David Rutman

“There’s wisdom behind an old saying, ‘Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.’”

David Rutman has been practicing law for over 30 years, and is now Supervising Attorney in Glantzlaw’s Traffic department.  David has managed more than 90,000 consultations in traffic and other areas of law. His responsibilities include all aspects of traffic matters, from initial consultation on traffic citations to filing responsive pleadings, to scheduling attorneys for in-court representation, and, ultimately, sending disposition letters to clients, informing them of court decisions.  David also handles Trademark and other Intellectual Property matters for the firm. His excellent record has earned him multiple LegalShield Members’ Choice Awards.  David’s consistent record of supporting others expands beyond Glantzlaw and his work responsibilities.  

During the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, David made it his mission to ship boxes of books, comics, DVDs and CDs to active duty service personnel. He shipped out nearly 300 boxes and inspired Glantzlaw’s employees to donate many of the items shipped.  Many know about David’s humanity and passion to support our troops, but what they might not know about David’s relentless pursuit of justice is that David’s argument in court once helped get a statue declared unconstitutional in Miami-Dade County.

If you ask David what made him go into law, he will reply that it was the hectic lives of law students as depicted in the movie The Paper Chase. He specifically chose Traffic law after serving several years in Miami-Dade County as one of the original traffic magistrates. Prior to his career in law, David was a writer and editor for various trade publications in such diverse fields as: institutional laundries; health care education; and electronics. He also sold some jokes to Phyllis Diller and Tom Snyder, and hand-lettered a Bugs Bunny story for Gold Key Comics.
