Biographical Info As an attorney, Bruce has been awarded the highest rating by the national lawyer-rating service, Avvo.com. Since graduating in 1994 from the University of Washington School of Law near the top of his class, Bruce has litigated over one thousand cases in a wide variety of areas of the law, with a consistent emphasis in family law. Bruce began his legal career in the courts of Pierce, King and Snohomish counties working on family law cases. Before moving to Seattle in March of 2012 Bruce started his own law firm, Pruitt-Hamm Law & Mediation Services, PS, in rural Colville, Washington, where he practiced for nearly 20 years. His clients routinely gave him high marks on their evaluations. In 2010 and 2011 his average rating was 4.9 (out of a possible 5 point scale) on whether clients would use the firm again or recommend the firm to friends and family. Bruce has been mediating cases since before he served as Co-President of the Washington Mediation Association in 1989. In the 1980s he trained judges, lawyers and therapists on how to conduct divorce mediations through the Pacific Family Mediation Institute. He provided mediation services from 1994 through 2011 in Stevens County where he was the only certified mediator in the county. In January, 2011 Bruce organized and co-led a mediation training workshop attended by now Superior Court Judge Pat Monasmith and Stevens County Family Law Court Commissioner Jessica Bodey, as well as approximately half the family law attorneys in the county. A founding member of the Spokane County Collaborative Professionals, Bruce was the first attorney in Stevens County to become certified as a Collaborative Professional and was the only one certified by the International Association of Collaborative Professionals. Bruce has been serving clients since 2007 as a certified collaborative professional and has presented at seminars on Collaborative Law and mediation as alternatives to litigation.
