As a Federal Judge for 17 years (1990-2007), Judge Bruce Einhorn has had a greater impact on every area of civil, administrative, and overall immigration and international law than any judge in U.S. history.

As a longtime civil rights activist and Anti-Defamation League leader, Judge Einhorn is very familiar with federal and state civil rights laws. He served from 1979-1990 as a special prosecutor and as Chief of Litigation for the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Special Investigations (OSI), where he conducted trial depositions and treaty negotiations in foreign countries and participated in appellate arguments in the U.S. Supreme and Federal Circuit Courts.

A brilliant man who strives for excellence and achieves success in all of his endeavors, Judge Einhorn is known for more than his judicial and humanitarian work. He is an author, a scholar and a professor of law, teaching Professional Liability and other topics at Pepperdine University School of Law. He has also enjoyed success in the entertainment industry as a Hollywood scriptwriter and consultant on movies and television shows. He was largely the basis for the character of the OSI prosecutor in the motion picture The Music Box, starring Jessica Lange, and served as a senior advisor to Steven Spielberg’s Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation.
