Matthew Ruff is a Superb Attorney

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community

I endorse this lawyer’s work: extraordinarily conscientious, very hardworking and extremely dedicated, it is well-known that Mr. Ruff is an excellent trial attorney who is a tremendous & generous asset to the DUI Defense community. Any person in need who hires this superb attorney will know he or she is in capable hands. For a number of obvious reasons, I am honored to endorse this fine Torrance DUI lawyer!

Hermosa Beach DUI

I live in Texas and got a DUI in Hermosa Beach California. Coming back to Court was going to be a big problem and I was worried CA was going to suspend my license. I must have had a guardian angel that directed me to Matthew, he explained the process very well and took the time to see that I got the best outcome (the case took months) he went to Court for me every time and I never had to travel back to the area.

Matthew Ruff Got My Domestic Violence Case Dismissed

After spending 3 days in jail, I found Matthew Ruff. I told him what had happened, and then I hired him immediately. Matt never tried to convince me to accept a plea bargain and stood by me through the trial and tribulations, as he truly believed that I was innocent. On the first day of the trial, Matt convinced the judge to dismiss 273.5 charges even before the trial started. The prosecution had 2 very young and energetic lawyers working day and night and coming up with more and more concocted evidences to prove me guilty. However, Matt was never perturbed.

Throughout the jury trial, Matthew demonstrated his confidence and got the jurors on my side. If I was convicted, it would have resulted in me being deported out of the country as I am working in this country on H1b visa. No words could describe Matt’s skill and the knowledge of the law. Matt proved to the jury that I was innocent and ensured the case got dismissed. I am truly impressed with the work of Matthew Ruff and I would not hesitate to recommend Matt in a heartbeat.

“Thank You Matt”

I hired Matthew Ruff in May 2013. I travel frequently for work & at the time of the citation, I had a out-of-state residence, and needed local CA resource that I could depend on while I was away weekly.

After retaining his services, we were in constant “Real-Time” Communication for any and all information regarding my case. If we were not able to speak Real-Time, he always provided options for when we could speak, and/or timelines for any deliverables.

Throughout the duration of my case, I was not asked to make any court appearances, nor adjusted my work schedule to accommodate any meetings.

After a year of Hard Work, and discussions with the DA, Matthew Ruff was able to provide me with THE BEST possible outcome for my case, and provided me with online resources to complete any requirements to satisfy the court after the case closed.

To date, I have not had the pleasure of meeting him. I have only corresponded with him via email/phone.

I highly recommend his services to anyone! He is dependable, reliable, and most of all capable of great works!!

Thank You Matt!!! My Warmest Aloha to you and your family!!! Mahalo Nui Loa!

    I received a DUID ( alcohol,perscription drugs ) on 12-20-13 at a sobriety check point . I had a consult with Mr. Ruff , he advised me that the charges would more than likely be dropped . He advised me to go to court and see what charges would be brought against me . He saved me money by having me go to the 1st court appearance by myself . He was right , the DA didn’t file charges . I really appreciated Mr. Ruffs’ advice , he wasn’t out to take my money . THANK YOU ,Mr. Ruff ! K.B.
