Mr. Bothwell handled [the case] deftly from its inception.

Judge James V. Selna, United States District Court

Orange Unified School District v. C.K., Case No. SACV 11-01253 JVS (MLGx) August 6, 2012

Mr. Bruce Bothwell has truly been an excellent attorney. His knowledge, expertise, and effective strategizing in dealing with the school district proved to be invaluable as he was able to secure a solid educational program for our son. Mr. Bothwell is a true professional with immense integrity and compassion in his practice. He provided confidence and reassurance to my wife and I during a time filled with stress and uncertainty. His guidance allowed us to endure a difficult ordeal. Bruce also was accessible answering every question that we had making it easier for us to be prepared for what was unexpected. We truly appreciate Mr. Bothwell for the exceptional job he has done and highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal representation.
Thank you Bruce!

Bruce is the best! We have had the pleasure of having Bruce Bothwell represent our son for the last 4 years. He has always been professional, honorable, and a class act. He understands situations intuitively and is patient in his explanations of how the law works. He has always been prompt in handling delicate matters and I have been forever grateful for his understanding and compassion toward our case. Thanks to Bruce’s successful negotiations over the years, our son has received the services and support he needs to thrive in his educational setting. I have always appreciated Bruce’s honesty and integrity. He gives it to us straight so we can make thoughtful decisions. We look forward to our continued relationship with his firm!

My husband is also an Attorney so we were VERY selective in choosing the right Attorney. In fact, we interviewed several before hiring Bruce. From the moment I first spoke to him it was clear he had a significant amount of experience and success with LAUSD. Throughout the process he was professional, listened to our concerns and ideas, and was easy to get a hold of. I should add that the LAUSD representative said that Bruce will always go the distance in court. We would not hesitate to recommend Bruce to prospective clients. We will definitely use him in the future.

As the parent of a child with special needs I have experienced the challenging process of navigating the system for the services he needs. Two years ago my son’s school proposed discontinuing services and the regional center was not willing to offer any support. After talking to different attorneys and losing hope I was fortunate to meet Bruce. I still remember the day of that meeting, Bruce was very professional and understanding. He explained the process thoroughly and the possible outcomes. It was a big difference from previous experiences trying to retain representation. Bruce developed a skillful strategy that presented my child’s needs and the inadequate support he was getting. Thanks to Bruce, my son started receiving in home ABA therapy, and his school services not only continued, but we got the same ABA provider to work with him at home and at school. I also obtained reimbursement from the school district. Working with Bruce was the best choice I could make as a parent. Legal fees were reasonable and well worth it, and I only regret not doing it sooner. To this day I can always count on his honest advice and I am forever thankful to him for all he did for my child and our family.

Our family has been so thankful to have chosen Bruce Bothwell to represent us. Despite our difficult case, he fought for us till the end and made sure we were able to keep our ABA program with the same agency until our daughter terminated her program. He is a person of integrity and professionalism and he believes in helping the families to obtain the services your child deserves. He is extremely knowledgeable and has excellent communication and negotiation skills. He will guide you through the process and with his extensive experience will provide you with the best legal advice that will determine the outcome of your case and in turn the services that will help your child’s progress and development for the future. We are so grateful with his help and all that my daughter has achieved. I hope that your family will never need to get an attorney, but sometimes things do go wrong with the school district and you will need an attorney to help you obtain what your child is legally entitled to. You will need to retain one of the best attorneys and with proven results, and that would be Bruce.

Our family was having a difficult time with the Los Angeles Unified School District. They would not provide the services that our son needed. We contacted Bruce for help. It was such a blessing to talk to someone who understood what we were dealing with on both a personal and on a professional level. Bruce was able to secure the services we needed for our son from the school district. That was a very satisfying moment. Bruce helped us through a very difficult time and continues to be a wonderful advocate for our son. I would recommend him very highly as an advocate for your family.

There are individuals that you come across during your parenting journey who leave a lasting impression and fondly remember.  Bruce Bothwell is one of those individuals.  I’ve retained Bruce’s services twice – when my son was in preschool, and again several years later during his teenage years.  I was pleased with both experiences.  After enduring so much stress with my son’s inappropriate educational placement, Bruce secured an ABA program.  His representation and dedication eliminated the stress and brought hope for my son’s future.  Bruce is professional, courteous, and honest.  His communication skills are excellent, and he always responds promptly to questions or concerns.  I am grateful to Bruce and highly recommend him to other families.
