From the first days when he was assigned to the Miami Beach Division he has set an outstanding example which all Judges should follow.

It's a true honor to be the first to rate Judge Ruiz. Judge Ruiz is a rising star in the Miami Dade County Judiciary. He's smart, fair, has a great temperment (but don't be rude to him or he will put you in your place!). He will not last long as a County Court Judge, as I'm sure he will be elevated and rightfully so. Stay fair Judge Ruiz. Don't be swayed by plaintiffs' pushiness and sense of entitlement. You haven't always ruled my way, but I truly believe you didn't based on how you interpreted the rule of law. That's all I can ask for. As a judge your integrity is all you have. If a man/woman doesn't have that, they should not serve as a judge.
