Ruth received her law degree from the University of Minnesota and has been helping injured and disabled clients since 1980. She practices in the following areas of law:

Workers Compensation:

  • Denied Benefits

Social Security:

Sometimes your injury or disability could involve more than one area of law and Ruth knows how these work together.

She knows what steps need to be taken to make sure your rights are not endangered. She is active in the Minnesota State Bar Association and past chair of the Civil Litigation Section.

Ruth has published articles in professional journals, including helping a committee rewrite Minnesota Jury Instructions for Civil Trials.

Chris Carpenter did a wonderful job helping me with a knee injury sustained during work. When surgery came into question the employer/worker's comp dropped all support. Chris was able to help with the settlement. I would highly recommend to anyone!
