Why Richard Ruman


I'm Richard Ruman, welcome to my website.


First, the basics -- I am a Los Angeles native; I attended UCLA undergraduate studies and found my calling at Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California at Berkeley. I have practiced law in Beverly Hills for over 35 years, most of it as a sole practitioner.


Why a sole practitioner? I don't think I originally planned it that way, but when I graduated from Law School, I joined a big firm. After a few years I did not like the regimentation and politics of a big firm. After seven or eight years of working with a partner I knew that the only way I could practice law and stay true to my conscience would be as a sole practitioner. Of course I like being my own boss, but more importantly, as a sole practitioner, I can select meaningful work and provide personal, one-on-one service without the distractions and demands of "the business." I can bring in trusted investigators, paralegals, and additional help as needed for your specific needs. But, as a one-man shop I can focus completely on my clients and am dedicated to providing effective, efficient, and affordable legal representation. 

As a sole practitioner I have enjoyed working on a wide variety of cases in different areas of the law ranging from Real Estate and Family Disputes to Personal Injury -- both in and out of court.


At this point in my life I find myself with a particular interest in cases involving Elder Financial abuse. My overall focus, however, is Family and Partnership Disputes.


If you're visiting this website, I suspect you are looking for a good lawyer. Choosing the
right lawyer is important. My experience can really make the difference. My clients receive personal attention, straight-forward analysis and advice, aggressive and well-reasoned representation, and excellent results. All cases are treated with the utmost care. I will pursue your case aggressively and represent your interests thoroughly and carefully. I love what I do and am comfortable with all aspects of civil law. Law is a discipline that requires constant learning -- new cases change the law on a daily basis and I am always reading and getting new ideas.


During my career I have enjoyed time as a Judge Pro Tem for the Beverly Hills Superior Court, taught real estate law at Mid Valley College of Law and Reseda Adult School, was president of the Medical Legal Society of Southern California and still volunteer my services to legal clinics.


However, although I love the law, I am most proud of my adult-aged twin daughters -- both of whom are physicians at UCLA. While they did not exactly follow in my footsteps, they have actively followed in our family's tradition of helping others. They also have also adopted my loyalty to my alma mater and it's an annual tradition for me, my wife, my daughters (and the sons-in-laws) to make the pilgrimage to Berkeley to witness the first Cal football game of the season.


You are welcome to contact me not only through this website, but also to pick up the phone and give me a call if you think I can be of service to you.
