Throughout our careers we have had the privilege of helping families and individuals whose lives have been changed by a serious injury or the wrongful death of a loved one. We understand that legal representation in these cases means not just going to court but also helping people and families by listening to them so we can understand the full dimensions of what has happened to them. We focus not just on what was done wrong to our client but also on the human meaning of what has happened. Our lawyers and staff are experienced experts in gathering evidence, and they are also experts in hearing and appreciating the full scope of each client's injury and loss and how the wrong that was done has changed lives.
In many cases, our clients come to us after they have lost a loved one — a child or parent, husband or wife, who died unnecessarily because someone who should have been careful was careless, or a company cut corners, sacrificing safety.
As a result of our work, we have been able to set new standards for recovery in injury cases. We achieved the first Connecticut jury damages verdict above $10 million in a personal injury case and in another case the highest recovery at the time — more than $18 million — for any wrongful death case. We have been asked to try cases not only in Connecticut but also in other jurisdictions, including New York and Washington, D.C.
Our multidimensional approach involves legal expertise, factual preparation and close attention to how best to explain facts to a jury.
Insurance companies and corporations know that we are very willing to take our client's case to trial if a trial is necessary to get a fair result. Our reputation for being ready to go to trial also helps us get fair settlements for our clients.
We are equally proud of representing clients who come to us directly and of collaborating with other attorneys who invite us to help represent their clients.
