Ruth Law Office
I recently went through a very difficult time and hired Robert Ruth to handle my case. He did an incredible job with everything and continued to give me peace of mind throughout the entire process. He made it VERY easy to discuss my case and never made me feel like I was less of a person because of my actions. I would absolutely highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of a great lawyer.

Rob Ruth provided a well constructed defense for my husband. He was thorough, knowledgeable, concise, and never failed to provide us with quick communication and focused attention. Rob's attention to the details of our case and willingness to familiarize himself with my husband's character gave us a great amount of peace of mind. On the days we were in court, Rob showed himself to be fully competent and confident when speaking with others, including the prosecutor and the judge. We were always kept aware of communications involving our case and Rob also spoke to both of us, with my husband's permission, before filing motions. His ability to work with and for us meant that we received justice in the truest sense of the word.

Save yourself
He was appointed to me as a public defender with the federal courts however in my case he not once had any compassion or understanding regarding my conviction. I was able to hire a real attorney and believe me you get what you pay for. Wasted
