He has received numerous awards, including the L.A. Criminal Bar Association's Trial Lawyer of the Year, and the LA County Bar Association's Distinguished Career Award. He is listed in Best Lawyers in America, and was elected to the American Board of Criminal Lawyers. Among his cases have been several high profile cases which he has drawn on to portray the role of the media in our judicial system. He is the co-author of California Criminal Practice, a 7 volume set in its 4th edition, published by Thomson Reuters.


"A thoroughly enjoyable page-turner..... Rucker [is] a criminal defense lawyer who's had some high-profile trials during his long career..... The novel's plot is enjoyably complex, referencing contemporary issues that go beyond schools and prisons... The classic courtroom drama at the heart of this story is perfectly orchestrated, and the seemingly impossible odds make Earl's masterful handling of evidence, witnesses, opposing counsel, the jury, and the judge wonderfully satisfying to read. Rucker has a knack for explaining the minutiae of legal procedure clearly as he weaves them into the story. The novel also ratchets up suspense in several effective ways.... The affection and loyalty of Earl's team, including secretary Martha Sullivan, officemate/mentor James McManis, and investigator Arthur 'Manny' Munoz, also subtly reveal his personal qualities." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
