Dylan Ruga

Dylan Ruga is a trial lawyer focused on intellectual property, professional liability, and commercial litigation. 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. He came back to California for law school and graduated in the top 10% of his class at UCLA. 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 opened Stalwart Law Group.

Dylan is a member of the Los Angeles Copyright Society, the Association of Business Trial Lawyers, and the American Bar Association. He has been recognized as a Southern California “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers magazine every year from 2009-2016, which is an achievement limited to no more than 2.5% of the lawyers in California.
