I found myself in an embarrassing and unfortunate situation. Ms Ruggles helped me in a non-judgemental manner, with an immediate plan; with immediate execution, and with a happy ending. She is knowledgeable, trustworthy, approachable, and efficient. I would recommend Ms Ruggles to anyone who has a need for an attorney.
We had a surprise on who was and was not on the title to the house after my step-father died. John gave us clear, actionable advice within an hour after I sent an email to him. I felt like I knew what legal grounds we stood on and direction about what to do next. Thank you John!
I am an attorney who specializes in medical malpractice defense in Maryland. I was named the Executor of an Estate in Sacramento County, California and rapidly learned that my Estates and Trusts experience in Maryland was not up to the task of California Probate. I searched for an experienced Estates firm to assist me through the process and found John Palley and his firm. I cannot say with enough enthusiasm how strongly I would recommend John and his firm. He was incredibly accessible, knowledgeable and supportive though the whole process. Additionally, I found his Associate and his staff to be equally accessible, helpful and professional. Thanks to John and his team for a very successful outcome!
