    I have known Eric Ruff for over 20 years. I retired from the bench after more than 23 years as a county court judge and as a circuit judge. Mr. Ruff appeared before me in numerous areas of civil litigation in state court. He now specializes in Bankruptcy. Although that is a matter of Federal Jurisdiction, I am aware that he has an excellent reputation in that area and I would highly recommend him.

    WE HAD A GREAT EXPERIENCE WITH ERIC RUFF! We were feeling like there was no way out of our financial situation and when we met with Mr. Ruff we immediately felt a sense of control again. He was honest and obviously wanted to help us get out of trouble. He's friendly and funny and makes you feel like it will be ok. My husband and I couldn't be happier with the services we received. Kyle and Lisa were great too!

    I just received my final discharge papers concerning my filing of bankruptcy. After researching I chose Mr. Eric ruff for my attorney and was very glad that I did. He is exceptionally knowledgeable about Fl. bankruptcy law and is well versed in the process. He was very clear in his explanation of what was needed by me and made this ordeal very simple. I at first chose to not follow his advice about one debt but eventually went with his advice and again I am very happy I did. He is very professional and personable at the same time and I felt very comfortable in our meetings together. Surprisingly, he is a very honest and reasonably priced attorney that I highly recommend.

    Filing bankruptcy is kind of depressing, something you hope you never have to do. When my wife and I realized that filing for bankruptcy was necessary, an attorney friend of ours recommended Eric Ruff. With tails between our legs, we met with Eric. I must say, I never thought the process of filing bankruptcy could be so, dare I say, enjoyable. Eric Ruff was prepared and knowledgeable and made the process easier than I thought possible with his very affable personality and great sense of humor. M

    Attorney Eric S. Ruff is informed and competent in all matters of bankruptcy law. At a time when the stress and emotional upheaval of financial matters seem insurmountable, it is critical to consult with proper professionals. Initially, that can be a financial counselor. However, the next step sometimes necessitates survival by legal means. Whether the need to pursue bankruptcy is the result of circumstances beyond your control or poor financial practices, having an experienced and knowledgeable attorney is an absolute must. My wife and I never fathomed that we would one day find ourselves in such a predicament. Fortunately, we discovered the professional and caring guidance of Eric Ruff. After years of practicing bankruptcy law, he has developed a uniquely systematic procedure for guiding the novice through the legal maze. Mr. Ruff's organized and thorough approach to helping us through this experience came at a time when we felt deeply discouraged and unsure of what to do next. We respectfully recommend bankruptcy attorney Eric S. Ruff.
