Hear directly from our clients why Bruce is the best criminal defense and family law lawyer in Phoenix, Arizona.

Bruce Blumberg has been an asset to my family ever since we first frantically searched for an attorney almost ten years ago. He is reliable, reassuring, and will fight for his client. His skill as a criminal defense attorney is unmatched.

Mr. Blumberg really helped me out when I was in a bind last year. He is kind, thorough, professional and yet a pit bull in the courtroom when needed. He appeared and was on time at every court date, even at the initial appearances, which I believe is extremely important. He along with his assistant Susan were always available throughout the duration of the case when I had questions or concerns. Bruce is well known and extremely respected within the court system which is also why I feel I chose the right person to help me. My family and I are grateful for his representation!

Our family was very impressed with the expertise in the legal system with Blumberg & Associates. From the beginning, their office staff (Bonny) and Bruce were very informative and knowledgeable in the legal system. They were always there to answer any question that we had or just to listen. We would highly recommend them to anyone!!
