I began my legal career in the small criminal law firm of Pizzitola, Hinton and Sussman. I was licensed to practice law in November 1982. Initially I was handling both criminal cases, as well all of the divorce and family law cases which came through the firm. As time passed, the emphasis of my practice shifted more to being predominately family law matters, and then entirely family law matters. In June 1990, I opened my own solo family law practice under the name Bruce C. Zivley, Attorney At Law, and became board certified in the field of family law in 1991. I have successfully assisted thousands of clients over the past thirty years with their family law matters.

"Bruce handled my divorce. He was efficient and effective, always responsive and accessible. He provided great advice and kept the discussion fact-based and objective when I was occasionally tempted to focus on emotional aspects of the situation.*"
