I have to say Mr. George Ruiz hands down is a great attorney to have. He is straight forward, honest , no nonsense , aggressive and delivers the best results. I had a previous attorney before I hired Mr. Ruiz and felt my case wasn’t being represented firmly and aggressively like it should have been, once I hired Mr. Ruiz I felt so much relief and confidence about my case and sure enough Mr Ruiz got the job done. I also have to mention his paralegal Mrs. Candy Ryan always on top of everything always their to answer any questions and always keeping me posted with information. I highly recommend The Law Office of George C. Ruiz….

Attention All Military Service Members, George C. Ruiz and his staff was a beacon of hope to my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution between myself and my ex-wife seemed impossible. Not only was he able to help me and my ex-wife reach an amicable agreement without the need for litigation but his calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional support to myself and those I care about most, my children. Mr. Ruiz was able to help me successfully navigate my Military divorce and answer all of the questions surrounding it. Candy and Beau provided candid information in a very professional manner anytime I had questions in dealing with my case. I received very detailed billing reports on a monthly basis that showed where my money was being utilized. The total cost for the divorce ended up being about half the price of what other lawyers quoted me while searching for legal representation. I am eternally grateful for his services and I hereby recommend Mr. Ruiz and his office without any hesitation or reservation. From one Military member to another, this is the lawyer you want on your team if put in the unfortunate position of needing a Military divorce…..

I can’t speak highly enough in regards how smoothly filling for a divorce for my sister. They worked with us in regards setting up a payment plan that worked in our budget. Candy never left us hanging or guessing what was next. She was very professional and responsive to us. George meet us the first day, walked us thru the process and then at court with us. We never had to worry or be concerned as they always had our back. I would definitely recommend this law firm!…
