About Me


Mr. Perkins has been practicing law in Connecticut for more than 25 years.  During the last 18 years, his practice has focused on personal injury litigation on behalf of injured people.  He has handled thousands of cases for people injured in motor vehicle accidents, for those injured in fall-down accidents, for people attacked by animals, for children poisoned by ingesting lead, for those hurt by defective products, for people whose insurance companies have not acted in good faith, for elderly people neglected or mistreated by nursing homes and for many other people injured due to the fault of others.  He has tried numerous cases and has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of those whose lives have been adversely affected through no fault of their own.  He has served on several bar association committees and devotes many hours each year to continuing legal education.  Mr. Perkins is a member of numerous bar associations, is admitted to practice in Connecticut, New York and the Federal District Court for the district of Connecticut as well as before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.  Mr. Perkins graduated from the New York University School of Law.  He is the managing partner of his firm.
