Ruthie is a mini Goldendoodle who hails from West Tennessee. She joined Rickard Masker, PLC full time when she was 10 weeks old to fight on behalf of puppy-plaintiffs. Ruthie is a dogged lawyer who will not pawse until her clients’ tails are wagging. Because her services are not cheap, she is passionate about completing pro bone-o work.

Following in her parents’ footsteps, Ruthie is a graduate of Vanderbilt Paw School. Ruthie’s core puppy philosophy is play hard, nap harder. Her interests outside of work include making friends with everyone, cuddling, eating treats, and barking at her reflection.

As always with the firm, Ruthie doesn’t get any treats unless her clients gets treats.

Client Reviews
Curt worked diligently and maintained excellent communication with my case. He made sure to keep us updated about any and everything. I highly recommend Rickard Masker, PLC. Would give more stars if possible. Jeffrey
Curt really came through for me when a previous employer had reported my job title and hire dates incorrectly, he got it corrected within 12 hours of speaking to him about it! I would recommend him for any of your legal needs as he is quite efficient! Renee
Curt was very responsive from the beginning. He made it a very easy process, and he provided excellent guidance in the review of my severance agreement. Due, in part, to Curt's thoughtful suggestions in regards to changing some key language in the agreement that would protect both me and my former employer, they agreed to the changes. To protect yourself during job transition, a review of a severance agreement is a smart thing to do, and Curt will do an excellent job on your behalf. Thomas
Curt handled a case for me and did an unbelievable job in getting a resolution and a great settlement. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Teena
