What others have said about Hon. Raymond L. Bruce


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NY178
Judge Bruce is a good person who happens to be a good judge. He has good instincts and is street smart. I argued a case before him two years ago. Given that the case was an ugly sex abuse case between stepfather and daughter, I wasn't too pleased with the judge I drew. However, he did acquit as he should have and I was impressed that he did the right thing, even though the case was so ugly. My only complaint, albeit a minor one, was that he insisted on counsel to approch the bench on almost every issue, no matter how trivial. But, having said that, he gave my client a fair trial. That's all we can ask for.

A decent man who is evolving and learning as a judge. I hope he stays with us in the Bronx.
