We work on your case immediately.
Many criminal defense attorneys don't do anything before appearing at
your arraignment weeks, maybe months, after your arrest. By the time
a court date has been scheduled, it may be too late to obtain critical
evidence available for your defense. We take immediate steps to
protect your constitutional rights and attempt to resolve the case with
the prosecution before a Los Angeles County, Burbank, Glendale or
Pasadena Court appearance is ever made.
We don't just plea bargain.
Too many criminal defense attorneys see your only option as a plea to
the charges. Attorney Matthew Ruff believes that the best defense is a
good offense, therefore we aggressively prepare the case by filing
necessary motions and requests for pretrial discovery. We focus on
getting your case dismissed because a criminal conviction is serious.
We start off with an approach that positions your case for a dismissal if
the facts warrant it, or a prosecutor reject which can result in your
arrest record being clean inasmuch as California law permits an arrest
to be deemed a "detention only" if the agency that is responsible for
filing charges decides to decline to file. This can save you major
headaches down the road explaining the incident to prospective
employers and licensing agencies.

cases as opposed to charging clients on an hourly basis. This gives the

informed of the status of the case and will be provided with all
necessary information and advice crucial to allow the client to make
