From the magazine: "Increasingly, corporations are recognizing the importance and need for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) initiatives in the workplace.

[Mr. Ruiz is] of the area’s most influential and innovative thought leaders who are driving change, holding companies accountable and helping employees feel more valued."

Mr. Ruiz is the Leader of the Appellate Law (Strategy, Writs, and Appeals) team and a member of the Special Investigations Unit / Insurance Fraud Litigation team. He also serves as General Counsel for the firm. He has substantial experience in all aspects of civil litigation from case intake through final disposition at trial, and significant writing experience in drafting pleadings and motions, including summary judgment motions, motions to compel and for sanctions and motions to dismiss in Federal and State Courts. Additionally, Mr. Ruiz is an Adjunct Associate Dean at Glendale University College of Law, where he has been teaching since 2006. Mr. Ruiz has taught courses in legal writing, legal research, appellate advocacy, and torts. 

"It's an honor to be recognized by such a historic institution like The Los Angeles Times," said Mr. Ruiz. "I congratulate all of my fellow nominees and look forward to fighting for DEIA rights and initiatives in the courtroom, the conference room, the classroom, and beyond."
