About Me

I too have had the experience of seeing my field of work (then computer application software development) shrink before my very eyes with the projects I used to get being sent overseas. People in the current economy have similar experiences and I was determined to find a way to use my legal background to help them. I am a member of the State Bar of California and National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. I have been a general-civil-practice attorney, computer application software developer, blue-ribbon-winning artist, and now once again an attorney, this time leading people in financial difficulty to a Fresh Start. I attended the University of California, Hastings College of the Law for my Juris Doctor and the University of Missouri for my Bachelor of Science, Mathematics. I decided that practicing bankruptcy law was the most direct way I could help people. I am a solo practitioner by choice and all my clients deal directly with me, not non-attorney assistants. I think this is the way it should be done so it is the way I do it.

Areas of Practice

  • Bankruptcy



  • Professional and Understanding

    Malcolm Ruthven was recommended to me by a Bankruptcy Clinic in Marin County. Although it took many months to gather all the information needed to file for bankruptcy, he was extremely patient and encouraging. Even when he had not heard from me in months, he allowed me to refer creditors to him, which stopped the phone calls and threatening letters. He made the entire process far easier with his professionalism and understanding. I now feel I have a new start after extremely trying circumstances.
  • I Highly Recommend Malcolm

    I went into the bankruptcy process knowing less than nothing. I was frightened and intimidated by the thought of it. Malcolm didn't simply take care of business, but he educated me along the way. Malcolm understood that my being in a difficult financial situation left me feeling vulnerable and confused, yet he treated me with great respect and made me comfortable every step of the way. Finally, when it was over, he provided excellent guidance regarding "what's next," so I could get on with my life and rebuild my credit. I highly recommend Malcolm.
