What You Need is YOUR OWN Hanify!! My outstanding capabilities as a researcher, writer and consultant and my unique style as an individual can greatly enhance your business writing needs. Here are what other folks have to say about my work:
“Bruce has a colorful writing style. It was not unusual to visit this court in the old days to file documents and see the clerks huddled around Bruce’s latest missive to the court-a public reading often ensued involving several of his most expressive passages. But far more important than his entertaining style was the generous dose of common sense that he wove into his arguments. I can think of no one who better joins the law with common sense than Bruce. When an absurd result would follow from a too strict reading of some legal doctrine, Bruce was there to tell the court that it had departed from a sensible course of action. Quite often, Bruce was able to turn the court back to a more realistic reading of the law; if not, he could sometimes get the Washington Supreme Court to correct the problem.” Kevin Korsmo, Chief Judge, Division Three, State of Washington Court of Appeals
“I was the Yakima County Prosecutor for 27 years and hired Bruce in 1988. He worked for me until 2000. Bruce handled a wide variety of cases from misdemeanors to felonies. He was the supervisor of our District Court Division and the first attorney to exclusively handle appeals for our office.
“Not only does Bruce write very well but he is an excellent teacher. I relied on him to train new prosecutors and he also provided classes for law enforcement personnel in Yakima County. Bruce has unique experience both as a criminal and civil trial lawyer. He has been a prosecutor and a defense attorney. His civil law experience is extensive plus he has worked as a mediator and as a guardian ad litem.” Jeff Sullivan, former Yakima County Prosecutor and U.S. Attorney, Seattle
In my new position as Executive for the Washington Association of Prosecuting Attorneys, most of what I worked upon was controversial and difficult to resolve, my success depended upon the individuals like Bruce, who I could trust to know what they were talking about and to communicate all the information I needed, not just information that agreed with the positions I took or considered taking. Years later, I had the opportunity to create a temporary position to enhance our ability to prosecute driving while intoxicated cases in Washington State. I hired Bruce to develop and train on a new manual for prosecuting driving while intoxicated cases in Washington State. Tom McBride, Executive, Washington Association of Prosecuting Attorneys
“Bruce was one of those unique personalities that really understood team work. He was always willing to offer guidance, cover a docket for you, and actually cared if you were having a bad day. I remember doing closing argument in a trial I was finishing while Bruce was picking a jury for me in the next case I was starting! Bruce is a talented trial attorney that charmed his way to many guilty verdicts by captivating the jurors with the way he presented testimony. In the trial attorney world, I call it the X-factor. It is the ability to present a case in a believable way that is easy for jurors to follow. His presentation is so down to earth that it is inherently reliable to the Trier of fact.” The Honorable Ruth Reukauf, Yakima Superior Court Judge.
“Bruce is one of the best writers I know. His ability to take huge amounts of material and reduce it into a clear and concise argument is astounding. He writes fast, lucidly, in any style. His deft prose always entertains, no matter what the topic.” Libby McIver, Travel Writer, Owner of 380 Concierge
“I’ve known Bruce in several capacities, every one of which he has shown a great understanding of himself, his customers, and those he worked with. More than that, Bruce is an intuitive and talented individual who always holds to the greatest integrity. I would recommend him for any position he chose to tackle, knowing that he accepts challenges with a strength of character I could get behind.” Terry Persun, Award Winning Novelist
“Bruce is one of the rare attorneys that combine a deep insight into human nature with awesome technical skills. Anyone who goes against him in trial will immediately discover they are up against a gifted orator and thought provoker. Glad to be able to call him a friend.” Craig Cahoon, Seattle Trial Lawyer
“I worked with Bruce at the Yakima County Prosecuting Attorney’s office. Bruce brought rare and effective qualities to bear as a prosecutor and appellate lawyer. Bruce is incredibly creative and a dedicated free-thinker. He works a case by learning the facts, thoroughly researching the law and using his knowledge and persuasive abilities to produce incredibly effective legal work. Bruce is always mindful of doing justice. Probably too many lawyers are just concerned with “the win”. Bruce wants to “win”, no doubt, but the concept of justice is not lost on him. Bruce understands history, our country’s legal foundations and how justice is integral to a peaceful, functioning society. In sum, Bruce is an effective lawyer, a perspicacious writer, and a GREAT person.” Scott Brumback, Attorney, Hurst, Brumback & Brusic, PLLC
