Case Win of The Week!

Matthew represented a client arrested for evading arrest and DUI in San Pedro California. The LAPD claimed his client ran a red light and a car chase ensued when the officers attempted to stop the vehicle. The client continued to drive several blocks until he was stopped with the use of a LAPD helicopter. Once stopped the officers alleged the client was displaying signs and symptoms of intoxication, including slurred speech and the odor of alcohol. The officers requested field sobriety tests but the client allegedly refused. He was arrested and an attempt was made to get a breath or blood test, both were unsuccessful. The city of L.A. filed misdemeanor charges of DWI and evading an officer. In Court Matthew formally met and conferred with the prosecution and negotiated a DISMISSAL OF ALL CHARGES upon completion of some community service and a class.

Knowledge of the science in DUI wins cases. For example, in blood testing it is important to understand how the sample is collected, stored and tested at the lab. The blood vials used by law enforcement are required to contain 2 chemicals: Potassium Oxylate which prevents clotting and Sodium Fluoride which inhibits bacterial growth and preserves the contents. Matt knows how to use this information in the defense of your case. In one recent situation Matt won a case by showing the tubes lacked the required compounds.

Why Matt wins more cases than just about any other lawyer: Simple, he puts the time and effort in each and every case until the right resolution is obtained. For example, in one recent case Matt defended a client in Valencia with a .11 Blood test result. Most other attorneys would convince the client that a guilty plea is the only option given the toxicology involved. However Matt listened to the client's story and was convinced his client was innocent because his drinking pattern supported a defense that the blood alcohol level was rising after he was stopped and he was likely below the legal limit at the time of driving. To put his money where his mouth is Matt hired a toxicologist who testified that that is exactly what happened. Despite the State's efforts of calling their own expert to rebut the defense theory, Matt obtained a Set Aside of the DMV license suspension and a DISMISSAL of the DUI charges in Court. This disposition also allowed the client to AVOID THE IGNITION INTERLOCK requirement.

Here is one recent review posted by an actual client:

"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".

The Highest Success Rate!

Matthew represented a client in North Los Angeles County, Santa Clarita on a case where the client rear-ended a truck on the highway. LASD arrived on scene and arrested the client for driving under the influence after they observed bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, odor of alcohol and poor performance on SFST exercises. He was taken to the station where he blew a .20 BAC on the breath machine. The attorney got a DMV Hearing to challenge the suspension of his license, it was the client's Third DUI in 20 years. Matthew argued the DMV had insufficient evidence of the TIME OF DRIVING and therefore could not use the .20 breath test results. After a full hearing the DMV sided with the lawyer and SET ASIDE THE LICENSE SUSPENSION.
