William E. Ruffier

Partner / Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer

“Preparation, ingrained in me from my youth, is the cornerstone of my approach as a personal injury lawyer. I refuse to be out-prepared or outworked—I channel everything I have to ensure my clients’ success. That’s my unwavering promise.”
– Bill
