"Keith Rutman isn't just a great lawyer—he is figuratively and literally a life saver, having saved my life twice. First in a figurative way. I was facing serous charges and was fearing the worst – a lengthy prison sentence. He applied his expert legal knowledge to secure a positive solution to my problem. It far exceeded my expectations and I received probation. He offered me essential advice on both legal and strategic matters. Mr. Rutman was always immediately available to assist me. I would expect this kind of outstanding service from any lawyer who stands at the top of his profession.
However, there is something more important than the best legal services. Mr.Rutman saved my life quite literally. I almost certainly wouldn't be alive to write this recommendation if he hadn't intervened to save me. He helped both me and my family in ways that far exceeded my expectations. He was consummately and professionally engaged in my case. But it was his personal interest in me that prompts me to write this statement concerning his excellent service.
If you find yourself in need of the best legal representation, please consider Keith Rutman first."

"Dear Mr. Rutman, I can't begin to thank you for all you have done for Jarrett and Jordan - specifically Jordan; you have gone over and above what most attorneys would do, and treated Jordan so well accepting his "I don't know what your talking about mentality". Jordan is greatly relieved it is over but I don't think he understands fully what is expected of him for the next 12 months. He is very aware of how lucky he is not to be in jail. All we can do is to continually remind him and keep him in therapy. I will keep you posted occasionally on how he is doing, without you, he wouldn't be doing at all. We all wish you the best of everything. Take care. Judy, Jarrett and Jordan"

"Mr. Rutman did a great job in my dispute over the accuracy of my criminal record against the State of California, and he got the Court to order it changed in my favor.

" An excellent attorney that gets results. Keith fights the good fight. If you are innocent and want to prove it, then look no further. Whether it is injustice at the hands of a peace officer, a misdemeanor or criminal charges, Keith delivers. He did so for me and got my case dismissed from court without a glitch. Now the plaintiffs have become the defendants and we are fighting the good fight together against injustice. Keith is trustworthy, responsive, knowledgeable and meticulous. I highly recommend him as an attorney. "
