A truly God-sent lawyer for me
I am very grateful that Mr. Rutter helped me through my divorce case. From day one and throughout the case, I noticed his professionalism, honesty and good heart. Not many lawyers have his patience and dedication towards helping his clients. I highly recommend Mr. Rutter to anyone who is seeking an attorney.

Tough, Knowledgeable, Dependable, and Highly Recommended
So happy I hired Mr. Rutter, he put my mind at ease and walked me through the divorce process every step of the way. He is responsive, competent, and aggressive when it counted. To say he goes above and beyond to do what’s right and fight for his clients is an understatement. He knows his stuff and he worked hard for me, I appreciate that. I would definitely work with him again if needed.
