Chris I.

I can't praise Rutter Mills law firm enough Catherine Foster is not only a great paralegal handling my lawsuit with my lawyer Dan Dallia I truly consider her like family.So many times I was depressed and in pain and she would talk me through it encouraging me to be strong.She is also going through a lot like myself and completely understands and is able to show compassion a fully healthy healthy person couldn't.The discovery she provided me amazed me,and was so thorough very professional.I consider her my friend for life!

VET -David S.

I knew it would be a long hard road to get an award from the VA for my multiple disabilities. However, the process was made so much easier with Rutter Mills. I was kept informed and able to follow the decision making process with my claim at the VA. They were always available if I had any questions and responded promptly. I was able to obtain a 100% rating, and couldn’t be more pleased with how they handled things from start to finish. I would gladly recommend them to any vet facing a situation like mine.

Ebony C.

My experience with Rutter Mills has been great. From the very beginning when I was browsing their website, to being called the same day, after giving brief information on the web chat. They handled the entire process, and I was approved within 6 months.

Jacque K

I highly recommend the Rutter Mills team from start to finish. Every single person I interacted with from the very first phone call was amazing. Any questions I had were always answered quickly, professionally and seemed genuinely invested in my well being. They made all the difference with my case, I am truly grateful we chose them!

Janice F

I'm very grateful for Rutter Mills for helping me with my case. Especially Mr. Boran and Mrs. Kathy Saunders, my amazing team. They kept me informed on on all aspects of the case, they listened to my concerns, we fought hard and won. 👏🙏
