Prior to opening The Law Office of Ruth Chung, Ruth practiced exclusively in Matrimonial and Family Law with the Court Square Law Project, a sliding scale non-profit firm dedicated to helping New Yorkers of moderate means. While there, she appeared in Supreme and Family Courts in all five New York City boroughs.
Prior to her time with the Court Square Law Project, Ruth accumulated experience working with a boutique matrimonial firm in Manhattan, The Legal Aid Society - Juvenile Rights Practice, Brooklyn Family Defense Practice, Lawyers for Children, and with the Access to Justice program - Consumer Debt and Uncontested Divorce division. Each experience has informed Ruth's advice and counsel to clients, in addition to providing her with a varied perspective of the law and associated legal processes.
Lastly, in line with her working class roots, Ruth believes that all people should have access to legal services and offers fee options for those on a budget.
