Introduction

Bruce R. Steinfeld has been practicing law for 26 years, since graduating from Emory University School of Law in 1988.  He practices exclusively in the area of Family Law. Although he is an effective and aggressive litigator, he strongly believes in the benefit of settling family law cases whenever possible, so that his clients can avoid the tremendous expense, stress, and uncertainty of litigation.  Although Bruce's primary role is that of attorney, he enjoys the educational and counseling aspects of his job as a family lawyer, as he helps to navigate his clients through one of the most frightening and stressful times of their lives.

Bruce is also registered as a Mediator with the Supreme Court of Georgia, serves as a Late Case Evaluator, is frequently appointed Guardian ad Litem by the court, to represent the best interests of children in custody matters, and is trained and certified in Collaborative Law.
