About Ruth Castro-Algarin

Ruth Castro-Algarin, our paralegal, is a recent addition to Jacksonville. They say home is where the heart is, and Jacksonville is where her heart and love, Martin, established home. She was born in scenic Geneva, NY (upstate NY near the finger lakes), raised in Long Island, NY, and for the past 40 years lived in Río Grande, Puerto Rico. She is blessed to be "Aunt Ruthy" to many nieces and nephews, some by family and others by friendship.

Ruth is the second of five siblings, raised by a single mother who worked as a seamstress. At a young age Ruth learned to sew dresses for her dolls and herself. Don’t be fooled by the sweet smile, she is a tough cookie! To prove it she holds a law degree from the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico, a bachelor's degree from the University of Puerto Rico, School of Business Administration, Secretarial Sciences (today known as Administrative Assistant), and graduated High School in Río Grande, Puerto Rico.

During her school and college years she learned short-hand in both languages (Spanish and English), a long-forgotten form of dictation and transcription buried by technology. She loved reading and worked odd jobs, receptionist, secretary, and medical transcriptionist. Shortly before graduating from college, she started her first full-time job as a legal secretary at a law firm in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Two years into her career she decided to study law while working full-time, and the rest is history.

Today she holds a license to practice law in Puerto Rico (local and Federal Bar), she was a licensed Notary in Puerto Rico, and she holds a license as a Real Estate Broker in Puerto Rico.

When not working as a paralegal she enjoys spending time with her husband and dog Max (a rescue mix), spending time with family and friends, watching sports, solving puzzles, loves going to the movies, traveling, and relaxing at home.

She looks forward to making your ‘life UNcomplicated enough’!
