About Me

Michael Ruttle graduated summa cum laude (top 5%) from Whittier Law School in 2012, with a concentration in International & Comparative law. There, he served as President of the Moot Court Honors Board, and was a member of the Whittier Law Review. During law school, Michael participated in the Phillip C.

Michael graduated with a B.A. from California State University, Long Beach in 2006.


Prior to law school, Michael spent years living and working abroad.
