Review This Lawyer
Reviewed by J. W. June 12, 2021
I would highly recommend Mr. Bruce Ringstrom as a defense attorney.
I got myself into a situation where I needed legal help. I knew of Bruce's father through an organization I was involved with many years ago. Not knowing that his dad had retired, I called the firm and talked to Bruce. This was one of the most helpless times I found myself in my entire life and there is not much I ever fearful of. There was a possibility I could not only face a loss of reputation and family embarrassment, but also jail time, an expensive fine and the difficulty of finding future employment if I were to be charged with a felony. We hired Bruce on a retainer to attack the possible charge and found that this was the best money I had ever spent in my life. I would highly recommend that anyone facing potential charges consider hiring Bruce on a retainer. I consider my wife an excellent judge of character. After we met with Bruce, she felt a calmness that everything will turn out all right and she was right. We felt very well represented and felt very confident that things will turn out all right due to Bruce's expertise and connections that were available to him. He was upfront on what could happen and answered all of our questions since we had many, due to our inexperience with the legal system. The likelihood of having being charged with a crime is very slim right now due to Mr. Ringstrom's help and aggressive representation. All we can say is if you are in trouble with the law do not hesitate to hire Mr. Ringstrom. I would highly recommend him and his support staff who were also very helpful and also set my mind at ease on my initial contact with his firm. If any of my family and best of friends needed legal assistance I would not hesitate and only recommend Mr Ringstrom. You will also find that it is the best decision you have made too!
