Torrance Criminal Defense Attorney Matthew J. Ruff has devoted his entire legal career, 24 years,  to the area of DUI and Criminal Defense. Unlike many other Attorneys who may "side line" in the area of criminal defense, Attorney Ruff has limited his practice to exclusive criminal defense for over a decade. Prior to starting his work in Criminal Defense he worked in one of the largest District Attorney's Offices in the State of California. This gives his clients an edge by having "inside knowledge" of how his client's case will be prosecuted. He also gives his clients the added "edge" and an educational background in Law Enforcement, Police Science and Administration of Criminal Justice.

Matthew Boasts one of the highest success rates for dismissal in Torrance Court and prosecutions from cities such as Redondo Beach, Hermosa, Rancho Palos Verdes and Long Beach.

Put simply, he knows the "ins and outs" of the Criminal Justice system from the police, the D.A. and the Judge hearing the case, giving his clients a distinct advantage when charged with a crime.

What also sets Attorney Ruff apart from most other attorneys is the fact that he gives the client one-on-one attention. He is always available to consult directly, never passing his client's off to a paralegal or legal assistant. He believes his clients deserve this kind of respect.

He is known in California as a top criminal lawyer, a zealous defender and an aggressive "FIGHTER" for his clients.

Attorney Matthew J. Ruff is licensed to practice law in the entire State of California, as well as the Federal District Courts in California and the Federal Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit Federal Court of Appeal.

PPP LOAN APPROVED
I had eviction removed from my credit report, and I still can’t believe PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST raise my credit score to 809 Golden score within few days. He also helps me apply for ppp loan with the sum of $40k which reflect in my bank account with a low interest rate. I saw a lot of good comments about his good works and He would respond swiftly. Hire him: [email protected] OR call +1 (585) 466 4373.

Best lawyer ever!
If you are looking for an attorney who treat you as like your big brother? You are on a right page. After consulting with other attorneys, I chose to retain Mr.Ruff for my case last March. He is transparent, compassionate, and very knowledgeable about the process. I felt that he is immediately responsive and started working on the case as soon as possible. I had a personal line with him and could reach him anytime, through text/call or e-mail. Mr.Ruff is not hard to look up, so if you are nervous about retaining his services, you can do your research online first. His consultation was beyond what I expected. I feel I received the best outcome possible, and thanks to his suggestions If you want someone who pays attention to detail, is honest, responsive, experienced, sets realistic expectations, works diligently and remains available, you will find the best outcome possible here. I encourage you to ask any and every question you have, I was always satisfied by his honest and useful responses. I will add, I didn't realize how much a client's part can play in these matters. Please do keep that in mind that when retaining counsel it is not "set it and forget it". You must actively participate in your own defense. So the question isn't just "what can my attorney do for me", but "what can you do with their recommendations"

Above and beyond!
By far the best attorney in Southern California, fought tirelessly for me and my case. Wouldn't give up when things got shaky. exhausted every avenue to win my case and won it! If you are looking for an attorney who is fair and willing to go the extra mile for you, then Matthew Ruff is the attorney for you!
Response from Matthew Ruff August 27, 2018
Thank you for the review. As a criminal defense attorney for nearly 25 years I have seen pretty much everything when it comes to the law. I know the DA has the resources to wear people down and force good folks to plead guilty to charges they didn’t commit simply because they want to get the case over with. I won’t allow that to happen. I have the stamina to push back as long it takes to get the DA to dismiss a case for the same reasons and that is what I do in my defense of any criminal or DUI charge I agree to fight.

A Breath of Fresh Air
Unfortunately, I was recently arrested on an alcohol related charge. This was my first ever brush with the law after not having so much as a parking ticket in the last 30 years. I am 52 years old and have never been accused of or arrested for anything. This arrest could have had huge career implications for me and I was totally unprepared for this event at my stage in life. After being released from jail, I immediately began my search for an attorney to mitigate the damage this arrest could have on my career and my ability to support myself and my family. I live out of state and had to conduct my search over the internet. Almost every attorney I spoke to attempted to exploit my fears and anxiety and insisted that I retain their services immediately or this would ruin my career. Needless to say, I soon felt overwhelmed. After phone consultations with nearly a dozen attorneys, I had to good fortune to call and speak with Mr. Ruff. After a few minutes of speaking with him, it was apparent he was a very knowledgeable and ethical attorney. He was also very reassuring and assured me it this was not the end of the world. My instincts immediately told me he was decent human being in a profession that unfortunately breeds many opportunists who routinely take advantage of people who are beyond desperate. Mr. Ruff gave me honest feedback and listed my legal options and the realistic probabilities for each. I began to relax just listening to him. After retaining his services, my case was resolved within days. The outcome being the best possible scenario with all charges dismissed. If I or anyone I know needs legal counsel, my first choice with be Matthew Ruff.

Petty theft ciation
I received a citation for petty theft back in September 2015. Immediately I called Matthew because he has had over 20 years of experience dealing with cases like mine and I knew I could trust him. My court date was scheduled for January 2016 in which he was able to get my case dismissed with just 10 days of community service. Fast forward to January 2017 and my case was fully dismissed, just like he promised. Although the process was stressful, Matthew was easy to work with and thorough. He needed lots of written statements and testimonies from me before going to court. The more information I gave him, the better chances I had of my case being dismissed. If you are willing to work with him, he will do everything he can to help you. Make sure to stay humble and open minded throughout the process. I understand that I made a mistake, but going about feeling entitled and stubborn is no way to deal with the situation. I felt like I could trust Matthew with everything I was going through, and that gave me an incredible peace of mind. I definitely recommend Matthew to anyone who is in a similar situation as mine. The process is long but you will get through it with Matthew's help.

Matthew Ruff is top notch and does a prestigious job
I was recently arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon. Due to the way the incident happened made it seem like a was the attacker instead of simply acting in self defense. Matthew Ruff was referred to me by and good friend who said he is a great attorney. The attorney Matthew Ruff since I first contacted him has been nothing but a huge help. He was on top of things and had been super supportive and helped thru this stressful time and did his best to make sure I didn't stress or worry to much. The case ended up getting dismissed. The most prectigious job done. He is a to go guy if you are in need of a good attorney and he charges a reasonable price. Matthe Ruff is a must have criminal defense attorney. Top notch!!! I'm beyond satisfied with the outcome.

Mr. Ruff did a great job for me.
October 24, 2016 we embarked on a trip to Europe, flying first to LAX and from there to Paris. In advertently I had failed to remove my very small .22 pistol from my backpack and was intercepted at LAX by TSA and booked by LAPD charged with a misdemeanor, concealed carrying of a firearm. A court date was assigned to me in LA, 1,000 miles from my home. I contacted Matthew Ruff about it and he immediately met with the City Attorney who dismissed the case and dropped the charges when the situation was explained to him by Mr. Ruff. When I called Mr. Ruff I felt immediately confident that he would handle my case expediently which he did. He is a real person that can talk with you as a person. I’d like to play golf or have a beer with him. He is great. CJC from Washington State

Matthew advised me on a domestic violence charge.
I ended up in jail on a domestic violence charge. I posted the required bail of $50,000. When I got out I called Matthew's law office among a few other law offices. Matthew was immediately available to talk on the phone. We talked and he immediately understood the situation. In the end, the city had insufficient evidence and the DA (district attorney for the city) dropped the charges. I did not even have to show-up in court. Matthew advised me to talk to the DA's office directly to get the dropped case status in writing. I visited the DA's office in the courthouse and was able to get this documentation myself. Matthew did not charge me for his advice. That's right, no charge. $0. Nada. If he does not think you need a lawyer he will straight-up tell you rather than try to hit you up for a few thousand dollars when you are at the most vulnerable to unscrupulous lawyers. That's pretty cool.

Excellent Community Lawyer
Matt did an excellent job with reducing a full DUI charge to a Wet and Reckless despite meeting with several uncooperative DA's. Matt was also very straight forward with me and explained every step he took, as this was my 1st offense and I had no idea regarding the legal process. I've heard lots of bad stories from others regarding their negative experiences with DUI attorneys however I feel Matt went above and beyond to find a resolution to my case. Matt was also very professional and took time to answer calls and emails in a timely manner. A+ in my book. Thanks again Matt, God Bless. Joe

Matt never gives up
Matt saved me on a DUI. He made a deal with the prosecutors even after they told him none would be made. He stuck to his non-argumentative advocacy of my case, figured out a couple technical points to file motions about (thus making more work for the prosecutors should we go to trial), and ultimately got them to cave to a lesser charge of "wet reckless". This saved me money, and moreover, prevented me from having to get the dreaded "blow device" installed in my car. Matt had already been paid his fee, so he had nothing more to gain, and could have easily just allowed me to take the stiffer penalty, but HE DID NOT GIVE UP. Am super satisfied and full of gratitude for Attorney Matthew Ruff.

Matthew Ruff is a great attorney
Matthew Ruff did an amazing job with my case. From the first moment I spoke with him on the phone he was informative and clear about how everything was going to be handled. He told me exactly what I needed to do in order to help get my charge dismissed. Anytime I had a question he was prompt in responding and always addressed what my concern was. I completed the various tasks he advised me to do, and once everything was in place he had my charge dismissed, as he had told me he would try to do from the beginning. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Ruff.

Case Dissmed
Called Mr. Ruff and took a chance... Excellent lawyer, got my Drunk in Public case dismissed... Worth the money. Mr Ruff was very caring and understood what we had before us. Thanks again Mr. Ruff..
Response from Matthew Ruff November 10, 2015
I appreciate your comments. In my 20 years of practicing criminal defense I have defended many good folks who have found themselves in trouble. Nothing pleases me more than being able to tell a client his case was dismissed thereby saving them from a lifetime of having to explain a conviction discovered during background checks and employment applications.

Drunk in Public Dismissed
I had recently been arrested for Drunk in Public in Manhattan Beach. I decided to hire Matt based on this reviews and his familiarity with the criminal system in the South Bay. He was very reassuring from the get-go, told me what I had to do, and followed up along the way. He ended up getting my case dismissed completely. Great job from top-to-bottom!

A pleasure to work with.
I spent days calling many attorneys to help me with a legal issue. They were either too busy to take my case or wanted to charge an outrageous amount. I had almost given up and was going to roll the dice and represent myself until I spoke with Matthew. When I called he answered the phone directly and spent the time to listen and ask questions so he could understand my issue completely. Matthew informed me of the next steps that needed to be taken and remained in constant contact with me to update me on the issue. This was very important to me because I live outside of California and needed someone who could represent me without the need for travel to California. Matt kept me in the loop and was extremely flexible in his response to a last minute issue with the court date. Additionally, Matt made me feel at ease throughout the entire process and expedited my issue so that it was resolved promptly. My issue was resolved and the favorable legal outcome was exactly how Matt predicted it. What's better is that he did all of this for a very, very reasonable rate, and the 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. I strongly encourage anyone who needs legal representation or advice to make Matt their first call. Even if he isn't, after speaking with him I guarantee he will be your last. Thanks for everything Matt!

Thank you Carl, I know how difficult it is to have to travel from a distant state to come back to California for a Court date. It is gratifying when I can step in and resolve a case for a client, relieving them of much anxiety, stress and worry.

A charges dismissed
Thank You Matthew, You are the best lawyer a guy could ask for, top notch legal council and results. I thought I had a lot of trouble coming my way, but with you by my side everything went away. Apparently the courts and DA saw things the way we knew they should, and for a reasonable price I don't even have a scratch on my record. Thank you again and I definitely recommend you to anyone looking for that light at the end of the tunnel

petty theft misdemeanor - dismissed
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.
