work performed and its outcome.  Further, he makes it clear to clients that he wants to hear if any person does not regard the charge as fair, reasonable and appropriate.

The combination of the legal experience, personal commitment to sympathetically understanding underlying personal concerns and appropriate billing, combine to produce virtually uniformly very satisfied and appreciative clients and ones inclined to refer friends and family to him for legal assistance.

David’s peers have provided him, through Martindale Hubbell, the highest rating for professionalism available to lawyers in the United States.  He has also achieved top rankings by other entities that evaluate lawyer skills and legal abilities, based upon client comments.
