Former Assistant United States Attorney Steve Ruby has joined Bailey & Glasser LLP as a partner at the firm’s Charleston, West Virginia, office.
At the U.S. Attorney’s office, from 2009 to last month, Mr. Ruby led complex law enforcement investigations and prosecutions in several high-profile cases involving a wide range of criminal matters from extortion, public corruption to fraud, notably: prosecutions and a $209 million corporate settlement arising from the Upper Big Branch mine explosion, the investigation and prosecution of a California man who used death threats against seven prominent American business leaders and their families to attempt to extort $122 million, and seven convictions of elected officials for public corruption.
Ruby is a cum laude graduate of Duke University and graduated first in his class from the Washington and Lee University School of Law. He served as a law clerk to the Honorable Robert B. King of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, and, before his work as a prosecutor, practiced in Washington, D.C., handling complex civil and criminal matters for one of the nation’s most highly regarded law firms.
“This is an exciting new chapter in a career spent finding the truth and putting the justice system to work for West Virginians,” Ruby said. “Bailey & Glasser is doing good work in protecting the public interest, so this is right place for me.”
Ruby has appeared on TV news programs such CBS’s 60 Minutes, ABC News and quoted by national media outlets such as The New York Times, the Washington Post, Forbes, Bloomberg, US News World Report and others.
