Minor issue could have been major headache
The State had sent me conflicting information in the mail (in a very private and sensitive matter) that could have created major problems for me down the road. Not knowing where to start, I turned to Evelina for assistance in sorting it out. Without hesitation, she and her team dug into why the State had differing information in separate databases and completely cleared up my issue. Had she not taken the time to contact multiple people/departments, I could have run into much bigger problems down the road. Cheers to her for taking the heavy weight off of my shoulders and being sensitive to my situation.

Excellent Attorney, very helpful.
Evelina Ruszkowski is a wonderful Attorney. She has been invaluable to me in dealing with my father's estate. She has guided me through the probate paperwork when assistance was needed. It was very comforting to know I had a someone to turn to with questions. I would highly recommend hiring Attorney Ruszkowski for estate/probate cases.

Dedicated, hardworking excellent lawyer!
After a car accident in 2017, Evelina was there to help me through such a difficult time! She was exceptionally hardworking on my case, and always kept me updated with what was happening throughout my case. I could not have asked for a better lawyer, and a better outcome for my case. I know I made a smart choice going to Pat Prue Law Group having such great hands handling my case. I am blown away by all the hard work you did on my behalf and I will always be grateful for all of your efforts. Thank you Evelina.

If you are looking for exceptional legal counsel, Evelina is who you're looking for!
Evelina Ruszkowski is by far, an exceptional Attorney. Evelina took on a Probated Estate case with a multiple tier (meaning: it went from Estate to a Trust) for me that was far from easy, and had come from a previous office as well. So right in the middle of chaos, she took this probate case on in force as if she'd been working on it the entire duration. To state my case came with many challenges is an understatement, and her professionalism and knowledge shined through. Evelina handled this in a timely manner, always keeping me informed as to all of what was transpiring as well as making what was an extremely stressful situation for me, not as stressful, by going far and beyond for me what other attorneys had not previously done. Her charisma and love for what she does is very apparent. Evelina is a go getter! I highly recommend Attorney Ruskowski to any and all I speak to. Evelina is also licensed in more than one state which helped me tremendously. If there is anyone you would want working for you as your Legal Counsel, Evelina is the one! I can't thank her enough.

The support of amazing clients like you is integral to my growth as an attorney. It's been a pleasure to work with you, so please, give me a call anytime if there's ever something else that I can do for you. Sincerely, Evelina M. Ruszkowski

Excellent Lawyer
Evelina made a very difficult situation much easier for me. From the moment I met her she was willing to help me in any way she could, even if I didn't retain her services. I did hire her and she always kept me informed on my case, even if there was nothing to report. It was a pleasure to work with her and I would definitely use her for any future legal needs.
