Philosophy

Bruce takes the time to listen to his clients and once he has heard the details of the case, he offers his straight forward advice. We thank you for considering the Kunz Law Office.

Bruce grew up on a dairy farm near Callaway, Minnesota and actively farmed for a number of years. He received his undergraduate degree from Moorhead State University and law degree from the University of North Dakota School of Law.

Bruce loves the outdoors, especially boating in the summer and hunting in the fall and especially enjoys cooking and entertaining his friends and family. ​

Bruce attributes the success of his law practice in part, to his many life experiences and the wonderful stream of referrals that his office receives from the hundreds of clients and their families that he has been privileged to represent in the past. Bruce’s practice of law is broad based, but over the years his practice has tended to focus on the areas of Criminal Law, Family Law, Bankruptcy and Civil Litigation.

He is also an approved Rule 114 neutral (Mediator) for Family law and other Civil cases and has received training in Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE) and Social Early Neutral Evaluation (SENE) for family law cases and is listed on the State Roster. ​​

Bruce Kunz | North Star Lawyer

Lawyers who serve the poor without charge should be celebrated. By generously donating their time and talent, they change lives. They help people who otherwise could not afford counsel achieve justice. The Minnesota State Bar Association is tremendously proud of our members who render free legal services to low-income persons. For hours volunteered in calendar year 2019, the MSBA will give special recognition to members who provide 50 hours or more of legal services as defined in Rule 6.1(a), (b)(1) and (b)(2) of the Rules of Professional Conduct. In 2018, over 934 MSBA members were certified as North Star Lawyers. We know many more of you could be recognized this year. Members who report their voluntary service will be recognized as North Star Lawyers and included on the annual roster insert published in the May/June 2020 Bench & Bar edition, as well as in other recognition opportunities.
