Review of Ms Amy Ruggles, Esq

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.

Amy is Awesome!!!

I met Amy through ARAG so that I could create a trust and will. She listened to my questions and addressed all of my concerns. There is a lot more to do before meeting with an attorney and I wasn’t prepared for all of the effort Amy put forth in completing all of the necessary documents. I would absolutely hire her again for any other legal needs I have in the future.

Very pleased

Amy just finished working on a trust for my wife and I. Besides being very responsive to our requests, she did the most important thing. She made sure all of our assets were titled in the trust. Every client, that I have sent to Amy, has been very satisfied with her service.
