About me

I am an East Haddam resident, representing clients in East Haddam, Moodus, Salem  and Colchester.  Call me now at 860 873 2994 for a consultation.


Our lawyers' goal is to provide East Haddam and Moodus Connecticut the highest quality advocacy and counsel in a cost effective manner.


At Jackson O'Keefe, we are not a mass production law firm.  We don't look at you as number, and assign you to a secretary or paralegal for primary "handling".  Your calls get through.  We are a small firm of professionals, helping businesses and families.  Every client's case is handled by a partner-attorney throughout the process.  Personal. Professional.  Best practices. We carefully review developments in the law on a continual basis, to put your best case forward.

The firm is pleased to have received the highest Martindale-Hubbell rating of “AV.”  It is also recognized in the Bar Register of Preeminent Attorneys. Additionally, several of our partners have been peer-reviewed by Thomson Reuters as “Super Lawyers,” qualifying as among the top five percent of practicing attorneys in Connecticut. We are also active participants in the Claims and Litigation Management (CLM) Alliance, and employ best practices in our representation.

We look forward to assisting you.
