Extremely Professional
He carefully reviewed all documents in my divorce case and gave me the best possible representation. He was well worth every penny.

Custody Issue
I highly recommend the Law Office of Gregory Ruster. He represented my daughter in a very, very complex custody issue involving several states. He worked very hard and was very accommodating at meeting with us and returning phone calls. My daughter prevailed with the judges decision.

Recommend Highly
I was referred to Mr. Ruster by two close friends. They were so right. Anyone dealing or going through a divorce knows the mental rollar coaster you endure. I was guided with honesty and professionalism by Mr. Ruster the entire way. With up-most respect for him, I encourage anyone going through the transition to employ him and his excellent team. The communication is superior between client and staff and the whole office deserves a superior rating.
