Ruth Lynn Estep
Ruth Lynn Estep (1952-2020)
Ruth Lynn Estep practiced law for over thirty-five years, the last twenty of which were devoted exclusively to the practice of family law. Ruth was the Family Law Department Chair Emeritus. Ruth was also the past-President and Chair of the Family Law Section of the Santa Monica Bar Association. Her proven excellence and knowledge of the law and thorough preparation and skill in the Courtroom won her the respect of judges throughout the County of Los Angeles. In turn, judges consistently selected Ruth to assist them in making informed decisions pertaining to custody by appointing her as Minor’s Counsel in a number of high conflict child custody cases.
Ruth was well-known among her colleagues and clients for her high standards, integrity, willingness to accommodate her client’s needs, and for her caring and extremely personable nature.
Ruth will be greatly missed.
