The newest team member at Edward F. Whipps & Associates, John C. Ruiz-Bueno has been practicing law since 2010.  He has experience in all areas of family law and estate planning.  In particular, Mr. Ruiz-Bueno displays an innate talent for handing matters requiring complex calculations, including spousal support, child support, retirement division, taxation issues, and property division.  He has even developed his own calculation software, which accounts for numerous variables to determine an equitable resolution of any related issues for the benefit of his clients.

Mr. Ruiz-Bueno’s experience and passion for serving others is particularly suited for helping his clients plan their estates and ultimately administer them with the court, if necessary.  When counseling his clients, he helps them understand all the options available so they can make educated decisions.

Service to his community includes: free legal counsel through the ABC 6 Ask the Attorney program, assistance to low-income individuals through the Legal Aid Society of Columbus, and volunteer work at legal clinics.  He has also presented seminars on estate planning matters to serve various senior centers and organizations around Franklin County.  Finally, he has served with the Christian Legal Society, both in its attorney chapter and as a speaker and mentor to the student chapters at Ohio State and Capital law schools.
