The cases on this page reflect a PARTIAL LIST of the hard work and efforts of a lawyer that believes that all clients deserve a second chance and should not be stigmatized by a one time error in judgment. Matthew contributes extensively to the web, providing articles and posts that assist others in making decisions about what to do in their particular case. The aforementioned list is a partial record of the actual cases Matt has handled over the last 27 years. One noteworthy case not on the list is a driving under the influence charge in the South Bay. The client was arrested for her second DWI and reached out to Top Hermosa Beach DUI Lawyer Matthew Ruff. She had blown a .27 and .28 on the Breathalyzer. Matt fought the case and got all the charges dropped in May 2021 at the Torrance Courthouse, Division 2.
