Fields of Law

Here you will find an overview of the fields of law our attorneys practice.

We Specialize In:

Criminal Law

Facing criminal charges in any circumstance can be an agonizing experience. The consequences that individuals may face in their lives as a result of a criminal conviction can be extraordinarily challenging to deal with. Whether a felony or misdemeanor, a criminal charge can have a serious impact on your career, family, finances, and future. The criminal penalties alone can often be damaging to a person’s rights and reputation, but the effects become even more serious and long-lasting when combined with the consequences that a criminal record can have on their personal and professional life.

We understand that when you are charged with a crime, your life will be affected whether you are found guilty or not. The minute we take your case, we start working hard to cover every aspect of your defense, and not only do we fight for positive results, but we also care about our clients. Contact us at Ruiz de la Torre Law Firm and let us work with you.

If you find yourself in trouble with the law, you need a lawyer.


Personal Injury Law

Injuries are an unfortunate fact of life, resulting from unexpected actions and mishaps. However, in some cases, these injuries could have been prevented had another party acted more carefully or responsibly. In these situations, the consequences on a person’s life can be severe. Whether it may be costly medical bills, income lost as a result of time spent away from work, psychological trauma, or even permanent disability, many of the common effects that serious injuries entail can be ruinous to the well-being of injury victims and their loved ones.

If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, our personal injury lawyer can help you recover compensation for your injuries as well as damage to your property. When you need assistance with medical negligence, auto accidents, and premises accidents and more, Ruiz de la Torre Law Firm can help. Our personal injury attorney is constantly working with you from start to finish ensuring that you know your rights and that you are adequately represented.
