It was a real pleasure to work with a professional team with attorneys Robert & Alyssa Ruge. From the time I contacted, Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group the whole process settled in only six months. Attorney Robert Green explained to me everything about the process and paralegal Nataly kept me updated all the time, I would definitely recommend Kemp, Ruge & Green for future law issues. Thank you so much, the Humphries family.

Excellent Attorney and Staff
I hired the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group to handle my auto accident injury case. Attorney Alyssa Ruge and Paralegal Sommer St. Croix were fantastic throughout the entire ordeal. They were professional and caring and always available to answer any questions or direct me towards getting the best medical care. They made the ordeal as stress free as possible so I could focus on healing and getting my life back to normal.

Best attorney ever!
What should have been a simple case turned ugly when people weren’t being honest. Alyssa wouldn’t stop until the truth was told by all parties! Simply amazing firm and employees and the communication was awesome.

Made Sure We Recieved The Best Possible Care
When my children were involved with a car accident I called Alyssa because I was completely clueless on what to do and the first thing she asked was if my girls were okay and after checking on them she explained the whole process and scheduled an appointment to meet up and go over everything. After deciding to persue the case they (Tiffany and Rebecca) kept me informed. Alyssa wanted to make sure that my girls got other best possible outcome and they did. She cared more about taking care of my girls then the money. I would reccomend them to anyone needing an attorney and I already have they too were very happy with them.
