"Bruce has helped me to be a better lawyer and man – and did it all by example. (And yes, Bruce has even made it a point to tell me that he would rather lead by his example than with his words). . . In my second year of private practice, I sought the . . . advice of the members of the New Hampshire Bar Association through its online 'listserv.' [S]everal members of the Bar provided helpful counsel, but Bruce went a step further by private email: he offered to review my entire draft trust as a courtesy – if only to 'keep me out of professional hot water.' I immediately accepted his selfless invitation to visit his Dover, NH office. The rest shapes our history. . . In the four years that I have now known Bruce, I have observed his unrelenting kindness and professionalism manifest in all the ways that one would expect: a fulfilling personal life -- hundreds of people who would count him colleague, friend, inspiration and even “family;” a fulfilling and distinguished professional life -- hundreds more (that are clients) who would count him trusted advisor and counselor; and, as a testament to his unresting integrity -- others still who would simply attest to sharing a mutual respect with Bruce."
"Warren asks me to continually evaluate my own understandings and the understandings of those around me. She believes the practice of law is much more significant than an attorney’s tally of wins and losses. The true wins are when the client is happy because of the significant contributions a lawyer makes. Warren inspires me to look at clients not as numbers, but, instead, as a challenge. The challenge is to work toward bettering the client and not simply a source of revenue. Warren views her practice of law as something more than career – it is a profession where the challenge is to leave the men and women she comes into contact with in a better position than when she first met them."
