My family made the right decision!
Bill Ruffier represented my son in a dental malpractice lawsuit. From the time we first met Mr. Ruffier through trial, he was a true professional. During our trial I witnessed Mr. Ruffier navigate the entire process with expertise while continuing to be supportive of my son and our family. We are thrilled with the outcome of our trial verdict. The paralegal that assisted Mr. Ruffier provided clear and timely communication via email and phone. Anytime we visited or called the office we were greeted by courteous office staff. I highly recommend Mr. Ruffier and his groups law firm.

Fabulous Experience - Excellent Outcome
I had the good fortune of being referred to Bill and team by another attorney. Bill and his team did a great job identifying my case, answering my questions and responding to my needs. He and his team worked with me on a clear plan of action. He initiated all of the appropriate actions, followed through on every element the opposing council attempted and overcame all the obstacles. Bill and his team provided excellent council and delivered a very satisfactory result. I highly recommend Bill and his firm.

Thanks
You folks have no idea what an absolute pleasure it was to have you as my council. I’ve owned and run many different companies worldwide all with varied products, customers, suppliers, competition and risk factors. Whether it was corporate law, trademark or copyright infringement Criminal attorneys, corporate attorneys, customs attorneys, copyright attorneys, international corporate attorneys, and on and on. I hate them all. I really do. I hate them all. Most were lazy and some were just plain not there. Some never asked the right questions, so where I was the guy paying the bills I rarely had a clear picture that represented what I should or shouldn’t be doing. That type of attorney client rapport was just S.O.P., for Miami attorneys it seems, and at times it cost me dearly. I was never quite sure if my ark load of attorneys couldn’t or wouldn’t give me correct advice that at times I retained two firms simultaneously just to see if they were on the same page. Not only, in my playbook did you win my case but not for a minute was I preoccupied with what was going on behind the curtain. I wanted to thank you again for doing your job and keeping me in the Low Anxiety Zone. Bill, You made it look easy and you’ll never know how much I appreciate that. You really kept my pressure down and my morale high. I appreciate your support and your attention to detail in reviewing my paperwork and understanding why I was there, and more importantly what you needed to do, and why you were there. I wanted to express that I truly feel blessed to have found you. I don’t want you to ever think that your support and gentle nature ever went unnoticed. Thank you very much for not only staying awake, but actually paying attention to my plight.

Very knowledgeable, very easy to work with A++
I was referred to Bill and his firm by another attorney. I can't emphasize enough how easy Bill made the entire process after my traffic accident. Although I haven't worked with an attorney in the past, I was incredibly relieved how responsive Bill was to my needs and questions, and his staff was equally helpful. I had a consultation with another law firm prior to working with Bill--but I'm so glad I made the decision I did and would gladly recommend Bill and this firm to anyone.
