Attorney Bartlett gets the job done
After getting the run-around from the insurance company, the other lawyer, and even my own lawyer I decided to hire Attorney Frank Bartlett and I couldn't be happier. Attorney Bartlett clearly explained what was going to happen and my options through every step of the process. He turned an anxious situation into a positive one and I'm happy to say that I've already recommended him to family members and friends who were in need of similar services.

EXCELLENT SERVICE!!
Frank constantly updated me on the status of my case when me and my wife were rear ended a year ago, he worked hard and handled everything smoothly. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Knowledge, Experience And Integrity
Attorney Frank C. Bartlett and the team at his Law Firm are amazing! I didn't have any knowledge of the process or what to do and very worried, So he took the time out of his busy schedule and came over to my house, I had many questions which he explained everything in detail, he walked me through the process and helped me to calmed down giving me a sense of hope at the end of our conversation I knew I didn't had to look any further so I hired him to represent me. As time goes by I was a bundle of nerves but he never grew impatient with my endless questions and always replied promptly. Everyone made me feel like I was their number one priority. I would recommend Attorney Frank C. Bartlett to anyone who is thinking of hiring an Attorney!

TOP NOTCH ATTORNEY
Attorney Bartlett truly cares about his clients. Even one year after my case was settled, he personally has returned multiple emails regarding my accident and the issues I'm currently having with my insurance company. He was extremely helpful throughout the entire settlement process. One of the good guys.

A pleasant interaction
I reached out to Mr Bartlett to ask about what to do in a rear end collision situation. Mr. Bartlett was quick to respond, look over my paperwork and give his expert advice. Mr. Bartlett was honest about all of the information and while we didn't hire Mr. Bartlett, he was open and honest about what we should expect. An extremely pleasant exchange.

Exceptional Lawyer
Attorney Bartlett is a truly gifted lawyer with an extraordinary mind. As a past client told me about Attorney Bartlett, “he’s a true artist in the courtroom”. She was right, his ability to break down the other side’s expert witnesses on the stand is something to behold. His amazing recall of depositions taken ages ago and his line of questioning allowed him to trap and discredit their witness. During closing arguments, he smoothly recalled countless facts and details for over an hour in front of the jury without referring to notes. He made the jury laugh with him, and he brought them to tears. This is an exceptional person. Words can’t express my appreciation for everything he’s done.

How to choose the best lawyer in connecticut
This is my first ever review of anything. I know how much effort and research I put in to finding the right attorney and I thought this review might help someone else. I found recommendations from lawyer’s clients that you actually know are the most useful, followed by client reviews, recommendations from other lawyers, lawyer’s websites, lawyer rating services online, and the least useful are attorney advertisements. Look at or ask about the attorney's experience with your type of case and their past results. The best lawyers specialize in certain types of law. In other words, never use your real estate lawyer to handle a sexual abuse suit just because you’re friends with him. I narrowed down my list of candidates and talked to several lawyers before talking to my clear first choice, Attorney Bartlett. After one conversation, I knew he was who I wanted on my side. I was initially concerned that his firm’s offices were half way across the state, but this did not end up being an issue at all with today’s technology. If you are looking for a brilliant legal mind and a great person, Frank Bartlett is your man. I was very lucky to have him as my attorney for a long and complex case. I was initially very anxious and scared about the whole legal process. Attorney Bartlett was a calming force and very easy to deal with. He explained every possible option, and pointed out many possible pitfalls. A lawyer’s experience is critically important. The legal process is a long road and I really got to know Attorney Bartlett. I found he has an extraordinary knowledge base and hands on experience with many fields. I feel this really differentiates Frank from other lawyers. He has amazing recall of details and facts, and a lightning fast mind. He’s very likeable, and it’s easy to see that the opposing attorneys respect him. Attorney Bartlett’s experience with many cases allowed us to arrive at a fair value for my case. His experience gained from litigating for insurance companies early in his career allows him to evaluate the maximum a case is actually worth. It’s critical to trust your lawyer’s judgement, and I absolutely trusted him. Many lawyers fit the cliché that jokes are made from. Attorney Bartlett is the opposite of this cliché. He’s honest, compassionate, extremely hard working, and a very caring family man. He always took the extra time to explain things very thoroughly and always returned phone calls promptly. His motto is "Giving victims a voice". He really is your voice in the legal system. He is the best attorney you could ever hope to have fighting for you. He literally changed my life. Feel very fortunate if he takes your case. You will truly be in good hands and you will gain a valued friend that cares about what’s best for you. I hope this review helps you decide. Beverly, a very satisfied client from Norwich.

Highly Recommend!
I hired Bartlett Burns for a personal injury case, and am thankful that I did. After being turned down by a few other lawyers because “I had a weak case”, Bartlett Burns took the time to listen and showed me how I indeed had a case, it wasn't an easy one, but they assured me they would work diligently to get me the compensation I deserved. They did exactly that. I worked mostly with Frank Bartlett Jr, and had an overall excellent experience. Frank is honest, trustworthy, and personable. I quickly knew that I was in good hands, and that Frank was willing to put in the extensive work to win our case. Whenever I spoke to Frank, he always took the time to explain everything to me and made sure I understood what was going on. Frank always gave me regular updates, and whenever I had a question he would call or email me back right away. Throughout the entire process, I felt that I was Frank’s only client, even though I’m sure that wasn't the case. I truly admire Frank for his work ethic and professionalism. I feel like Frank will be the only lawyer I will ever need, and he has also assisted me in starting a business and drafting a will.

Attorney Review
I have the pleasure of writing this letter about Attorney Frank Bartlett. By Gods guidance, Attorney Bartlett was sent into my life due to a tragedy of a fire which left me and my disabled daughter homeless and penniless. He became our lawyer for a suit against the owners of an apartment complex that burned down. In my dealings with Attorney Frank Bartlett, I see him as a light of comfort, a caring counsel who gives strength to his client to carry on during the long journy of "waiting" through the court procedures until the case is won. When you call him with questions he gives you a complete answer to your legal inquiry and never does he rush you through the phone conversation until he knows that you understand his explanations. Should there be a question that cannot be immediately answered, he always will call back with the answer. From my observation I would say that he is a "hawk" of a good detective. This trait is rare in my opinion in today's world. This is a fine man I think capable of riding up the ladder of success as far as it goes and may God hold his hand in his doing so. I am blessed not only knowing him as my lawyer, but also knowing him as a person who I feel I can trust and rely on.
