Torrance Criminal Defense Attorney Matthew J. Ruff has devoted his entire legal career to Criminal Defense, 25 years of Experience. 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 two decades. 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. 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.

Matthew has been given a top rating of Superb by AVVO and enjoys a 5 star rating on Yelp, Google and all other online search sites.

What also sets Torrance Criminal 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.

Torrance Criminal Defense 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.

In addition to his stellar record in Jury Trials, Attorney Ruff is also an accomplished appellate attorney who has obtained tremendous victories for his clients in the Appeals Courts. You may have seen his legal commentary on TV or read interviews he has given in twenty five years he has practiced law.
