Ohio Insurance Attorneys on Your Side

Battling with a giant insurance company is hard work. Insurance companies have unlimited resources, they have all the time in the world, and they hire the best and toughest lawyers they can find.

You need to level the playing field. Rutter & Russin doesn't do probate work, handle divorces, represent criminal defendants, incorporate businesses, or prepare tax returns. We only do one thing — we fight insurance companies.

We only represent you, the policyholder, never the insurance industry.

Where do you turn when you've suffered a loss?

Feeling overwhelmed? You've suffered a devastating loss, the kind of loss that you bought insurance to cover. But now the insurance company is acting like you're the enemy. They are besieging you with document requests, ignoring your questions, and asking for an examination under oath. Maybe they've even hired a lawyer to represent them.

Who is watching out for your interests? Where can you turn for help?

For almost 30 years, Rutter & Russin has represented people like you — insureds who have suffered a loss, but find themselves battling with an insurance company they thought was their "good neighbor."

Our Billing Structure

We will provide an initial consultation at no charge to evaluate your insurance problem. If we accept your case, no upfront charges will be billed. If we succeed in resolving your claim, we will receive a percentage of the amount paid by your insurance company. This is called contingency billing.
