Ruth A. Spalter
Attorney at Law
WHAT CLIENTS AND PEERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT RUTH
Ruth and I worked together for 10 years. Her ethics are impeccable as are her work habits. Ruth really knows her way around the bankruptcy code, and has litigated in this field. While working with her on bankruptcies I often found myself deferring to her judgment. I should also mention she is an extremely competent family law lawyer whose skills should not be over looked.
Mark Patterson - Newton Kight, LLP
"We knew the minute we met Ruth that she was the one to represent us. She was tenacious from the start, and gave us the feeling of relief knowing we were in very capable hands. Family matters can be sensitive as well as frustrating - Ruth always kept a calm and reassuring demeanor about her which kept us going when we were feeling angry and resentful about the case. She fought for us when we needed it the most and to hear the words "Case Dismissed" from the judge only elevated our admiration for Ruth even more. Hugs were in order! We wouldn't hesitate to hire Ruth again if we have another situation arise that required her services. We highly recommend Ruth and can't thank her enough for the terrific way she handled our case."
Craig and Katie McCoy, Lynnwood, WA
"Ruth Spalter represented me in a protection order dispute and divorce. She was very interested in my story and in providing the very best defense. In every court appearance, each different judge found in my favor. I attribute Ruth's thoroughness, expert organization, and professional presentation with the positive outcomes I experienced. My divorce settlement went well and today I have a growing nest egg for retirement and a steady income from my settlement. I highly recommend Ruth Spalter. She is a very hardworking individual who treats her clients like family."
"I would recommend Ruth Spalter to any friend needing a Family Law Attorney. She handled my son's divorce and child custody case in a very effective, professional, and timely manner. She let him know at every turn where he was in the case, what she needed from him, and what he could expect next. She gave expert advice, did not 'over spend' the retainer fee, and, most importantly, was able to achieve the results we hoped for."
Mary Ervin Mill Creek, WA
"We have benefited over the years from Ruth A. Spalter's experience and guidance. In all our legal decisions Ruth has guided us with the very best advice in making our choices. Ruth is a top attorney among many choices, she is always our 1st choice."
Gary P. and Michelle D. Vangen
Ruth was recommended to us by a friend who had won a difficult custody case through her. Ruth came up with a very creative way in my friend's case to win custody of her stepson. She used the same creative thought processes to help us win custody of our then two year old granddaughter, who was in jeopardy. Ruth is very honest, tenacious and principled, and not a day goes by that our gratitude for her help at the proper time is not appreciated. No price can be put on watching our now eight year old granddaughter flourish and grow in a stable home and school. Ruth is in the business of helping people work through the difficult and emotional processes, and we thank her.
Terry and Suzanne Williams
As grandparents of three children that were left in a life crisis due to drug and alcohol abuse by their parents, we sought legal counsel. Our first encounter with a local lawyer it became obvious we were in over our heads and that we needed more help. We were given Ruth Spalter’s name by a peer lawyer who highly recommended her for the specific issues we were having. Her swift actions led to us taking custody of our grandchildren. With that we thought it was over but with Ruth’s help any additional legal issues were quickly resolved with compassion and understanding.
My family and I all feel that Ruth displayed an exceptional amount of wisdom, sincerity, tenacity, passion, and professionalism through the trial and I have witnessed it from the beginning.
My son’s future is much more safe and secure due to Ruth’s efforts and for that I am extremely grateful. The more I think about the outcome of trial, the happier I am with it. Ruth is a true professional.
My family law case left me with a lot of stress, questions and uncertainty. I worked with several firms before I finally found Ruth Spalter. Ruth is very prompt and professional. During our office consultation the atmosphere and the way I was greeted made me feel like a very important client and they took consideration for any conditions I had at the time. After the meeting I decided to hire her for my case and have no regrets - which can be uncommon in these types of circumstances. Ruth and her team worked diligently to bring a proper and complete conclusion to my complex case. Everything since then has been smooth and my family is finally healing.
