C. Arthur "Brother" Rutter III

Managing Partner

Brother Rutter is one of the managing partners at Rutter Mills. He is a graduate of Harvard College, and University of Richmond’s T.C. Williams Law School, where he graduated first in his class. Brother is a high-level litigator with decades of legal experience, specializing in large and complicated auto accident and maritime cases. He has won multiple multi-million dollar verdicts in several states in high-profile personal injury cases, including the at-the-time largest Wrongful Death Verdict in the history of Virginia, and was recently lead counsel for a $3.75 M seaman’s injury settlement case. As a managing partner, Brother is a mentor to our attorneys, and is a valuable resource for all Rutter Mills clients. He is extremely active in philanthropic and non-profit organizations, especially those benefitting education and the arts. He and his wife Meredith founded The Rutter Family Art Foundation, which supports local and regional artists with exhibitions, events, and gallery space, in a 1917 historic building that is a mainstay of Norfolk’s new arts district.
