About Ruane Attorneys At Law, LLC

We are a mid-sized law firm headquartered in Shelton, CT with offices and attorneys throughout Connecticut. The firm handles all areas of criminal, civil rights, habeas corpus, motor vehicle, and juvenile law. We fight for underdogs daily.

Our firm was built on the understanding that comprehensive representation does not begin and end in the courtroom. We want our clients to be satisfied with their choice of firm, not just with their choice of attorney. Our client service and support staff are dedicated to making the experience of retaining an attorney as smooth as possible and ensuring that no client ever has a question or concern that goes unanswered. It doesn’t matter how good an attorney is if they don’t pay close attention to the wants and needs of the client. We want to make sure that each of our clients is as happy with the experience they have with our firm as they are with the ultimate result of their case.

We are an equal-opportunity employer.
