Amazing
Polite, professional, and extremely great at his profession. Provided excellent advice on any inquiry made. Gave his 100% attention when speaking with him. Was able to close the case in a very short period of time.

Estate settlement
I was Executor for my Brother in Law's Estate. It was a lengthy process and Conrad did a great job of navigating the institutional parties in the process. He answered my questions promptly, and if he didn't know the answer, he found out. I know his specialty is appeals, but he was very competent in the Estate settlement process as well. I can highly recommend his services.

5 stars doesn't do justice
I hired Conrad as my attorney for the sale of my home and the purchase of a new home. He did a great job in both instances however with the buying process he went more than above and beyond. I worked with what ended up being a very complicated and unorganized lender and Conrad and his team worked more than overtime to accommodate all their, at times, excessive requests. An example of the extra work put in by Conrad was going to the town hall after business hours in order to record the deed. I can honestly say I do not feel I would have been able to close on my house in the timeline I did if it were not for Conrad. My family was out of a home and we were in desperate need to close and be able to move into our new home and Conrad and his team work tirelessly to ensure we were able to close as quickly as possible. If I could give more than 5 stars I would and I wholeheartedly recommend Conrad as an attorney.

I am very fortunate to have Attorney Conrad Seifert represent me and my family. Conrad genuinely cares about his clients and his firm has been a pleasure to work with. Conrad is extremely accessible, professional and works hard for his clients. His knowledge and attention to detail are exceptional. I strongly recommend this firm to anyone in need of legal services and I will surely use this firm again in the future.

Comercial Driver Traffic Violation
I was ticketed by CT State police, as a commercial driver I was worried about having points on my license. I contacted Attorney Seifert he advised me to send in my not guilty plea and call him when I got a court date. I did so. I met him for the first time the morning of the court date. I never entered the courtroom he went in by himself, he returned in less than 10 min. to tell me that the violation was dismissed! What a relief, no points on my driving record. Wich means no higher insurance rates and no trouble with my employer. I would recommend him to anyone!

Knowledgeable, responsive, and easy to work with!
I would recommend Attorney Seifert without reservation. He recently helped me with the purchase of my first home, and was incredibly knowledgeable, responsive, and easy to work with. The process was very complex (two estates, my first home, and other factors), but knowing that I had his support put me at ease. I knew Attorney Seifert was on top of things (deadlines, fees, etc.), and I trusted his counsel. He kept me up to date with important information, and responded to all of my questions / emails / phone calls in a very timely manner. His assistant, Denise, was also excellent, and worked with me quite a bit on my mortgage. They both coordinated efforts with other parties (my bank, the seller's attorney, my realtor, etc.) which proved to be tremendously helpful. I wouldn't have been able to do it all without them! My parents have also used Attorney Seifert for years, and have also had very positive experiences. I highly recommend him.

Unknown Attorney | Oct 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have been practicing criminal law in Connecticut since 1998 and I am now the President of the Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. I endorse and recommend this attorney for their criminal defense skills. Attorney Seifert is a member in good standing of our organization and well known for his zealous representation of clients in criminal matters."
Probate Attorney | Feb 02
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I highly recommend Attorney Conrad O. Seifert for a number of practice areas. Conrad not only represents the people of Connecticut, but helps his peers get involved, helps them before a tribunal and sometimes simply likes to help someone work through the moral issues that get attorneys through a case. I have worked on numerous complicated and multi-year cases with Conrad and it was a privilege and honor to work with him. His steadfast dedication and unswaying moral character made working with him truly enjoyable. In each case, I witnessed true, heartfelt reverence for all of his clients. It is clear that he not only masters a subject, pays attention to detail, but also has a passion for getting his client’s justice. Knowing the law and then finding a practical way to achieve your goal is the work of a great attorney. I look forward to working with Conrad for years to come."
