Once again Attorney James Ruane has saved me. For the second time in a row him got me a dismissal. His professionalism, aggressiveness in court and knowledge of the law makes him the number one attorney to have. He always answered every call I placed to him and I wouldn't want anybody else by myside in a court room. I wouldn't use anyone else and would recommend him everytime.
$5000 plea bargain, This is all he knew in my case. $5000 for 2 minutes in court, ok maybe a hour. He has no knowledge to help you if you are from Ma. (Ma people getting bagged coming from Casino), In my case his representation got the the full max any first timer would get, he never argued anything. Went right for the plea bargain, after telling me He is distinguished as one of the most aggressive, creative, and experienced DUI lawyers in the State in his initial sales pitch. Whenever I called he was unavailable. Whatever questions I asked about Ma law and my right to operate, he was wrong about and just told me what I wanted to hear. He made me feel great about the case until the hearing came and he did nothing... Absolutely useless, I think he actually hurt my case rather than helped it.
Attorney Ruane is very knowledgeable and guided me through the entire pre-trial process without any hassle. If it was not for Attorney Ruane, I would have ended up with DUI conviction. I strongly recommend him to anyone who wants to hire him.
