Chad Ruback – Chad Ruback, Appellate Lawyer

Practice/Organization Description

He the youngest appellate attorney ever to have been named one of "The Best Lawyers in Dallas" by D Magazine. Chad's rapid success can be attributed to the fact that he has limited his practice to handling appeals and trial court motions likely to be at issue on appeal.

Since the time that Chad completed his service as a briefing attorney at the Fort Worth Court of Appeals, he has been amassing experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants on appeal, regardless of whether they won or lost at trial. He has also dedicated himself to drafting trial court motions with an eye to winning at trial. . . and having those wins be upheld on appeal.

Chad has served as president of the 2,500-member Dallas Association of Young Lawyers and on the board of directors of the 10,000-member Dallas Bar Association.

Chad is regularly invited to speak to various bar associations about recent developments in appellate law.
