JOHN C. RUDDY
The Ruddy family has been practicing law in Kane County since 1927. John Ruddy's father, Clarence Ruddy, was a 1922 graduate of East Aurora High School. While attending East High, his father was captain of the debate team. His father later attended Notre Dame Law School in the Knute Rockne era and was founder of the Notre Dame Law Review.
John graduated from Marmion Military Academy in Aurora in 1968. Thereafter, he graduated from the University of Denver and obtained his J.D. from John Marshall Law School. John Ruddy began practicing law in 1977 with his father (Clarence), brother (Phillip), and Charles Myler. Although his father and Charles Myler have passed away, and his brother, Phillip, has retired, John is deeply grateful for the advice that they gave him on how to protect a client's interests while maintaining high ethical standards. John is proud to continue the Ruddy tradition and practice law in the Chicago area.
John concentrates his practice in the areas of litigation concerning family law, eminent domain, condemnation, bankruptcy reorganization, and commercial matters. He is the Co-Chairperson of the Business Law Committee of the Kane County Bar Association and spent several years representing a bankruptcy trustee. He has moderated and spoken at seminars for the Kane County Bar Association for many years. John is also a regular speaker for seminars organized by the National Business Institute. John routinely speaks on family law, bankruptcy, foreclosure, and related issues.
