“We reached out to Ruben in March 2021 to help us get an easement modification. After 11 months and much fighting with the city, we succeeded with getting the easement vacated. Ruben was quick to provide easement deeds and assist with contacting the companies and providing documents. He even gave immediate attention to altering the document so PG&E and AT&T would agree even though it was unexpected and last minute.

I found Ruben to be very knowledgeable and helpful. After I explained what I needed he quoted the project and I was very satisfied afterwards. I would recommend to family and will use agin if the need arises. Thank you Ruben.

“When I started my company, my attorney said I should work with Ruben to get my trademarks done. He is cost efficient and careful. This is something Ruben does not talk a lot about, but he is a really good business attorney, although he is probably better known as a litigator. I'm a fractional CFO and he continues to help my companies - with ideas as well as the legal side of getting the marks locked for us. Most recently my company had the opportunity to go public. We completed our IPO in November 2021, and of course there is a lot to do. Nice to have someone we trust to be part of the solution. (And, Ruben runs a large lawyer networking group, so reach out to him as well for solid referrals.)

“I was introduced to Mr. Ruiz through another attorney regarding a potential litigation issue. I found him to be very responsive and extremely knowledgeable. I have some experience with attorneys and his pricing was more than fair. He resolved the matter quickly and discreetly. I would highly recommend him.”

Why choose a boutique law firm?
More and more businesses are choosing to work with a boutique law firm like Ruben P. Ruiz PC because of the value and flexibility smaller law firms provide. Boutique law firms focus their practice on just a few areas of law, so companies know that they will be working with experienced attorneys that concentrate their practice on cases like theirs.
Being able to work directly with a team of dedicated and experienced attorneys is a key reason our business clients choose to work with us. Unlike large law firms, where new clients are often paired with inexperienced attorneys who waste valuable resources learning the law as they go, we will staff your case with seasoned attorneys who have made a career of practicing business, real estate, and employment law.
In addition to our expertise, you’ll also find us to be flexible. Freed from the rigid bureaucracy of a large firm, we can move quickly and offer creative solutions others can’t.
