Dylan Ruga is a trial lawyer focused on complex litigation matters. Professional but tenacious, Dylan has earned a reputation among his clients and colleagues as a dedicated advocate who obtains results by outworking and outmaneuvering his opponents.
Dylan was raised in San Francisco and attended college in Ohio, where he played both varsity football and baseball. After returning to California, he graduated in the top 10% of his class at UCLA Law School, where he served as a Senior Editor on the UCLA Law Review. He began his legal career working in the chambers of a Southern California federal judge, where he learned how to be an effective advocate from the other side of the bench. From there, Dylan went into private practice as a litigation associate at Alschuler Grossman Stein & Kahan LLP, and then at Steptoe & Johnson LLP. Dylan became an equity partner at Steptoe in 2013 and remained there until 2016 when he founded Stalwart Law Group.
Dylan is certified by The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization as a specialist in the area of legal malpractice law, which is a distinction held by less than one-tenth of one percent of the lawyers in Los Angeles County.
Dylan serves on the board of several organizations, including the Consumer Attorneys of California and the Los Angeles Trial Lawyers’ Charities. He also has been recognized as a Southern California “Super Lawyer” every year from 2009-2022, which is an achievement limited to no more than 2.5% of the lawyers in California.
When Dylan is not working, you can find him spending time with his wife and two children or rooting for the San Francisco 49ers.
