An attorney at Rutberg‐Breslow Personal Injury Law, Marty Rutberg focuses his practice exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death litigation. Practicing out of the firm's main office in Poughkeepsie, New York, he represents clients throughout Dutchess County and other parts of the state. Admitted to practice in New York, Mr. Rutberg is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Eastern and Southern Districts of New York, the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut, and the Supreme Court of the United States.

Mr. Rutberg's clients are people who have been harmed as a result of the negligence of other parties. The types of cases that he has handled have arisen out of truck and other motor vehicle crashes, premises liability, defective products, and professional malpractice. During his distinguished career, Mr. Rutberg has been able to obtain millions of dollars of compensation for his plaintiff clients, both through jury awards and as a result of settlements that he has negotiated out of court with defendants and their insurance providers. His fellow attorneys have taken note of his successful track record and high degree of ethics, and they have awarded him a "Superb" peer-review rating through Avvo.

As an undergraduate, Mr. Rutberg attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and in 1975, he received a Bachelor of Arts cum laude. He then pursued his legal education at Brooklyn Law School and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 1978. A former president of the Dutchess County Bar Association, Mr. Rutberg remains active in that organization as well as in other professional groups, including the American Association for Justice and the New York State Trial Lawyers Association.
