Since 2021, she has been recognized in the Missouri & Kansas Super Lawyers Rising Stars publication, and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in America (St. Louis Metropolitan Area) has acknowledged her achievements in commercial litigation, personal injury litigation-defendants, and product liability litigation-defendants.
Ruble is an accomplished civil litigation defense attorney with extensive experience in employment, labor, business and personal injury law. He serves as Vice Chair of the Baker Sterchi Employment & Labor Practice Group and plays a valuable role on both the Recruiting & Retention Committee and the Diversity & Inclusion Committee. Ruble also actively contributes to the firm’s Employment Law Blog and serves as a mentor to young attorneys.
