Know Your Lawyer: Valeria Ruoso

My 20 years of practice in the Kitchener-Waterloo area has helped me learn and appreciate the simple things in life, such as the importance of a tight-knit community such as ours. My clients have benefited from my resourcefulness as I have established a good working relationship with judges, prosecutors, treatment clinics and other government agencies.

After graduating from York University in Toronto, Ontario, with an interdisciplinary double major in political science and law and society, I completed my law degree at York University in 1995. My interest in criminal law arose in law school. Since then, I have been practicing criminal and family law. I articled in a law firm in Kitchner and since then the community of Kitchener-Waterloo intrigued me and I have been here.

Unique Merger Of Criminal And Family Law

While practicing criminal law, I realized there are issues that intertwine with family law. My approach to both areas is to be honest and straightforward with my clients. I offer insight into their situation without making false promises; I tell them as it is.

Both criminal and family law are about people and their unique circumstances. I have honed my skill in providing an effective narration, whether in drafting arguments or being adversarial at the court. I focus on producing results that are in my clients' best interests.

With criminal law, I try to find quick resolutions so as to help my clients move on with their lives, whereas with family law the resolutions are based on more civil and collaborative approach so as not to destroy relationships.
