hard working and competent
Amy made us feel like we were her only case. She took the time to explain anything we didn't fully understand. She is very detail oriented, smart and hard working. She exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend Amy Ruby!

Very professional
From the start Amy had game plan to follow and everything I need in order to get custody of my child. She was very professional and well educated through many and multiple situations through our my case. End the end, things worked in my favor and I wouldn't have been able to achieve this if it wasn't was for Amy.

Excellent Attorney
I hired Ms. Ruby to help with with a PPO. She was professional, knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable while having to share very personal information. Explained the process and my options as the case progressed so that I knew what was happening. I would most definitely hire her again for other legal matters.

Fantastic service, fun, friendly, professional and knowledgeable.
Amy did a wonderful job for me when I hired her to prepare my will and set up my estate planning needs. I enjoyed meeting with her at her office and she gave me excellent advice and some options I wasn't aware of. Very professional and knowledgeable and I am totally satisfied with her work. I would definitely recommend her and would hire her again.

Amy Takes the High Road
Amy is a great listener and excellent communicator; I would not have accepted anything less when it came to securing my future with my child. Above all, Amy knows the law and, really, the law IS your best friend in this. Custody is an emotionally charged and overwhelming issue; it's easy to make rash decisions. Up against less ethical parties, one might be tempted to drag the proceedings into the mud and start swinging. But that is a weak position. You need a lawyer who will process all of that emotional content and hold it up to the light of its relevance to the letter of the law. You need a lawyer who knows and is committed to that framework, someone with a deep knowledge and a true respect for procedure. The strongest position you can take in an emotionally charged case is fighting the battle on the sturdy planks of our legal framework. That is called taking the high road. Amy Ruby knows that framework well and fights for you on those strongest of terms. I had tremendous confidence all along the way thanks to her expertise. I am deeply pleased with the outcome. It's everything I wanted.

Strategic, Knowledgeable, Bold.
I have known Amy for over 10 years. She just helped me with my divorce and I knew she would deliver just as she did. She is compassionate to the sensitive nature of what's happening, and thorough to help you best understand all your options. She is smart, and always made sure I understood what I had as possible outcomes covering all the bases. She is professional, and prepared. Attentive and always willing to go the extra mile to make me feel at ease during this difficult transition. I felt truly taken care of. When the situation called for a bold nature she was able to deliver that as well. Thank you Amy, I can't say enough about how lucky I am to have had you on my team!

Highly recommended!
Amy was knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I needed an attorney and was anxious about getting one. She was very patient with me and talked me through every detail during my consultation this morning. I am very glad I found her! She was everything I hoped for and more! I recommend Ruby Legal Solutions! D.D.

Thorough, Sharp, Organized
I wish I had hired her before my first lawyer. She has the experience, confidence and thoughtful tact to accomplish what you're looking for. I challenged her, bringing her on with not much time before "trial date" and we made things happen. I didn't get everything I was looking for but this was by no fault of Ms. Ruby. A close friend is working with her now and is thrilled at her progress. I will continue to recommend her.

A High Lawyer Recommendation - Amy Ruby
I had hired Ms. Ruby in a divorce case because child support issues had been dragging on for years which needed resolution. She worked diligently on my case to push resolution while the other party kept stalling. She is very intelligent, professional, efficient and thorough with facts; outshined my ex's slimly lawyer.

Versatile, knowledgeable and professional. Always my first call when I need legal advice.
Amy is so knowledgeable and well versed in so many areas of the law. She was my divorce attorney and I've also consulted with her on landlord/tenant matters and traffic violations. She is knowledgeable, quick to provide research and responses, and explains the processes very well. You will know exactly what to expect, what the potential outcomes are, and what you will need to do, have and understand, in order to be fully prepared for your specific situation. I absolutely recommend Amy Ruby and Ruby Legal Solutions.
