The city of Burbank is 15 minutes northwest of downtown Los Angeles.
Touted as the "media capital of the world" and located near Hollywood, it is
home to numerous entertainment companies and production facilities,
including the Disney Company, Warner Bros. Entertainment, Warner Music,
Nickelodeon, just to name a few. With a vibrant downtown and world class
shopping the town has much to offer. Our Lawyers know the city and the
law enforcement that patrol it.
For example, in one recent case our attorney was able to have commercial
burglary charges dropped in a case where the client was charged with stealing
in a store in Burbank. What should have been a simple shoplifting charge
was elevated to a burglary case by the police who believed our client entered
the store with the intent to steal. In another recent case our client was
stopped and charged with driving on a suspended license due to a DUI
conviction he suffered months prior. We got the charges dropped and
avoided mandatory jail for the client.
In another case, our client was arrested by the Burbank Police for Domestic
Violence charges involving a family member. The accused was offered many
months in jail by the city attorney before he called Matthew. With our help,
we got all charges dropped. This was a disposition that elated the defendant
so much he shouted out his appreciation with such volume he had to be
removed by the bailiff.
A similar result was obtained for a person charged with possession of drugs
for sale. The District Attorney filed charges that were intended to result in a
felony being placed on the record of the accused. Attorney Matthew Ruff
fought the charges and obtained a disposition that ultimately resulted in a
dismissal of the case. Not only did the client avoid any time in jail but he
continues to refer his friends to us to this day for any legal action.
