About Kristi

Learn Kristi’s areas of practice.

When I was growing up, like every other kid, adults always used to ask me what I wanted to do with my life. A lot of the time I didn’t know what to say or I’d just give a random response. But when I really stopped to think about that question, I knew that I wanted to do something that would help people who faced a difficult time in their life.

From a young age, I was always around law, because my dad was a lawyer. After spending some time with him in his office and talking to him about his job, I realized that I could fulfill my dream of helping people by becoming a lawyer, too.

I grew up in Florida, and became a lawyer in 2003. For a few years, I worked as a public defender in the Florida courthouses. In 2006, my dad and I became business partners.

For the next six years, we spent every day together, fighting for our clients and breaking open the tough cases. It is an incredible experience to work with someone that you love who shares your passion. But, in 2012, I was ready for a new challenge.

In 2012, I moved to Connecticut and joined the team at Ruane Attorneys. Moving away from a law firm where I was a partner and got to work with my dad every day, I didn’t know what to expect at Ruane Attorneys. But, Ruane Attorneys quickly accepted me into their “family”, and I haven’t looked back!

When I moved to Connecticut, I wanted to do more to help people outside of my work. So, I decided to get my yoga teaching certification, and I’ve been teaching yoga ever since. Yoga is a big passion of mine when I’m not working, and teaching is another passion that moving to Connecticut helped me realized.
