Excellent divorce attorney
I hired Attorney Ruth Noble for a divorce I knew was going to be nasty and very time consuming, after being with my husband for 34 years...she was more than knowledgeable, helpful, always available for my questions, of which I had many, and the outcome for me was more than I expected. I cannot thank her enough for helping me through this very stressful time. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal advise.

A Must Have
My divorce/custody battle couldn't have been more contentious. Ruth was actually my 3rd attorney on my case, it had lasted over 2 years. I wish I would have found her in the very beginning. She was able to do the unimaginable even when we couldn't get my entire file from my previous attorney. Together we worked late to make sure the very best outcome happened. I felt beyond prepared thanks to her extra effort in my case. Very well communicated, which we all know is needed in such a high stress time. Very knowledgeable. Very dedicated. Honestly, she probably works to hard for the appreciation I'm sure she sometimes receives, but that's what everyone should look for when finding an attorney. I am beyond thankful for her and am finally living a peaceful life with my kids! She gave us the peace we so desperately needed at an affordable price!

Best Attorney Ever!!
Ruth took on my divorce case over 2 years ago. Stood by my side through thick & thin! She is powerful, determined, kind and very through. Had my back at every corner. She will work for you on her weekends, holidays if it’s best for you. She always put her clients first. Love Her

Looking for a great lawyer? Ruth Noble is who you need.
We recently hired Ruth Noble as our attorney and found out she was better than her reviews. Her experience and knowledge of the laws and court system was exceptional. She is a very intelligent person as well as a great communicator. We were well prepared for our day in court and felt confident that we would win. Which we did.

Deb on the one star review is opposing party
Deb is the opposing party. Ruth Noble is my attorney and is the reason she rated her a one star. I gave Ruth five stars. She will fight till the end for you.

Fully Committed Powerhouse!
I was referred to Ruth by a close friend. Prior to hiring her to handle my divorce case, she provided me an honest evaluation on the potential outcomes. What should have been a quick resolution extended for over a year, Ruth was always one step ahead to ensure we moved forward and protected my best interest. She has an immense knowledge of the law, combined with her experience and determination to do what’s best for her clients. She was always receptive to hearing my input and turning them into actions. Though tremendously busy, she made me feel like my case was her top priority and put in countless hours to go on and above. Ruth is a powerhouse of an attorney and one you definitely want representing you.

Best Divorce Attorney
I could not recommend Ruth enough. Her forthrightness and immense knowledge of law, accompanied with her experience and determination to do what's best for her client is unmatched. There's good reason she's highly respected in the area. Ruth worked diligently to get caught up with the details of my divorce after I had switched attorneys and I am grateful I did! Working with Ruth and her paralegal, Kristin, made the stressful process as manageable as possible for me. Our settlement was far better than anything I was told by other attorneys and I owe that to Ruth. She is a powerhouse of an attorney and most definitely someone you want representing you in any legal matter.

Best in Bay City
I was referred to Ruth by an attorney family friend. Not only did Ruth help get me through a high asset and lengthy divorce, she continues to fight for me every step of the way. She knows her law, is smart as a whip, and is highly respected in the area and courtroom. You can see and feel the respect she gets the minute she walks in the County building from the security guards and staff to the judges. She and her assistant Kristyn get the job done and do so in a timely manner. I almost always got a response within the same day. Her staff is friendly and courteous. I have recommended Ruth to several of my friends. If you want a knowledgeable lawyer who doesn’t mess around and gets the job done contact Ruth, you won’t be disappointed! She’s the best!

I have used Ruth numerous times over the last 12 years. I have also recommended her to many people. She is straight forward and will always tell you how it is. She’ll answer your questions and get back to you in a reasonable time. Ruth was recommended to me by a friend and I’m thankful that she did.

| Consulted Attorney
I consulted Ruth Noble in regards to retrieving information surrounding an open case not filed by the Bay County prosecutors office following my son's car accident. She helped me get the case closed and signed off by the prosecutor within the same day of consultation, which otherwise had been in limbo since May 2017. Ruth was efficient and pleasant to work with and went above and beyond to help me finally retrieve documents required to collect my son's car and belongings. Thank you Ruth for your time and effort.

Grandparent memories
I was able to obtain grandparent visitation for my grandson within 2 months of hiring Ruth. She is great in the courtroom. I spent almost 2 years of visitations and phone calls with my grandson. Several more times in court and continued battles with my grandsons mother. Was it worth it? Yes, my grandson died a month ago. Age 13 and without Ruth. I would not have spent those precious moments with my grandson. Without Ruth's ongoing support and knowledge about family law. I would not have had these additional memories with my grandson. Priceless memories with all of Ruth's attorney knowledge and experience showed in the court room, time and time again.
