All I can say is, AMAZING!! This attorney is one you definitely want in your corner. His expertise in criminal law are superb and I could have not made a better decision in choosing an attorney to represent my DV case. From day one, Matthew put me at ease during a time I felt the world was coming down on me. As a 13 year vet, I had a ton to lose, but Matthew assured me that he would do everything possible to reduce my consequences; AND HE DID! This man was by my side 120% of the time, never missing a court hearing. Through opposing hearings on the people’s side, Matthew fought to protect my freedom. Had I elected another defense attorney, I would of risked my freedom, and probably be behind bars. With my serious, 5 different counts, I was looking at easily 1 year in jail. Matthew got me “0” days in jail, and just some basic anger management classes. Today, 4/20/15, Matthew once again bended himself backwards to fully expunge my record. I could not be any more satisfied with the outcome to my case, and look forward to living my life with this event behind me. Matthew, you my friend, have done an AMAZING job. I could not thank you enough for all that you’ve done, and I assure you that I will recommend your services to anyone I know dealing with any criminal offense; cause I know they’ll be in great hands. Keep fighting for us!

Matthew Ruff Selected As “Top One Percent” In The Nation

Matthew Ruff, Attorney at Law was inducted into the coveted “top one percent” of attorney’s nationwide. The National Association of Distinguished Counsel is an organization dedicated to promoting the highest standards of legal excellence. The mission of the NADC is to objectively recognize the attorneys who elevate the standards of the Bar and provide a benchmark for other lawyers to emulate. Members are vetted by a research team, a blue ribbon panel of attorneys, and a judicial review board.

Selection follows a rigorous, multistage selection process:

Candidates must be nominated and then are vetted by association researchers based on public profiles, client reviews and courts records, firm profile and reputation, years of practice, education and training, trial experience, case outcomes, peer endorsements, professional awards and memberships, leadership in legal organizations and community involvement.

If judged to be worthy based on these criteria, nominees are reviewed again by a panel of attorneys and then by a judicial review board that includes a group of former judges. As a successful candidate, Matthew Ruff is now recognized nationally as a member of “The Nation’s Top One Percent.”

“By virtue of the incredible selectivity of our research process, only the elite few are invited to join the ranks of the NADC. Specifically, less than 1% of practicing attorneys in the United States are afforded the opportunity to be named ‘Nation’s Top Attorneys’. The recipients of this prestigious award have demonstrated the highest ideals of the legal profession.”
