I have gone to Sean for legal counsel on multiple occasions. Each time, he has treated me and my problem with the utmost respect and attention and has always provided well-reasoned legal advice. He knows the law and always explains it to me in a way I can understand and use. Further, his ability to find solutions to my legal issues or point me in the right direction is unparalleled. I highly recommend seeking Sean’s counsel whether it be business or employment related or for any other legal issue you may have.
I have had the pleasure of working with Attorney Ruppert on several occasions, in both personal as well as business related matters. He is always very responsive, returning my phone calls or emails in a very timely manner…usually within a matter of an hour or two. He is extremely knowledgeable of the applicable law, analyzes the matter at hand in great detail, explains it in a way that you can understand, and then recommends the best course of action to take for each particular issue. His caring attitude and personal service just cannot be beat!!! I will continue to use the services of Attorney Ruppert for all of my legal needs, and I highly recommend him to anyone who may be in need of legal services.
