Rutledge Law Center strives to expeditiously provide its clients with extraordinary attention and a high-quality work product. Our service to the client is grounded in respect, dependability and trust. And we don't nickel and dime our patrons with petty charges for necessities like faxes, incidental photocopies, postage, or general legal research. Instead, we view the fiduciary nature of the attorney-client relationship as utterly sacrosanct -- and our clients and their interests come before the firm's each time and every time.
