"My son was involved in a felony DUI that turned our lives around as you can imagine !! In scrambling to find an attorney, we were lucky enough to find Mr. Ruff….His price compared to others we encountered was very reasonable and it eased our minds….From the start he was very encouraging and available at all times. Mr Ruff was very personable , friendly and got us thru! He never raised his prices. It is with great pleasure that I heartedly recommend Mr. ruff. " Melba Irwin. Los Angeles, posted on Google.

"I hired Matthew Ruff for a petty-theft misdemeanor I was charged with in late 2014. I was a nervous wreck as this was the first time I had ever been in trouble with the law. I had spoken to several attorneys who were doubtful that they could get my charges reduced based on the evidence presented against me, but Matthew explained to me that he was going to go to bat for me and do everything in his powers to make sure this stayed off my record- and he did. He got my charges dismissed in exchange for community service & behavioral management classes- which I was told by my behavioral management counselor was "a blessing" and "not easy to do." Matthew was always responsive to my calls and emails, and was always able to calm my nerves- something that I could not put a price on when dealing with an awful situation like this. In addition to this, Matthew charged me a very reasonable fee and dealt with all of my court appearances and catered to my busy work schedule. I would absolutely recommend him to anybody out there who is looking for the best resolution for their case."

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. He demonstrated his confidence throughout the trial. 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 Matt, and I would not hesitate to recommend Matt in a heartbeat" Mr. Singh, Redondo Beach

"My son was arrested in Los Angeles County for criminal threats and felony vandalism. As parents we were thousands of miles away in Canada and felt helpless.

In January of 2007 Mr. Ruff was able to convince the D.A and the Judge to allow me to reverse the previous plea of Robbery and change my charge to petty theft with a prior, saving me from a strike on my record and a lengthier prison sentence.
