RUTH N. BUZZARD
FAMILY LAW / WILLS & TRUSTS / PROBATE
Ruth received her Juris Doctorate from John F. Kennedy School of Law in 1991. She is a member of the California and Contra Costa Bar Associations, as well as the CCCBA’S Family Law Section. “I started working for a law firm in Walnut Creek in 1985,” Ruth says, “and I saw the impact attorneys had on peoples’ lives. I knew I could be a positive influence.” She began her own practice in 1992 with offices in Lafayette and Brentwood, moving exclusively to Brentwood in 1997.
Ruth stresses her firm commitment to assist people, especially the children, giong through one of the most difficult times in their lives – the breakup of their family. On the upside, she enjoys putting together estate plans (Wills and Living Trusts) to provide people with peace of mind.
Ruth receives annual recognition from County Judiciary for accepting court appointments as Military Personnel Representative under Title 50. Noting that her clients come from all walks of life, Ruth feels that her career contributes to “helping people” consistent with her religious faith.
