Introduction: Bruce W. Boerst Jr.
Founder & Managing Member
Regarded by some as the "work hard/play harder" of the legal profession, Bruce gained fame (or, so he thinks) as having become one of the youngest attorneys in the State of Ohio. He began his legal career at the young and wild age of 22 yrs. old. While he won't believe you, he is no longer 22. He is, well, let's say "seasoned" now.
Regardless, Bruce displays everlasting energy, unmatched competitiveness, and an unwillingness to sit the sidelines during any thrill-seeking and/or challenging adventure.
After working many years for a large law firm, and having eventually come to the conclusion that working in a law firm is not fun, he started The Boerst Law Firm in 2009 with the modestly stated ambition of completely changing the way law is practised.
Apart from his well-deserved reputation as a shameless self-promoter, Bruce is actually a lawyer too. His unparalleled achievements are in Personal Injury and Criminal Defense (including OVI/DUI Defense).
He may be the closest thing we have to Harvey Specter, in Ohio. (You're welcome, Bruce. I'll take my $100 bribe in $20's).
Bruce represents those seriously injured or killed by the negligence of others. He also focuses his time representing individuals charged with crime(s) and truly believes in "innocence until proven guilty."
What sets Bruce apart? You'll know exactly why he is the "Best of the Best" and a NTL "Top 100 National Trial Lawyer" the moment you step foot into his Firm. You're not treated like a "client". Rather, you're treated like a close family member and are immediately overcome with the feeling of security and importance.
Bruce was not spoon-fee. His parents weren't lawyers. He wasn't given a law firm. He understands the value of the money he charges you. Bruce grew up with limited means to two parents who made him work for everything he received. (Thank you Mr. & Ms. Boerst). Bruce often reminds me of the times, back in his college-days, he would scrounge for change in his 1989 Buick Park Ave, with 280,000 miles, in order to pay for a fast-food cheeseburger.
As managing partner of The Boerst Law Firm, Bruce is treated by all the staff with a complete lack of respect, just the way he likes it. He says he's "happy as a clam" and only regrets that he never got the chance to see Freddie Mercury perform live.
In order of importance: He is a God loving man. He is proudly 4th in charge of his household consisting of three beautiful gals. He is relentless. He is tireless. He is your attorney. If not, you'll wish he was.
At The Boerst Law Firm, law is done differently.

When asked "what do you enjoy about the work you do?", Mr. Boerst responded: "Simple. I make a living helping others. I did not grow up with money and come from very humble beginnings. I remind myself everyday that each client is spending hard-earned money and each client's situation is likely the most important thing going on in their life. It is my duty to assist them. I respect their trust in my representation and, believe it or not, I thoroughly enjoy what I do!"
