Opinions That Matter

Rutherford & Christie is one of the most talented firms with whom I have ever worked. I have been litigating insurance matters for over 26 years, so when I find talent, I recognize it. Nothing illustrates the confidence I have in this firm more than a defense verdict awarded in a complex construction case involving paralysis. The firm has obtained summary judgment after summary judgment on numerous cases, which I value more than defense verdicts and which were upheld on appeal. I highly recommend this firm to anyone wishing to take a strong defense posture on their cases.

School Superintendent, following defense verdict at trial
The firm of Rutherford & Christie represented us in an action that was initiated against us for damages that were totally out of our control or ability to meet. The firm met the challenge with pristine business ethics and an extremely well developed legal strategy. I have never encountered a firm that has been able to consistently maintain that high of a standard over the entire course of litigation. I will always be grateful to the firm for their representation and help.

Rutherford & Christie was nothing less than spectacular at trial! They out classed and out performed the plaintiff’s attorney in every way. Prior to trial, they gave sound advice and expert representation. There is no doubt my case would not have been won had it not been for the collective efforts of the Rutherford & Christie team. I simply can not say enough wonderful things about this firm. If a case calls for superior legal talent, there is not a better or more qualified firm.
Insured/Defendant, Major Insurance Company
There is nothing I can say or write that would adequately thank you for doing such an outstanding job . . . As the trial unfolded it was almost overwhelming to sit there and think that you had made order [of the case]. Your closing statements covered everything in a clear and professional manner. Thank you for doing a really great job!!
