About Ruth

Learn Ruth’s areas of practice.

Before going to law school, Ruth attended the University of Florida, where she majored in psychology and became a die-hard Gator fan.  After graduating summa cum laude from UF, she moved to Brevard County and worked as a legal assistant for a local real estate firm.

 

While in law school at the Florida A&M University College of Law, Ruth was the Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review and a member of the National Appellate Advocacy Moot Court Team, among many other activities.   In 2008, Ruth graduated first in her law school class and delivered the valedictory speech at graduation.  She went on to clerk for the Honorable Gail A. Randall, Administrative Law Judge for the Drug Enforcement Administration, in Arlington, Virginia.

 

Ruth returned to Central Florida in 2009, and served as an Assistant Public Defender in Orlando from 2009 to 2011.  She entered private practice in 2011.

 

Ruth believes strongly that the best lawyer-client relationships are those that function as a team.  She strives to blend the best aspects of modern and traditional approaches to the practice of law, with the goal of making practical, high-quality legal representation accessible and affordable.

Great results!! Professional easy to work with
Ruth came highly recommended to me by a friend. At my bond hearing she got my bail reduced from $100,000 to $10,000 and got the condition of a GPS ankle bracelet removed so I could go back to work and keep my job. My case was dropped without any conviction and she even had my arrest record expunged. She went above and beyond and exceeded my expectations I highly recommend hiring Ruth singer

First priority
This is the first time I have had to seek legal representation and I could not have hoped for better. Rith Singer was thorough and explained all the steps that would happen, kepping me updated as each step was made. She was very honest and patient with me and all my questions about the process for my case. I felt as if I was her first priority.

Great Attorney
I am writing this review because if anyone deserves one it is Ruth Singer. I had an inconceivable legal experience in Brevard County. When I contacted the Singer Firm. I had a conversation with Ruth Singer who I found to professional and informative. Ruth Singer quoted me an amount on what it would cost to handle my case. I found it to be more than reasonable after speaking with other attorneys. While addressing my case Ruth Singer kept me informed and updated me every step of the way. I felt confident she was on the case. When I would contact her via phone or email if not available she would get back to me asap. Ruth Singer was diligent and totally proficient. Without going into details I had a very positive outcome with my case due largely to Ruth Singer. I highly recommend her for legal counsel. Carmine

Honest, Ethical and Always kept me Informed
I retained Ruth for a business legal issue. From day one, I was given all of my options and recommendations. I understood everything about my legal issue and Ruth thoroughly prepared me for court prior to our court date. On the day of court, Ruth met us at the courthouse and made sure I was relaxed and ready. She was brilliant! The judge even made a comment (after our case) about what a great lawyer she was and how well she represented me. I would highly recommend 'The Singer Firm" for any and all legal issues. We plan on using her again soon in the near future for some personal business.
