In 1989, I left a partnership in a medium-size firm to establish this firm, where one attorney is responsible for a matter from start to finish. Clients receive personal attention from me and my assistant. Having worked at a medium-size firm, I believe this provides superior service. This law firm utilizes up-to-date technologies in the service of our clients.
Lawyers who prepare with the expectation that the case will settle put their clients at a disadvantage. Complete preparation assures the best presentation of the evidence at trial and increases the likelihood that the opposition will agree to a favorable settlement to avoid trial.
It has become the standard of our practice to work hard and always be prepared.

I have known Jim in the greater Hartford legal community for several years. Many times I have sought his judgment and advice with family, juvenile and school education related issues. He has distinguished himself with protecting the rights of parents and children in the ever-changing fields of school discipline and equal opportunity to public education for all children, regardless of their needs. I highly recommend his expertise, particularly in these complex areas of the law.
