James O Ruane



I’ve been a practicing attorney for over a decade and every day wake up ready to go to battle to fight for my clients. In that time I have represented blue collar, white collar and no collar people who have been charged with DUI in Connecticut. My reputation in the legal community in Connecticut speaks for itself. I have been asked to serve as an expert in DUI defense in civil cases in state court, and have lectured in over 13 states aout DUI defense.
