Ruth was both professional and compassionate when we first spoke on the phone, and she maneuvered her schedule so that I would not have to miss work. At our initial meeting, she showed me the utmost respect and listened to my concerns and questions without judgment. She took notes and didn’t waste any time. When I was done explaining my situation, she asked some questions and suggested a simple strategy in going forward. I felt so relieved after our meeting and confident that she could help me make it through such a major, life-changing event while keeping my dignity and honor.Client
