I have dedicated my practice to providing advice, representation and legal services to individuals who need help navigating the health care, veterans affairs, and military administrative and court systems. My intent is to raise the case for veterans, their survivors and the elderly by leveraging years of legal experience -- in the military, government, and private sectors -- to provide personalized legal services unique to each client's circumstances.
"I hired Mr. Andrew R. Rutz after dealing with the V.A. for 6 years. I've met with Mr. Rutz and I think I can call him Andrew. Andrew took my case in 2015 and my case was settled in February 2018. I was receiving 10% disability and Andrew was able to get me 100% total and permanent disability. I dealt with the service organizations to get help but was unable to get my case settled. It's not easy. You have to get the proper paperwork and you have to do your research (computers, library, encyclopedias). You have to do the legwork, but it pays off. You have to be patient. Andrew is a humble man that is a true advocate for veterans. Andrew, I just want to say THANKS. I'm getting older and it was a true blessing. I love you brother."
