Steve Ruffalo is one of the best lawyers I have ever seen. He is knowledgeable, honest and full of integrity and can relate to most people regardless of their background. He is down to earth but is extremely aware of the law as it relates to the particular issues in your case. Always kept the parties involved in the case informed.

I've been on Avvo for 3 years, and gotten advice from dozens of lawyers, but this is the first time I was compelled to write a review! Wow!!! Steven Ruffalo is as brilliant as they come! I am involved in a case where I am suing a heating contractor and his LLC for shoddy workmanship, and causing my basement to flood. Well, being shielded by his LLC, and other complicating factors, I didn't quite know how to proceed. Mr. Ruffalo not only provided me with invaluable information and resources, he named other money damages I would be entitled to as well! Because I was concerned about legal costs, he constructed a cost efficient way he could proceed with the case. Mr Ruffalo seems to be a lawyer's lawyer; like he could be at any Ivy league school teaching law. I am a tough grader who rarely gives A's. Mr. Ruffalo gets an A+!

I have worked extensively with Mr. Ruffalo, and highly recommend him as an experienced litigation attorney. He is skilled, knowledgeable, aggressive and an excellent trial lawyer whom I had the pleasure of learning many things from. I would recommend him for complex litigation matters and those involving municipal clients.
