Our Approach

At Ruby & Associates, we understand that family law and personal injury matters are much more than legal cases. More than most other types of cases, they are deeply personal to the people involved, and carry life-altering consequences. Our attorneys know that what they do affects not just our clients’ cases, but their lives.

Starting Where the Client Is

For that reason, our analysis of any case starts not with the law, but with the client. Our first priority is to understand the client’s history, their current concerns, and their goals for the future. When we have an understanding of what’s most important to the client, we can turn our attention to how the law will impact their situation. We understand, too, that success means more than just a favorable legal decision. Our clients are often concerned about the financial and emotional impact of their cases, and we take those needs into account when advising and planning.

Most of our clients have had limited exposure to the legal system. Therefore, they may have questions about things that are second nature to most attorneys, and anxiety about procedures and processes that can be quickly allayed with the right information. We encourage our clients to ask whatever’s on their minds; when it comes to one’s future, there really is no such thing as a silly question. We welcome the opportunity to provide them with knowledge about how their case is likely to proceed, so they can experience less stress, feel more empowered, and make better decisions.

Exploring Options and Empowering Clients

Often, there is more than one option about how to proceed in a family law case. Ruby & Associates’ depth of experience in this practice area allows us to clearly outline options, and their likely outcomes, for our clients. In situations that can be overwhelming, we strive to give the best and clearest advice possible. While guiding our clients, however, we remind them that they are in the driver’s seat, and control of the decision remains with them. It is our experience that outcomes are better when the client understands the available choices and is empowered with information and sound legal counsel.

We also remain accessible to our clients throughout the legal process Our attorneys know that being involved in a legal case can feel isolating and confusing. When questions arise, as they always do, few things are more upsetting than not being able to connect with the people who are supposed to be helping you. That’s why it’s a priority to us to promptly return phone calls and e-mails. We simply show our clients the respect and attention that we would want if we were in their place.

At Ruby & Associates, we enjoy working hard to advocate for our clients and bring about the results they are looking for. To learn more about how we can help you, contact our office at (330) 867-1405.
