Following undergraduate school, Mr. McDonald was employed with Pennzoil in various capacities in its Accounting Department, special projects Planning and Evaluation Department, and the Land and Lease Department. He owned a bar and restaurant all before entering law school.

Bruce began his legal career working for an insurance defense firm. A few years later he opened his own firm where, for over 20 years, he has been able to continue handling a wide variety of insurance defense matters, as well as representing individuals on plaintiff personal injury and insurance related matters.

That blend of work experience lends itself to a balanced real world approach to resolving many cases through mediation or arbitration, which in recent years has become a focus of Bruce's practice, helping parties settle a wide variety of civil disputes.
