One client notes, “Ruth has demonstrated a superior level of knowledge and negotiation skill, and we have every confidence of continuing to rely on her for all such services. Ruth has been great to work with and as challenges may arise, I look forward to those future collaborations.”

As general association counsel, Ruth reviews, interprets and amends governing documents, drafts rules and regulations, reviews contracts, prepares and attends annual meetings, and enforces covenants.
