"No Substitute for Experience"

David Ruyle

Mr. Ruyle has always enjoyed working and living in his native hometown of San Diego. He has always been active in his community. After achieving the rank of Eagle Scout in his youth he attended Baylor University and became a member of the Baylor Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber was responsible for caring for the Baylor Bear mascots and one of the largest homecoming parades in the country. At Trinity Law School he was a member of Law Review and one of the founding chapter students of the Phi Alpha Data law fraternity. In his final year of law school he interned with the San Diego County Public Defender's office in El Cajon.

Mr. Ruyle was lead to the area of criminal defense when he was working in his other areas of practice which were Estate Planning, Business Planning and Bankruptcy. The families often had family members that got into trouble and needed a familiar face to help them out.

Other than practicing law his other passion is working with students advance in their intended careers as a lawyer or in within the criminal justice field. After becoming an attorney he began working with law students in preparation for the California Bar Exam. Each student must memorize more than a dozen subjects and apply that law in a 2 day written exam. He is the founder of BarPerfect that helps students apply a analytical writing methodology.. He has also worked as a professor in the criminal justice departments for Westwood College and the University of Phoenix were he conducts his classrooms with real world applicability.

He is often asked why he would want to become a police officer after being an attorney. His common answer is he wanted to understand the dynamics of a law enforcement institution and their limitations as well as what a patrol officer experienced on a daily basis. In the end he believed that officers are people too that have feelings and makes mistakes. The officer's that he worked with all had good intentions and really cared about the community they served.

When not working he has an appreciation for the dynamic topography of San Diego County from the ocean to the mountains. He often enjoys camping with his family and friends. He has found that there is no greater sense of community when people pack up their families for a weekend, turn off the devices and have more personal time.

His volunteer work has been recently more focused as a Master Mason and active member of Unity Lodge #632 in Normal Heights.
