I can't be more impressed with how Attorney Ruane handled my case. I was very nervous and the communication I received from everyone in the office literally daily was a godsend in helping me calm my nerves. Jay explained how it is possible to fight the DMV suspension and although I knew it was an uphill battle they fought it for me and won it. I interviewed a bunch of different lawyers when I got arrested and I just felt most comfortable with the lawyers at Ruane Attorneys and I would definitely recommend them. I don't recommend getting arrested though. That part sucked.

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.

I reviewed multiple options for legal counsel but concluded that Attorney Ruane was the right person given his subject matter expertise on DUI/DWI and traffic related violations coupled with his extensive experience putting that to work at the court house. I couldn’t have been happier about the decision.
First and foremost, he took the time to sit down with me to understand the facts of the case and explain the range of possible outcomes. After our meeting, he was both thorough and complete in his due diligence of the case and in the subsequent follow-up and assessment. He was readily available to answer any questions I had.
But what really differentiates Attorney Ruane is his ability to make you feel comfortable throughout the entire process in what is for most people an extremely stressful situation. There was clear guidance provided with every step in the process so I knew exactly what to expect next. This is were you can see his experience shine through both on a personal and professional level.
The case played out just as Attorney Ruane anticipated and we were able to reach the exact outcome I hoped to achieve.
An additional nod goes as well to great team that works with Attorney Ruane who were both diligent and helpful.
I feel very confident recommending Attorney Ruane. I couldn't have been happier working with him or with the end result.

Jay is well known for his skill and knowledge in DWI defense. He is a superb source for expert information and advice on even the most technically complicated of DWI cases. He is also a compassionate and driven advocate and unrelenting in his defense not only of his clients, but also of the Constitution.
