UNBELIEVABLE... this man has no shame. and yet he is still allowed to own 2 debt consolidation businesses and still rip you off.... i can't wait when he is sentenced on december 8th. i hope they throw the book at this CROOK... i will be celebrating his demise. he has caused my family and i more financial ruin. i paid this man $6,500.00 up front and NEVER GOT any legal services in return. no return phones. he ignored me completely. he never filed the proper paper work. nothing. funny thing when i met on the consultation he was nice, yes this and that. then once i paid him, he ignored me completely. he should be banned from being self employed. the judge did the right thing in banning him in bankruptcy court. i'm counting the days to his sentencing. bye bye atherton...don't let the prisoners beat you up little guy...

What goes around comes around and around and around. One can only hope this man never practices law or conducts business again.

February 24th can't come soon enough, but it's too late for those people he was found guilty of swindling. He gives the legal community a bad name.

I hired the Debt Restructuring of America, Inc. to help my family, and he took my money and ran! I had no idea he was like this. I canceled my "contract" within the 30 day allotment (12/16/09) and it is now the 13th of January and I am still waiting for my money. The lawyer I retained in my hometown has told me that debt settlement companies are not legal to do business in the state of Colorado. DON'T GIVE HIM YOUR MONEY!

I just found out about the Atherton situation, my relation with the firm ended in Sept 2009. They took my money every month but without results, it took us 8 months to get the message. We placed a stop to the automatic withdrawls.
The letter we received said, he would be acting as a consultant but did not mention the return of any money they took from our account.

My mom worked for him and came home crying pretty much every night. Along with trying to sleep with her multiple times (he's married), and offering to PAY to sleep with her (she refused) he cussed her out on a daily basis and is an all around A* hole. I'm sure she will be so happy when she hears he's in prison.

today i happen to run into attorney here in louisville who knows bruce atherton. i asked him if he knew what happened with bruce's sentencing and he informed me bruce atherton is in a prison in new jersey and he was sentenced to 28 months there.
i was in shock that he only got 28 months for all that he did. he basically got off easy. i also heard when new jersey is done with him, he will go to trial in pennsylvania for the things he did there.
as he is in prison he is still making money under his two businesses that are debt consolidating. check the bbb they have a f- rating.
numerous complaints from customers handing over their money and not getting any services in return. deja vu...

I'm not sure what lawyer you spoke to sherlock, but Bruce is not in jail and has yet to be sentenced. His sentencing date for Pennsylvania is June 25 and he pled guilty to amended charges in PA in September, 2009. The New Jersey case has not gone to trial on any of the defendants yet. He is still working.

hi, the attorney i had spoken with is a well respected criminal attorney here in louisville who happens to know bruce. this is what he told me when i happen to run into him. since then i have spoken to other attorneys whom all seem to think bruce is in prison also.
maybe wishful thinking on their part.
if you do hear anything more, please do keep us all informed. thanks...
you seem to to be in the know.

i filed a complaint against bruce atherton 3 yrs. ago with the kba.
the letter i received today, states that mr. atherton is permanently disbarred from practicing law.
a day late and a dollar short for me. what took them so long? in those 3 years he scammed numerous clients out of their money.(and way before that)
they should have pulled his license sooner than now.
on another note, be careful, he has 2 new businesses that he owns. they are bill /credit card consolidation businesses. same m.o. takes your money and provides nothing.

yes he has made millions from ripping off people, and yes he got a very low end sentence. but i do believe it's all going to catch up with him.
if i'm not mistaken he still faces other federal charges in new jersey.
i believe in karma, and karma's a bitch. maybe he'll get a good woopin from his cell mates and be done with him.
his health isn't that great. he suffered a heart attack a few years back. maybe with all this stress, who knows, another one may come on.
he's not a tall man, as a matter of fact he has small man syndrome.(napoleon complex) he tries to make up for it by being nasty and swearing. he acts big guy tuff. small ego too in all avenue's of his life.
i do believe he will get his... either in this lifetime or the after life.
i will say if any other person had committed all the crimes he did, we would be looking at 20 years behind the slammer.
it's a shame that the justice system in kentucky plays favorites.:(

Just to clear something up Bruce Atherton has no connection at all with Debt Restructuring of America.
