Firm History

The vision for Ruttler Mills began in 2005 when Jim Ruttler was a still law student. At that time, it was a new concept that attorneys could start and succeed outside the big firm framework. Jim believed, however, that the high billing rates and high billable hour requirements needed to support the extraordinary overhead of many large firms was unsustainable. Technology, flexibility, and efficiency appeared to be the future. On these then-unusual beliefs and with a freshly minted law license, Jim Ruttler began in 2006 offering intellectual property legal services and rapidly grew his client base, now including both large and small clients.
