“As a firm, we have a strong commitment to our clients, beyond simply representing them in the courtroom. We have compassion for them and strive to help them whenever and however possible.”


Determination, dedication, and a strong work ethic—Bruce Nguyen learned the importance of these qualities at an early age.


Bruce’s parents immigrated to the United States from Vietnam to build a better life for themselves and their family. Through them and their sacrifices, he learned that success can be achieved through hard work and resolve.


He has taken those lessons to heart and to his clients at Walters Renwick Richards Skeens & Vaughan, P.C, priding himself on his ability and the opportunity to speak up for those who cannot necessarily speak up for themselves.


In the courtroom or at the negotiating table, Bruce knows that he has a responsibility to positively impact the lives of the people he represents, whether it’s suing an insurance company that has failed to pay insurance benefits, prosecuting a business for defective products or a bank for predatory lending, or pursuing justice for someone injured because of the actions of others.


Prepared, meticulous, and confident, he honors his commitment to his clients, beyond simply representing cases in the courtroom. For Bruce, every case is important because it affects the lives and rights of the people he represents, often resulting in life-altering consequences. It’s his job to protect and vindicate those rights.
