Criminal Attorney Bridgeport, CT
His time with the police force furthered his respect for the law, but it also showed him that good people make mistakes sometimes and that completely innocent people can be wrongly accused of crimes. Because of this and other reasons, he put himself through law school. He graduated from Quinnipiac University School of Law in 1995 with his J.D. and was admitted to the Connecticut Bar in 1996.

Attorney Saraceni opted to remain with the police department until reaching retirement age, but he did begin a solo practice on the side, gaining experience in real estate, personal injury and construction litigation, and probate law. When he did retire in January 2008, he joined the prestigious law firm of William A. Pelletreau LLC. There, he added criminal defense to his previous practice areas and began to represent clients in courts throughout Fairfield, New Haven and Hartford Counties.

In 2012 Attorney Saraceni moved out on his own, starting a solo practice focusing on the areas of criminal law, family law, and personal injury. Ever since, he has faithfully represented clients in a variety of matters and gaining the gratitude of many clients.
