You wouldn’t go to a new restaurant or nightclub without checking the reviews first, so why would you hire a lawyer without hearing what other clients have to say? And, let’s be honest: if you need a lawyer, you want the best lawyer, so industry accolades are important, too.

Stephen Rue & Associates has been voted Best Attorney in the Greater New Orleans Area by the Gambit Weekly “Best of New Orleans” readers’ poll. He was named a Super Lawyer in 2017 and has a “Superb” 10 out of 10 rating from Avvo. The National Trial Lawyers’ Association selected Stephen as one of the top 110 lawyers in 2016. In 2015, he was ranked in the top ten nationally by NACDA (National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys) and received the Award for Excellence in the Field. He also received the 2015 Nation’s Top One Percent Award from the National Association of Distinguished Counsel.

Now see what other clients have to say about working with Stephen:

Thanks Stephen! 😁

He will fight for you.

Stephen took my case last minute. Two days before court. I was pleasantly surprised when I met him, I knew he was the man for the job. After going through 3 lawyers, I finally found one who would FIGHT for me and me girls. After a ongoing long and complicated custody battle , I lost visitation with my girls. Stephen Rue got it reinstated after knowing minimal information and last minute notice. He’s real, He’s honest, and he will fight for you. Thanks Stephen!

He Won’t Let You Down!

I have been in a long, ongoing custody battle for a while now. Stephen Rue is my 4th attorney that I have hired. And definitely saved the best for last. He took me by surprise at first meeting because he was so stern and serious and could read me like a book. He takes his job serious as every lawyer should and he’s good at what he does and he knows it. I called him 2 days before court and he was able to make a consultation last minute and was in court with me in Lafourche Parish. I knew when I met Stephen that he was the one. I walked in court confident that after having no contact with my girls he would restore my visitation. It wasn’t an easy battle. The Judge himself told us that. They were in chambers hours. He walked out without that stern look anymore but a smile. After knowing minimal information about my case and on last minute notice he was able to get my visitation restored. He was able to make the Judge see this is crucial. I had supervised visitation and after ONE incident with my children not even in room I got upset and angry. I was overly emotional after seeing them. They stopped my visitation. So 6 more months go by- no visitation. I’d seen the once in a year. Stephen said the a judge himself is PERSONALLY going to call and ask them to start it back. That he’d never heard of stopping after one incident. I knew this wasn’t a normal occurrence- I jus needed someone to FIGHT for me and my babies and not just sit back and accept whatever like my prior attorneys did. Stephen has restored my hope and reuniting me with my babies and I’ll be forever grateful for him. He doesn’t back down and that’s jus what I needed!!! I knew when we met—He’s the Guy…He’s the one…And he was—Let him be your guy, I assure he won’t let you down!!!!

Worked With Me for a Good Resolution

Being an attorney, I am familiar with litigation, but family (divorce) law has unique procedures and rules. Stephen listened and worked with me to get a good resolution, despite a pernivious opponent (my ex-wife).

Let your opponent Rue the Day!

– Bob E.View on Yelp

Diligent and Responsive

If you’re looking for an attorney, I would highly recommend Stephen Rue. Not only is he diligent and responsive, but he truly cares for his clients and the outcome of their cases. He does exactly what there is to do and will even say at times, “let me do my job.” (my advice- Let Stephen Rue do his job!) I went to him after firing a previous attorney for her seeming total disregard for me and my case.
My experience with Stephen has been entirely different…He honestly sets the bar for caring and effective representation.

– Alex R.View on Yelp

Mr. Rue is the best!!

Hands down, there is no comparison. If you are ever in need of a fantastic person, not just an attorney, in your corner during your time of distress, Mr. Rue is the person you need on your side. He went, and continues to go, above and beyond my expectations, put my mind at ease with my case and continues to walk me through the process, weighing all of my options. Mr. Rue is very understanding, forthcoming and is wonderful to work with. I would recommend him to anyone for anything legal. If he is unable to do it or it is not his expertise, I feel confident he will guide you in the right direction.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Mr. Rue for continuing with my process and being my attorney.

Compassionate man of integrity.

My daughter had to appear in court in Orleans Parish the end of August. She had little notice and we were only about a week from the court date. We were given Mr. Rue’s name to call as we live in Shreveport and had no clue what attorney to call.
We were not able to meet face to face with him before trial. We had one phone conference with him and felt so at ease that we hired him during that phone conference.
We met Mr. Rue in the courtroom before court was in session. I was immediately impressed with him. My daughter was extremely nervous and Mr. Rue sat down beside her and started talking to her. He gave her a pep talk and was very encouraging. He assured her that he would take care of it. AND HE DID! He had a commanding presence in the courtroom. You could tell he was in his element.
I highly recommend Stephen Rue. He did an excellent job for my daughter.
Thank you, Mr. Rue for taking time to talk with my daughter and encouraging her. I realize what you did for her was basically a simple pleading for an exception and would not net you a large payout. You are compassionate and a man of integrity. Again, thank you.

– Karen P.View on Yelp


Mr. Rue and Associates are very professional and fight for what you need. Anytime I needed to call or meet with them, they were very prompt into meeting me. If I could describe them in two words it would be PROFESSIONALISM AND FAMILY!!!!

If You are looking for an attorney to represent you in a custody case, I highly recommend Steven and Rue and associates. I just went to court yesterday for sole custody and am very happy with the way Stephen handle the proceedings.

He focused on the best interest of the child and also on my best interest. If you are looking for an attorney for any reason, he is your guy! There is no one that will fight harder for you and I am very happy with my decision to retain him as my attorney.

Resolved in One Phone Call

I have been working with another attorney on a specific issue I have been enduring for years…with no resolution. Out of frustration and desperation I contacted Mr. Rue. He made one phone call to the opposing counsel and resolved the issue that day.
After years and many thousands of dollars spent elsewhere.
I could not be happier nor could I recommend him more highly. I am truly in awe of his efficiency and willingness to help.

A Quick Help

Upon receiving what I suspected to be a fraudulent call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, and demanding that I present to the local Police Department with a criminal defense attorney, I contacted Steven Rue. They made a couple of quick calls and determined that the situation was not legitimate. She also said that they have received numerous calls relating to scams of this sort; so beware.

A Master Genius!

Yes, we won! I’m still in awe of what Stephen Rue accomplished! We had a custody battle, my ex husband wanted 7/7 summers, rotate holiday weeks every other year, me be inconvenienced every other Sunday having to pick the kids up from him and didn’t want to allow for me to get my daughter ready for her “Big days” cheerleading competitions, etc. Had false allegations against me, in hopes he would pay a reduction in child support. OUTCOME: Stephen Rue was able to accomplish supervised therapy sessions that he is to come out of pocket for; In addition to setting up parameters, so I can have my life back. Example: Ex husband arrives 15 mins late to weekly visitation, he forfeits his visitation. I won’t be without my children half the summer, don’t have to rotate holiday WEEKS AND I’m able to enjoy doing what I’ve always loved doing, that is being THERE for my daughter, getting her ready for her BIG DAYS! No words express my gratitude or appreciation for a job well done! Stephen Rue knows the law articles, and statues to get what you need. Stephen Rue is a MASTER GENIUS in his field! If you have a problem ex spouse, I would most definitely hire Stephen Rue!

Knowledge, Wit, Hard Work and Determination

If you need a divorce attorney in Louisiana, do your homework and read reviews. You will find Rue & Associates have the best reviews.

Contact him early and avoid stupid mistakes that I made at the beginning. My spouse definitely got the better start with her attorney because I didn’t. We started behind the 8 ball but it’s still ongoing only because of his knowledge, wit, hard work and determination. Without him, it would more than likely be over with me the big loser.

He works hard for you and will not mince words or caudal you because that is not his business. He let me know the problems I caused due to allowing a “friend” attorney give me advice along with other stupid things I did that could have been avoided. He is cautious and does not promise anything he can’t deliver. We have some more battles to fight and I am not looking forward to them but I am confident I am represented by the best.

BTW, there will be no winners in my case as in most cases that involve marriage breakups with or without children. After today’s hearing, I know I called the right attorney.

The Most Impressive

Stephen Rue and his team are the cream of the crop when it comes down to The law. He is an expert negotiator and litigator. My personal experience with his law firm far exceeded my expectations. After I had two terrible experiences with other firms representing me in family court against a problematic ex, I decided to retain Stephen Rue at the recommendation of a close friend. I quickly realized that I should have gone with Stephen Rue from the getgo. He is a beast in the courtroom. Thanks to him and his entire staff.

Surgeon at Law!!!!

Stephen Rue is surgeon in the court room.. Mr. Rue methodically and tactfully dismantled my oppositions attorney. Mr. Rue continued his skillful operation into my wife’s testimony carefully exposing inconsistencies.. This man is a brilliant mastermind, I kid you not. Mr. Rue has an arrogance to his stature but that is naturally achieved through his confidence and winning record in the court room. Trust me this is a trait you need in an attorney, Super Lawyer… Mr. Rue`s suit had so much class it alone could win you a court case.. You get what you pay and Mr. Rue and his Associates (Raul Guerra & Jamie Gontarek) are worth every cent. If your life and children are on the line you need the most qualified person(s) available the same as if you were going in for open heart surgery. Demand the best or settle for less. My case was over before court even started… God Bless & Thanks from my two boys and me ( TK )…….

King of the Court

King of the Court… Stephen Rue rules over the court room like none other. His mere presence inside a court room strikes fear in other attorneys.

I am a single 40 year old father of 2 young boys, oldest 3 yrs youngest 18 months old. Mr. Rue took my case to CDC Orleans Parish and won me, YES WON me, full custody of my boys with child support plus the family car.. NO Joke!!!

Stephen Rue is the attorney you want as your voice in court. Like most people, i felt hopeless and full of despair when going into the litigation process and to find Mr. Rue was a Godsend.

Stephen did an outstanding job representing my family with an onslaught of legal battles pertaining to divorce and custody hearings. Through multiple court hearings, we were able to get false allegations dismissed as well as to get the terms of the divorce finalized.

Honesty, Integrity, and Dedication

As we are all unique individuals in every sense of the term, so are matters requiring legal attention, unique and individual in every way. Stephen Rue and Associates so bravely, diligently and with utmost respect, represented my legal matter that had become so complicated by the time I discovered this law firm. I had been through three attorneys prior. Briefly, it was a case involving necessary financial support for our special needs child, from the father. One would think…oh that should be open and shut, a no brain(er), as the saying goes, Well, Not This One! It was one of those cases that I would not wish on anyone. especially when it involves matters pertaining to children (with or without special needs).

My case, regarded in some circles as one of the most heinous of legal matters, and after attorney #3 and going nowhere, it was far past time that I put on my boxing gloves and begin my search for a Qualified, Knowledgeable, Respectful of both the law and client, attorney. Enter Stephen Rue and Associates. Mr. Rue reviewed my case thoroughly, gave me his honest opinion as to whether success could possibly be accomplished. Nothing is ever guaranteed but we proceeded with renewed vigor, nonetheless….I just knew in my heart this time would be different. Mr. Rue, all the while putting first, the delicate nature of the main issue, my special needs child. He never waivered for one moment when it came to the importance of the issue at hand.

Success was achieved in a relatively short period of time. Finally, a Law Firm that actually Practiced Law! Mr. Rue and Associates, a team knowledgeable, thorough, qualified in every way, dedicated, selfless, and Respectful of the Law and You.

I highly recommend Stephen Rue and Associates to help you thru your legal matters, no matter how large or small. The display of Honesty, Integrity and Dedication go above and beyond expectations. My family and I are all doing well now, thanks to the help and guidance of Stephen Rue and Associates. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

After being in a car accident last year I tried working with the insurance company for my medical treatment. Insurance wanted us to pay out of pocket until all treatment was complete. It was getting too expensive and I was just not going to finish treatment since I didn’t know where else to go and just simply couldn’t afford the out of pocket expense. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to reach out to a couple lawyers to see if I could get help or if it really wasn’t worth while. I talked to a few, but the only one who made me feel comfortable and knowledgeable as far as a plan of action goes was Mr. Rue. I didn’t feel like it was a sales pitch when I first spoke to him, but rather honesty as far as his expertise goes and how he could help me. Immediately his team got me set up for treatments. When all was said and done I got the treatment I much needed and a fair settlement (much better than what the insurance was offering!). Throughout the process Mr Rue and his team were professional. I enjoyed that they responded to emails for me rather than making non-stop phone calls since I have two young children at home. VERY pleased with my results and service. As I said to Mr. Rue, I hope I don’t need to see him again, but if I do, I know where I will be going!

In One Word, Excellence

If you want the best of the best then I highly suggest Stephen Rue and associates. He and his team are experts in their field of law. My experience with this firm far exceeded my expectations.

It’s no surprise that he was voted best of the best Attorney as voted by the public in Gambit magazine’s poll. Schedule a consult with him and you’ll see.

I can write all day long and it still won’t be enough to praise how dedicated and fair this attorney is. Stephen and his law firm were anxious to help,organized and confident from the moment they heard my case.

The Best NOLA Has to Offer

Stephen surpassed all of our expectations and was always a step ahead of everyone. He was the most dedicated, knowledgeable, and determined attorney we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Simply put, we could not have won our case without him and we are eternally grateful for all of his hard work.

Top notch, five stars, the best Nola has to offer.

As Good as it Gets!

Stephen’s as good as it gets! Won a custody case for me after years of turmoil. He’s well prepared- this guy owns the courtroom- no mercy on the opposition! And you can feel his control over the proceedings- and his zeal for the very best outcome! Steve’s very aggressive- wouldn’t want him on the other side! He’s also very caring and a great guy to work with. I strongly recommend him. He was a God send for my family!

Best Attorney in NOLA

Stephen was more impressive in action than I would have imagined. The way he and his staff handled our case was near perfection. But the way he handled our biggest trial date, WAS perfection. Watching him work was like watching an artist or a surgeon at their finest. Not only did he win our case, thanks to Stephen we grand-slammed our case. Stephen has my vote for the best attorney in NOLA- hands down.

Larry was BEYOND outstanding in handling a very delicate out of state Criminal case for a family member.

Best Attorney in the Area

Being a realtor, I work with alot of Attorney’s.
Stephen is the cream of the crop by far.
Stephen is working for me on a child custody case and he is really a fighter, sharp, witty
and gets the job done. I really think his statue intimidates a lot of attorneys as well!
He reminds me of a Gladiator. Pleased to be able to have him on my side.
Jennifer, his assistant is a real doll, always pleasant and helpful.
I highly recommend Stephen Rue.
If you chose him, you will get to experience true excellience!!

Best Attorney I Know

Stephen Rue is an exceptional attorney and by far the best attorney I know! Stephen represented me during my divorce. He achieved a tremendous amount of rulings and results in my favor in an extremely short period of time. It was absolutely amazing to observe him in the court room, as well as the thorough preparation outside of court. During my first meeting with Stephen, I came in with a list of five top priorities and goals I hoped to achieve in my favor during divorce proceedings. Stephen was always straight forward and realistic of what was possible given the circumstances. In an astonishing result Stephen manage to not only achieve 100% of those goals, but manage to far exceed such with several additional rulings all in my favor. I’m still in awe of what he achieved!!! As a result, my son and I, for which I have full custody, are living a very happy, financially strong, and a great life. I cannot imagine any other attorney being able to achieve on my behalf all of what Stephen managed to achieve. I’m living a great life, my son is very happy, and I’m continuing to raise and take good care of him like I’ve always done. It goes without saying that I’m forever grateful to Stephen Rue for making all of this possible with the incredible results he achieved on our behalf. If ever there’s a reason I or anyone needs to be represented by a lawyer I can’t think of anyone better than Stephen Rue. He simply gets it done!

I’ve always lived by my personal motto: “the decisions you make today determines the road you walk tomorrow”. My decision to hire Stephen Rue to represent me during my divorce have me walking with a very, very happy pep in my step today!!!

When Legal Troubles Start to Brew, Call Rue

Stephen took time out from his very busy schedule to address my legal matters. I have had experience with several lawyers over the course of my Florida divorce the last three years. Mr. Rue is by far the most informative one I have met. He was straight forward with his answers and gave me good sound legal advice. As it is a shame that Mr. Rue does not have a Florida Bar license he could not quote me Florida Law where my case is currently underway. But he could advise me in a friendly concise manner and relieved my mind in many areas I had questions about. If anyone is looking for an exceptional lawyer in the New Orleans area, Stephen Rue is your answer to your legal situation.

Very Dedicated

Stephen Rue and his staff were very dedicated to meet my legal needs and ultimately achieved a successful result for me when I was taken advantage of by a contractor who failed to finish the job for which they were hired. Stephen Rue was sympathetic and made sure that not only I received the return of my monies; but also insured justice was done through the proper legal channels giving me the remedy I desired.

Great Results

After being injured at work, a friend recommended me to Stephen. He clearly laid out all my options. Stephen was relentless and made sure I was taken care of on all fronts. Stephen helped me get the medical care I needed and the settlement I deserved. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney. Thanks Stephen.
