About Myself

John Rueda

I have practiced law in Sacramento since 1983, 20 years of that time with the civil litigation law firm of Hansen, Boyd, Culhane & Watson. Since 2003, I have practiced on my own. The focus of my practice then and now is personal injury claims and business litigation. I have considerable litigation and trial experience.

I pride myself on having thorough knowledge of the law and facts, clearly communicating with my clients on all aspects of their legal matter and obtaining the best possible result.

I take great pride in my practice and in my profession and strive to maintain the highest standards of professionalism and ethics. I am committed to maintaining and preserving our precious and unique civil justice system and am continually active in civic organizations committed to improving our community.
