About Isaias

Learn Isaias’s areas of practice.

I am a second generation Puerto Rican who has lived in Connecticut all his life. At a young age, I wanted to always help people and strive to do so today with my legal practice. My faith in God and my legal career run together, both of which I use to try and support those who have no support, and care for those who no one cares about. I am a member of Greater Bridgeport Christian Fellowship and have been under the tutelage of Pastor Frank Cook and Pastor Eric Torres for some time. My professional life is solely focused on criminal defense and helping people stay out of jail, get out of jail, or clearing their criminal records for a better future. My dedication to my work is only trumped by my dedication to my faith and my family. 

Personally, I am a normal 26 year old man who enjoys being with family, friends, and just being nice all around. My main goal in life is to come to a place where my faith and profession intersect and I am able to do both at the same time. I am also endeavouring to become better versed in civil law and other areas of the law to help others in the future.

I loved how Mr. Pedraza worked on my case. He was a great lawyer and I wish i could give more than 5 stars. Highly recommend.

Very condescending. Not helpful. Got my money back
I paid Ruane Associates $1500 for their years of experience. They assigned me Attorney Pedraza. Upon meeting him by phone he started reading statutes to me and stated I could go to jail. I have no prior offenses and a good driving record. He then stated he was reading from the wrong statute. After contacting James Ruane they basically told me to either take him or get my money back. I received all of my money back. Terrible experience. I would never hire Attorney Pedraza or Ruane Associates because you don't get a Ruane you get whoever they tell you that you get. What a disappointment.

Response from Isaias Pedraza August 8, 2018
I am sorry for any negative experience that you had with the firm and with my representation. When you hire Ruane Attorneys at Law, it is a firm appearance which means that any attorney within the firm can be assigned to your case and work on your case. The case was assigned to me and I can assure you I worked diligently and hard with the information I had. Unfortunately, we did not have an opportunity to secure the discovery we were entitled to because the court date had not arrived yet. Had we been able to continue our representation of you, we would have surely accommodated your needs, provided you with competent representation throughout the pre-trial and trial process, and attempted to get the best possible resolution in your case. I apologize for any inconvenience and I wish you best of luck.
