Fernando Ruiz


Fernando Ruiz was awarded his Bachelor's degree at The University of Texas at Austin in 2006. He received his Juris Doctorate at the University of Arkansas and became a licensed attorney in the State of Texas in 2011.

At his previous employment, he worked tirelessly for the immigrant community in Deportation, Consular Processing, and Family-Based Immigration. Coming from an immigrant family, he understands the urgency of resolving criminal matters in a competent manner.

He has also dedicated himself to being the voice of abused and neglected children working as Ad Litem Guardian for the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) organization of Travis County and Northwest Arkansas.

In the course of Law School, he became a member of the Delta Theta Pi legal Fraternity, Hispanic Bar Association, and Knights of Columbus. For his countless voluntary hours, he was awarded the Pro Bono prize and Robert F. Fussell Top Pro Bono Students.

He interned for Circuit Judge Division III Jay Finch, who handled the majority of juvenile cases in the area. Mr. Ruiz interned for Wal-Mart Legal and Legal Aid of Arkansas. During his commission for Legal Aid of Arkansas, he helped women who were victims of abuse with obtaining protection orders and with other legal issues.

Since arriving at Morales Law Office PLLC, he has been working with the indigent community in Hays, Caldwell, and Travis County to assist in providing quality criminal representation to individuals that may not have the resources to adequately represent themselves in criminal proceedings.

Mr. Ruiz believes it's a blessing being in a position where he can help clients who, like his parents, seek the American dream.
