I worked with Bruce Wiener on a post-decree relocation case. Everyone told me this kind of case was nearly impossible so I knew I would need strong legal support, but I didn’t know how I could afford it after years of financial struggle navigating high conflict custody matters in family court. Bridge to Justice made it possible. Bruce not only provided sound advice every step of the way in a complex case, but it was clear he truly cares about the families he works with. He stayed calm and neutral yet compassionate when things were heated, was respectful, professional, and timely in his communications, and his representation prevented me from taking the brunt of reactivity from the opposing party which helped reduce a great deal of emotional stress. Because of Bruce’s support, I was successful in getting approval to relocate. After 12 years away from home and family, I now have the support of loved ones and no longer have to raise my child alone. My child is protected and thriving like never before. Thank you Bruce and Bridge to Justice. You help make the impossible possible for the most vulnerable in our community and have profoundly changed our lives.
I was in an abusive marriage and had to end the relationship, which then became a high conflict divorce. Fees and poor advice from my first attorney left me financially and emotionally bankrupt. Because we share a child, my ex continues to file motions and use the system post-decree. There would have been no way I could afford ongoing legal representation until I was made aware of Bridge To Justice. If it were not for Bruce and his highly knowledgeable, logical, efficient, and creative approach I would most certainly be in a very bad situation on all levels. Even more importantly, without Bruce's support my daughter would likely be spending quite a bit more time with her other parent. Bruce has helped me navigate the muddy waters with a fact-not-feelings, skillful manner that has been extremely reassuring and effective. The fees are more than reasonable. I am truly appreciative of Bruce's services, and those of his team, and am so grateful that Bridge To Justice is an option for those of us who could not otherwise receive legal assistance.
Last week with the tireless efforts of Molly Jickling, my ex husband was served with a permanent protective order and admonished for long term, chronic psychological/emotional abuse towards myself and the children.
This is the first week in years I have felt a sense of calm in my nervous system because communication with him has stopped. I can not find the words to express my deep gratitude to you all at bridge to justice for the work you do and the support you offer. I potentially still have a long road ahead but now feel empowered with hope.

I will forever be grateful for the resources that led me to Bruce!
Bruce is very comforting, collected, and his clarity helped me to maintain focus during a very difficult case. From his representation I learned knowledge is your power and to focus on facts over feelings. I am privileged to have witnessed Bruce respectfully command the courtroom with his expertise and knowledge of the case. I would not have been able to properly protect my family without his help. Bruce is an exceptional attorney operating in Excellence! I was proud to have Bruce representing my family! -Forever Grateful

Bridge to Justice was more than just legal help during an incredibly long battle. The few words expressed here cannot effectively convey the gratitude I have for Bruce Wiener. Without his help, I would not have been able to defend myself in a contentious divorce dispute. Bruce's dogged determination, his limitless empathy and compassion and his sharp legal mind was the difference in seeing me through a lengthy, arduous process. If not for Bridge to Justice I could not have sustained this battle, both financially and emotionally. Through Bruce's efforts I was able to reach a resolution to a taxing, complex issue. I strongly recommend Bridge to Justice/Bruce Wiener and am forever grateful for his help.
I found Bridge to Justice and Bruce Wiener through a series of serendipitous recommendations. I was lucky enough to have Bruce arguing my side with his calm demeanor and his quiet logic. In a system that can appear heartless and irrational, Mr. Wiener's voice is sure and sound. He is capable and understanding while practical in advising possible outcomes based upon his experience and knowledge of the law.

"I cannot put into words the immense gratitude I feel for having found Bruce Wiener at Bridge to Justice. After years of litigation in a very complex custody case I was unable to continue to pay my previous attorney her fees. I was fortunate to have Bridge to Justice take my case. From day one everyone at Bridge to Justice was friendly, understanding and thorough. Family court can be exhausting and incredibly stressful and not only did Bruce handle the difficult challenges my case presented professionally, he did so with grace and compassion. He was able to build and keep my trust in him and his abilities and all the while keep me grounded and confident."

"As a client/mother, I would like to let everyone know how much help Bruce Wiener and Bridge to Justice has been to me.
First of all, my husband and son were removed from my house due to physical abuse. Mr. Wiener was very professional in all our court hearings. He was always well prepared for each hearing and listened to my pleas that the PPOs [Permanent Protection Orders] be placed on both individuals. With the impending divorce, after many years of living in domestic abuse, I acquired Mr. Wiener’s services for this, as well. Again, Mr. Wiener has listened to my requests, following through with emails to my soon to be ex-husband's attorney. Working closely with Mr. Wiener for several months now, I would highly recommend him. His professionalism was noticed by others in and out of the court room. I was one of the individuals who fell into the crack of not being able to get free legal aid in Colorado. Mr. Wiener’s non-profit, Bridge to Justice, is providing me service at a reduced rate making it possible for me to hire him for both my divorce case and the orders of protection."
