  • Matthew H Green

    Katie Ruhl is an excellent immigration attorney. Not only is she totally committed to her clients, her knowledge of immigration law is very impressive. While Ms. Ruhl worked for my law firm, I was very fortunate to have such a professional and talented advocate on my team. I feel that any individual with an immigration case or appeal will be very well served by such a capable lawyer.

    I endorse this lawyer. I have supervised Ms. Ruhl's legal work for 8 years as I was director of the UC Davis Immigration Law clinic when she enrolled in the clinic approximately 2005-2006. I have since sought her assistance as her legal research and writing is of exceptionally high quality. She also is great interpersonal skills and is an effective advocate.
