Excellent Choice
Attorney Brian Woolf has now represented me twice, both very different situations. Both times he secured the best outcome. He and his staff are meticulous and concise. They handle all of the paperwork and keep updating as everything progresses. I highly recommend attorney Woolf for all forms of representation he practices. If you are looking for the best outcome and a lawyer with staff that are always a phone call away, choose Brian Woolf

Thank you, Atty. Woolf!
I highly recommend Atty. Brian Woolf to handle even the most complicated legal case. My case was complicated by the fact that I had already talked to the Police before I retained an Attorney. Atty. Woolf was still able to produce a very reasonable outcome for my case. He was incredibly knowledgeable and professional, and also incredibly compassionate and caring. I don’t know what I would have done without him. From the very start his calm demeanor, and expertise relieved a lot of my anxiety, and helped me to focus on getting the best resolution for my case. Atty Woolf met with me in person and by phone many times, and for many hours, and always took the time to answer all of my questions, and to talk me through all of the aspects of the legal system. I will always be very grateful for Atty. Woolf’s genuine kindness, and for how hard he worked for me. I have hope, and a future, because of him. Thank you, Atty. Woolf!

The Absolute Best
We hired Mr. Woolf after my son got into legal trouble that could have resulted in 10 years in prison. Mr. Woolf not only successfully negotiated the sentence down to the legally permissible minimum, but also consulted with us regarding rehabilitation steps and head starts that proved extremely relevant and valuable during the year between arrest and final plea. His knowledge of the law is incredible and he always explained things in a manner that everyone understood easily. His working relationships with others in the legal system are impressive. If you want the best possible defense I recommend Attorney Woolf.

High Praise for Attorney Woolf!
Attorney Brian Woolf certainly lives up to his renowned reputation! He helped me through the worst ordeal of my life, being wrongfully accused of a very serious crime. From our first meeting, Attorney Woolf provided the perfect combination of honesty and support to me and my family. He explained the legal process and prepared me on what to expect. Attorney Woolf was also very responsive, returning all phone calls the same day - and he was patient with my numerous, anxiety-driven questions. Throughout the process, he kept me updated on a regular basis and always knew what the next step should be. After a long 19 months, my life-changing nightmare came to a conclusion - no charges and my name cleared! A huge thank you to Attorney Woolf for making it happen. My family and I will never forget what you've done for us. And a special thank you to Attorney Glenn and Amanda for the support you provided throughout this ordeal.

Saved my life. Gave me a fresh start.
If I could give 10 stars as a measure of excellence for Attorney Woolf, I would without question. Mr. Woolf is ABSOLUTELY the best lawyer that you can hire. Charged with two counts of a child endangerment charge, I was scared , frantic, unsure and mentally disoriented. After hiring Woolf as my legal representation, Woolf sprang right into action. He kept in contact with me weekly, made himself available at all times to hear my questions and concerns and, throughout the entirety of the process, made me feel calm and relaxed. His incredible efforts behind the scenes lead to the absolute best result imaginable - "Nolle Prosecui". My family and I would sprint back to Mr. Woolf if ever in a jam. You must put on your track shoes and run to secure his services as well!!

Excellent Lawyer
Brian made my first time going through the criminal justice system as easy and painless as possible from arrest to sentencing. He's very knowledgeable and caring. He's very easy to talk to and actually seems to genuinely care about you and your situation. He was there 24/7 available to talk whenever I had a question. I would highly recommend him to anyone that may need to be represented by someone.

Great knowledge in animal law
I had another attorney, whose name shall remain undisclosed, but Brian Woolf is just so much better. He is really knowledgeable and thoughtful, and you can tell he cares about his clients. My case was eventually resolved, despite COVID delays, without any hassling. Do yourself a favor, get yourself a good attorney.

My experience with attorney Woolf met my expectations, which was to receive a sentence modification. He was always quickly responsive, and provided clear and accurate information. He was very knowledgeable in all ways I was hoping for in order to achieve my desired outcome, which did happen. I am grateful for his attention to detail, his vast experience in the arena, his insights, and for thoroughly exploring all ways to meet my goals. Would definitely recommend him.

Literally a life saver
Unless you've been on the wrong side of the law you literally have no idea how critical it is to have a competent attorney in your corner. Having been wrongfully accused of a felony, divine providence directed me to attorney Brian Woolf. From the onset, he epitomized calmness, professionalism and an acute attentiveness not regularly seen in lawyers these days. Attorney Woolf's strongest attribute is indeed a divine gift - the capacity to put your mind at ease while objectively taking you through the pros and cons of your particular situation. He was careful not to sugar-coat my case, which I deeply appreciate. As a consequence I knew exactly what possibilities obtained and thus remained optimistic about all hypothetical outcomes. The meticulous, probing nature of Mr Woolf somehow comes without added pressure; on the contrary, it served as an invitation to self reflection. Without going into details, I had my very delicate case dismissed within half hour of the "trial", thus paving the way for me and my family to return to a normal life after a year of anguish and apprehension. Thanks again Attorney Woolf for your fastidious approach to my situation. You have literally been a life-saver!

Life Saver-best money ever spent
I hired attorney Brian Woolf to assist in the investigation from the Newington police department. the officer was investigating fraudulent activities and wanted to ask me questions, but since this incident took place out of state, I was not aware of the law and did not feel comfortable answering any questions. I hired Mr. Woolf because unlike other Attorneys, he was conservative on his comments and able to explain possible Scenarios I could be facing. This gave me a vote of confidence and hired him on the spot. Mr. Woolf was able to close my case within 30 days. I can finally take control over my life again thanks to his due-diligence and expertise. Hiring him was the best decision I have ever made. Highly recommend him for criminal cases defense.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2007.

Conditions issued in CT, 2007
updated on 10/28/2014

A condition is a disciplinary order from the Statewide Grievance Committee that an attorney fulfill a condition within a certain time frame. If the attorney does not fulfill a condition in a timely manner, the Superior Court may also impose any condition necessary to protect the public.

Brian's comment: “This was the only time in 37 years that I have been the subject of any Order in CT or any other state. I agreed to a "Conditional Admission" for "inadvertent failure" to adequately explain a fee agreement.. I agreed to take a 3 hour course in legal ethics.The original Client complaint was only against my co-counsel. He retained an attorney and went to a hearing. I testified at his hearing to virtually the identical set of facts as against me .The complaint against him was "Dismissed"”

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer because I have known him for nine years in the community and he has been practicing far longer. Mr. Woolf is aggressive and persuasive with judges and prosecutors, but at the same time has earned their respect and admiration. This puts him in a unique position when representing clients in criminal defense--an area that requires vigorous and knife like precision accompanied by instincts that allow him to know just how far he can go on any issue. Mr. Woolf is always prepared in court and ready to try a case to acquittal before judge or jury. I should also mention that as an officer of the Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyer's Association that he has been instrumental in giving clients access to their attorney's while incarcerated to such a degree that I feel like I can visit a client in any facility at any time of any day including holidays. He has personally intervened on behalf of my clients several times during the past 12 months. Thanks you Attorney Woolf!"
