Amy was both a great lawyer and a friend during a very difficult time for me and my family. She was with us every step of the way and made sure we always knew what was going on. Amy and her team, especially Patti, took very good care of us and treated us with empathy and respect. Highly recommend.

 
Maya R.
Sarasota

After being struck by a car, I was in dire need of a law firm that understood the complexities of my injuries as well as being able to help me navigate all the insurance bureaucracies I was forced to deal with. Their experience and understanding were paramount in helping me settle my claim so that I could move forward knowing I was in good hands. Don't be fooled by bravado and slick advertising that many attorneys use. Get The Ruth Law Team because they are truly knowledgeable, professional, and honest.
