Matthew Ruff' Actual Client Testimonials

For any attorney the biggest compliment that can be made comes from the former clients he has represented. The foregoing is a compilation and summarization of client comments and reviews regarding Matthew's representation of their case, however, nothing contained on this website should be looked at as constituting a guarantee, warranty or a prediction of what may occur in your case as every case is different and dependent upon the spfacts and circumstances surrounding the incident.


While I'll omit the case specifics for brevity and privacy, Mr. Ruff was professional, communicative, knowledgeable, and reassuring as we moved forward with my case, first establishing targeted goals through the multi-step legal process and then achieving or exceeding each of those goals: a significant reduction of one charge, a judicial finding of 'not guilty' for the second charge, and a dismissal of an impending DMV action through his successful petitioning for a motor vehicle action set-aside.

His expert familiarity with the southern California court system, the associated judges and district attorneys, the DMV motor vehicle action hearing process and the specific legal circumstances and challenges associated with my charges was exceeded only by his tenacity in aggressively fighting the case.

Mr. Ruff also proactively communicated and led a coordinated effort to align the outcome goals of my case with an outside, industry-specific attorney that I had retained to fight an associated legal battle. Together, they worked effectively as a team in setting up the best possible defense for both the criminal charges and the industry-specific legal case, and Mr. Ruff deserves the significant majority of that credit as well.

I would wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommend that anyone looking for a top-tier defense attorney in southern California contact Mr. Ruff - he led me through a stressful and frustrating case while achieving a very satisfying outcome. Thank you for your expertise and excellence, Mr. Ruff! Posted by Ryan F. On 6-19-17


Excellent lawyer. Mr. Ruff understood my case and laid out a plan from my first contact with him by phone. I retained him from out of state and never was able to meet him personally. He laid out a plan per our conversations and executed it to a full successful dismissal! He was truely determined, honest, direct, and professional. I am a veterinarian, and I have never had any legal issues previously and was unsure about trusting someone I had never so much as met. Hiring Mr.Ruff to defend me was the best choice for a vigorous determined defense!! Justice was served! THANK YOU MR.RUFF!

"Matt delivered on his promises"

I hired Matt to handle a 10 year-old DUI case that I had never resolved, which had gone to a bench warrant. I had lost all of the documentation regarding the case, and my previous attorney had very little in his files as he didn't handle DUI cases any longer. I contacted several other attorneys in the area, all of whom told me that they could give my case a try, but I would probably go to jail either way, and their fees were significantly higher. Matt assured me immediately that he could handle my case and that I would not be going to jail, and he was right. Being out of state, I never met him in person but did not feel uneasy about it. The process was smooth and he was great about keeping me informed. He resolved the case with very little effort on my part and I am eternally grateful. I strongly recommend him to anyone in need of representation.

"Knows his stuff!"

I was arrested for a DUI while traveling here from England. Being a simple English bloke I did not know where to turn for help because I didn't want to go to jail and I could not do any types of schools or such since I would be going back to England. Mr. Ruff took the case and quickly showed me he knew what he was doing. He went to Court for me and got the DUI charges dropped, how I do not know since my breath test was .13. Nevertheless, he saved me from jail and I did not have to do anything that would require I return to the states. Hire him if you want a take charge barrister that gets the job done!

"10 yr old DUI case"

After being arrested for DUI 10 yrs ago I hired a diferent lawyer, that lawyer up his fees to something I couldn't handle. Not living in CA I wasn't to worried about it. But now that I needed my DL back 10 yrs later I contact a few lawyers, most of the fees were outragous. Until I got a hold of Matt. Matt was able to get the bench warrant thrown out, the DUI dismissed, and only charged with simple reckless driving. His fees never changed, never asked for an extra dime. Thanks Matt.

"Terrific Attorney"

I attend school in northern California and was on my way home to southern California after finals when I was pulled over for exceeding 100 mph. As a student, my biggest concerns were getting my license suspended, missing school, traveling back to so. California to attend court and what it was ultimately going to cost me (fines, travels costs, increased insurance, etc.) Attorney Matthew Ruff represented me in my case and took care of everything so that I could just focus on school and not have to worry about a thing. He was able to get my case dismissed, saving me a lot of time, money and stress. He was very professional, easy to contact, reassuring, responsive and I cannot thank him enough.
