“My Experience With Matthew Ruff Was Amazing!”

Actual client review from Yelp.
September 15, 2016

My experience with Matthew Ruff was amazing! He is really experienced, connected (knows DAs, judges), and worked my case relentlessly until he got the outcome we all desired.

Long story short….Had couple of beers, got pulled over for a broken tail light, blew .08 and .09 into breathalyzer, got arrested……..District Attorney filed DUI charges. Mr. Ruff was able to get the charges reduced to a Dry Reckless, which was an awesome deal.

Then came the DMV Hearing process….very long process during which Matthew showed up to multiple hearings and brought experts with him to fight the case and make sure the driver’s license wasn’t suspended by the DMV.

Today we’ve found out that Mr. Ruff won the DMV hearing case!! — and the DMV will not take away the Driver’s License! This is awesome news as it will save $$$s with the insurance company and skips all the other sanctions and pain of not having the DL!

Mr. Ruff is very professional keeping the client informed every step of the way, and willing to go the extra mile for his clients. I fully, 100% recommend his services if you have anything to do with DUI charges or Driver License suspension.

“I Cannot Sing Enough Praise For Matt”

I just wanted to provide an update to my last review. As of earlier today, my legal issue has been fully resolved and the favorable outcome received was exactly what Matt said it would be. Again, I cannot sing enough praise for Matt, who was a pleasure to work with during this entire process. His professionalism and attention to detail are second to none. Additionally, the very reasonable rate he quoted me when I first contacted him was the exact rate he charged me upon resolution of my issue. No bait-and-switch. No last minute “contingency” that required additional cost. And absolutely no hidden fees. As I mentioned before, I do not live in California so being kept up to date from beginning to end (without needing to travel to California at all) mattered a lot to me. Again, Matt didn’t cease to impress in that regard either. He kept me in the loop and was extremely flexible in his response to a last minute issue with the court date. All in all, if you need legal advice or representation in the L.A. area, attorney Matt Ruff should be your first call. Even if he isn’t, after speaking with him I guarantee he will be your last. Thanks for everything Matt!
