Attorney Rutter's primary interest and passion is the law. When not
engaged in law office work, her personal interests include reading -- especially history and biographies; cheering
on the Red Sox and Patriots; listening to music (almost all genres welcome); enjoying the beautiful New Hampshire outdoors
with her faithful dog, Gretel; and of course spending time with family.
Rutter's complete curriculum vitae is available upon request.
