James A. Saraceni

Attorney in Norwalk

When it comes to the legal system, Attorney James A. Saraceni has the extensive experience and passion you want for your case. From the police station to the courtroom, he knows the law and knows how to work it in your favor. Mr. Saraceni’s career began as an officer with the Norwalk Police Department. During his 27 years on the force, he moved in rank from Patrol Officer to Detective, and then to Sergeant.

Some of the units he worked with include:

  • Patrol Division
  • Canine Unit
  • Detective Bureau
  • Norwalk Police Special Services Division
  • Federal Bureau of Investigation: Safe Streets Task Force
  • Federal Bureau of Investigation: Violent Fugitive Task Force
  • Hostage Negotiations Unit

Because of his time as an officer, Mr. Saraceni developed a deep love and respect for the law. However, he also realized that a lot of good people were making bad decisions — decisions that said nothing about their character or potential but demonstrated a momentary lapse in judgment. Furthermore, a lot of innocent people were held accountable for crimes simply because they chose the wrong set of friends. As a result, he decided to go to law school and fight for the freedom of those people who honestly deserved a second chance.

After retiring from the police force in 2008, Mr. Saraceni built his law experience with another firm before striking out on his own four years later. He founded the Law Office of James A. Saraceni to focus on criminal defense, family law, and personal injury. His desire is simple: He wants to help people — and that includes you.

Because of his experience with the law as both a police officer and an attorney, Mr. Saraceni can confidently say that he has the knowledge, experience, and passion to effectively and efficiently go to bat for you. He knows the legal system and the courts in Connecticut, which means he has the capability of positioning your case to attain favorable results. In addition, he is a go-to for other legal resources. If you need help from a particular organization, colleague, courthouse personnel, or state agency, Mr. Saraceni can guide you to the right person.

At the heart of his firm, Mr. Saraceni believes in uncompromising work ethic, compassion, and integrity. His goal is to protect you today and secure your tomorrow.
