    Attorney Profile

    As a partner at Viola Law Firm P.C., Robert J. Bruening is dedicated to serving clients in San Mateo, California. He focuses his practice on family law, handling cases that involve marital dissolutions, child custody and visitation, property disputes, spousal and child support, and domestic violence prevention.

    After earning a Bachelor of Arts in history from the University of California, Davis, Mr. Bruening went on to attend Creighton University School of Law. From there, he received a Juris Doctor in 2000.

    Mr. Bruening knows that going through a divorce is stressful for all involved parties and he has committed his legal career to helping guide families through this difficult time. He understands that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for family law matters, which is why he approaches each case with an open mind and listens to his clients' goals. Mr. Bruening works closely with his clients and strives to help them fully understand their options and reach resolutions that fit their immediate and future needs.

    Over the course of his career, Mr. Bruening has achieved high rates of success in helping his clients achieve favorable outcomes to their legal issues. His notable successes include protecting a client's stock from marital property division, getting a premarital agreement invalidated and arranging for a parent to receive more visitation after the other parent filed a move-away order request. Mr. Bruening is admitted to practice before the United States District Courts for the Northern and Eastern Districts of California, the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit and the Supreme Court of California

    Staying active in the legal community is a priority for Mr. Bruening. He is a member of the American Bar Association and the San Mateo County Bar Association.
