Jesse D. Rutter


Jesse D. Rutter joined Hanscom & Collins in 2018, bringing with him thirteen years of experience gained while practicing law in New York.

No stranger to New England, Jesse received his Bachelor of Arts in Economics from The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. He graduated with distinction from St. John’s University School of Law in 2005, where he was on the executive board of the Moot Court Honor Society and a member of the school’s national moot court team.

His legal career began as an Assistant District Attorney with the Queens County District Attorney’s Office.  While an ADA, he prosecuted various types of misdemeanor and felony offense including driving while intoxicated offenses, assaults, and thefts. He worked closely with the New York City Police Department on large scale drug and firearm investigations. In 2009, Jesse moved into private practice and was eventually named partner in a prestigious insurance defense firm on Long Island.

Jesse’s practice at Hanscom & Collins focuses on all types of litigation – from real estate and probate to family law, consumer rights and personal injury.  He also handles real estate matters for buyers, sellers and lenders, landlord-tenant issues, estate planning, and administration and business law.

Jesse enjoys being involved in the community and lives in Rockland with his wife (a Rockland native and Rockland High School graduate), his four children and their English bulldog. In his free time, he likes being outdoors, rooting for the Mets and coaching his kids’ sports teams.
