Many lawyer biographies look the same or list out accomplishments, but it is hard to get to know the person or to get an idea what the person is like. I am an attorney who works hard for his clients and who loves the day-to-day interaction with them. I like to get to know my clients and learn about their lives. I enjoy a challenge and like to represent the "little guy" whether it is against car company that knowingly allowed a faulty part in a car to make more money, a hospital that did not follow their own safety procedures, or a sacred institution that allowed horrible sexual abuse against children.

By way of background, I have been working at Tremont Sheldon in some capacity since 1987, but truly earlier than that. As a young person, I helped by weeding, washing windows, and moving files. I would receive my earliest legal education around the dinner table with my father as he recounted his day and time in the court room. I feel very fortunate that I was able to practice with my father for 7 years before he died in 1999. He instilled a love of the law and incredible work ethic in me, for which I am extremely grateful.

I grew up in Trumbull, Connecticut and enjoyed playing little league. I would go on to Fairfield Preparatory School and later Dickinson College where I spent my Junior year in Bologna, Italy learning Italian and politics. I attended and graduated University of Baltimore School of Law. I lived in Baltimore right near the baseball field of Camden Yards and was able to see many games even though I am a Mets fan. It was in Baltimore and after working with the prosecutor and doing ride-a-longs - did I realize that I wanted to return to Connecticut and practice a kind of law that helps people who were hurt by others.

Through my time at Tremont Sheldon I have had the opportunity to help thousands of clients in their personal injury claims such as car accidents, medical malpractice, dog bites, or any other personal injury claims. I truly enjoy the relationships that I have forged with the clients over the years and enjoy when they call to not only ask for legal advice, but to let me know about a life event or to simply catch up.

I have worked with many childhood sexual abuse survivors and continue to do so to bring justice to perpetrators and institutions that allowed these life-altering events to happen to innocent children. Our sexual abuse practice first started with clergy abuse in the 90s and has now evolved to a practice that handles all childhood abuse against institutions and individuals such as teachers, coaches, camp counselors, and any other person in authority. I am proud of my work with abuse survivors in giving them a voice and holding the perpetrators accountable.

I also can identify with many of my clients after a car accident, fall, or other physical injury. I have had 2 neurosurgeries for my neck and back and understand the scope, both physically and mentally, of a spine injury and disc injury as well as the long road of recovery. Every person has his or her own experiences with the injury, medical intervention, and subsequent recovery, but having my own experience gives me a unique perspective that most other attorneys do not have when negotiating with the insurance company or making an argument before a judge and jury.

I have been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America® as one of the top personal injury attorneys in the country as well as other publications, but what is most important to me is my interaction and relationships with the clients. I treat my clients the way I would want to be treated and look at every case and client as an individual. My success is based on the number of people that I have helped over the years.

Best choice for an attorney
Needing an attorney is generally for a stressful reason and the process can be scary. Attorney Tremont made a terrible situation easier to cope with, he explained everything in detail, and is so compassionate. His skill and professionalism made the ordeal go as smoothly as possible. I would recommend him and his staff to any one needing legal help.
