Ruth Brock completes 32 years of practice in 2009. Twenty-nine of those years of practice have been spent in the Lewisville, Highland Village, and Flower Mound areas. Initially Ruth practiced law with a firm in downtown Dallas, working mainly in commercial and real estate litigation. In 1980, Ruth opened her practice in Lewisville, in the first multi-story commercial building west of I-35. In the following years the practice developed into a transactional practice with an emphasis on making the deal work and increasing client understanding of their legal transaction. In April, 2003, Ruth moved her office to its current location in Flower Mound.
While Ruth has conducted both non-jury and jury trials, and has argued before the Texas Supreme court, she discovered that her real interest and abilities lay in the transactional field. She enjoys focusing on language refinement for clear and concise documents and educating her clients on their responsibilities under the documents she has prepared.
Ruth is Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in both Residential and Commercial Real Estate. She has held this designation since 1991. The board certification designation means that the attorney has met the high standards of the State Bar of Texas in the area of specialty, including standards regarding knowledge level, years of practice, and percentage of practice devoted to real estate law.
With a substantial amount of her office hours devoted to real estate, Ruth is able to stay informed on the local residential and commercial real estate markets and trends. She works regularly with real estate developers, sellers, buyers, landlords, tenants, cities and municipalities, and property owner's associations. With extensive experience in the real estate industry, Ruth has the expertise to make the deal work.
Licensed since 1977
