    Bacdl can’t even get a meeting w the CJ and the press doesn’t bother to call for quotes on court issues anymore. Zero credibility.

    Bruce Lyons is an amazing and skilled attorney and he has always been a credit to our profession. He has menored many young lawyers and has always been willing to give of his time when requested by his colleagues. I am happy to see Bruce get the recognition that he deserved and I thank him for the many contributions that he has made to lawyers throughout South Florida.

    I agree. Bruce is a true gentleman and a great lawyer. Broward County would be not such a shithole to work in if there were more lawyers like Bruce Lyons.

    Bruce made his bones as senior attorney defending the likes of Lansky and Capone. This award is long overdue. Stop the griping.

    Why can’t people in the legal community in Broward be happy for one of their colleagues when they are recognized for their achievements over several decades of work? Why is it always the case that people on this blog think that it is more important to be critical and demeaning of others than complimentary and supportive? Why not celebrate someone’s success that deserves recognition and not rush to say the most offensive or demeaning comment about that person? Why? Congratulations Bruce. I am very happy for you.
