How The Law Firm Started...

The story behind Rue & Ziffra, starts with the undertaking of one of its founding attorneys, Attorney John D. Rue. Before starting his career in law, Mr. Rue worked predominantly in the insurance business. He held various positions including that of an insurance adjuster and claims supervisor, and also branched out as an attorney for a major insurance company.

Eventually, Mr. Rue decided to practice law exclusively. As an avid motorcyclist, he was determined to open his own firm dedicated to helping other bikers like himself who had been injured because of another driver’s negligence. Thus, he opened his own law firm in 1976 specifically devoted to helping individuals hurt in motorcycle crashes and other types of personal injury claims.

Due to his extensive knowledge of both the insurance and legal fields, Mr. Rue became a valuable asset to the legal profession that other law firms could not match. He was able to help clients maneuver swiftly and smoothly through the claims process while helping them receive the full benefits they deserved from the at-fault party’s insurance company. With early success, the firm’s clientele began to grow, bringing with it the need for expansion in other areas.

In 1991, Attorney Allan L. Ziffra joined Mr. Rue as the co-founder of Rue & Ziffra, P.A. Also a devoted motorcyclist, Mr. Ziffra had a passion for helping bikers and other victims of personal injury claims receive full and fair compensation for their injuries.

In 1993, Mr. Ziffra became the firm’s President and has held this position since then. As such, he oversees many aspects of the business’s operations, including its system management and marketing efforts. Throughout his years, he has handled various types of personal injury claims such as bicycle and truck accidents, pedestrian claims, wrongful death, and motorcycle crashes. Before beginning his practice in law, he graduated with a tax law and accounting background. This knowledge gives him an edge over other lawyers when it comes to the tax consequences of structured settlements and annuities, as well as in calculating the present value of future lost wages.
