    I keep the system honest and help save people's freedom. As an intern for the States Attorneys office, I tried cases as a prosecutor. This helped me to understand both sides in a criminal case, which ultimately gives my client a leg up in Court.

I grew up in Bridgeport, Connecticut as the oldest of 7 siblings. I grew up competing in tennis, baseball, basketball and football. I played baseball, tennis and football at Central Magnet High School in Bridgeport, where I was class president. I earned a full tuition academic Leadership Scholarship to the University of Connecticut where I was invited to be a preferred walk-on football player for the Division 1A Uconn Huskies, until my knee surgery, concussions and academic focuses led me to hang up my cleats. Thereupon, I ran and won for student goverment senate where I served on various committees and led the way on impactful campus initiatives. In my junior year, I started my own live talk show which aired every Tuesday night on campus TV for my final two years there. My guests included Lil Wayne, Ice Cube, Wyclef, Diana Taurasi, Emeka Okafor and Cee Lo Green. After graduating from Uconn's business school, I took my talents and ambitions to New York City, continuing my production pursuits of my TV show teaming up with producers from MTV and ultimately getting a distribution deal for my content with a Los Angeles distributor. While in New York I worked for a publicist Amy Brownstein and was the doorman at the world-renowned Soho House.

When my father decided to run for mayor of Bridgeport, I moved back to volunteer on his campaign. He won the election and I began producing TV commercials for local businesses. I created an after-school and summer program teaching students about production. I 2010 I released my full length feature movie My Hustle at the Soho House in NY. I continued producing content for clients, but decided I wanted more, so I decided to go back to school and become a lawyer. It has been the best decision I've ever made. I met my wife in law school and have been happily married since 2018. If it wasn't for my family and friends, I would not be where I am today. As a lawyer, I help people find answers to their problems, which has always been something I am good at - solving problems.

Best Personal Injury Lawyer in CT
Mr. Finch is a well-mannered, hardworking, and genuine lawyer. He always makes sure to keep tabs on clients, and is the one of the only lawyers who will make cuts to his portion of settlements in order to put more money in the clients pocket. Showing just how much he really cares about clients. Not to mention, he is always looking for innovative ways to efficiently and effectively improve his firms methods, further benefiting clients. He is persuasive and persistent, and he won’t rest until the clients get what they want and more. I would undoubtedly recommend Peter Finch to anybody in need of a lawyer.

Okay so this is how crazy life can get and how this world works in mysterious ways to bring things into perspective. I had a pretty bad week and got 3 open cases throughout different counties in CT. I thank God that when I went on Google the person who’s name was there was Peter Finch. What I appreciate from Peter is how upfront, genuine and real he is. We scheduled a meeting and got to speak, I felt the genuine concern and real talk that I was looking for from an individual to represent me. Not only has Peter helped me in my legalities in ways I did not believe was possible ( facing MULTIPLE felonies in 3 different counties ) he’s helping me avoid jail time which is a real blessing respectfully. Peter Finch is an amazing attorney all around. Please take it from a man who is humbled and appreciative to be able to stay free and do the right thing for his family and for himself. My girl/partner who’s my co-defendant retained a lawyer who was a horrible individual. Smiled in my face yet would talk to my partner, yes my GF/PARNTER and try to convince her to just put the blame on me which would make sense nowadays with how humans don’t have the best morale and tend to just think for themselves but also had the audacity to have me retained by one of his associate. I was left disgusted and at a loss at what I should do but that’s when i found Peter! Peter Finch is very admirable individual and I will highly recommend him for your next legal issues!

Seamless process
Going through a criminal case is not easy when you have never went through the process before. Lawyer Finch clearly explained what I should expect during the court proceedings. If I ever need help if I get in a pinch I will call Lawyer Finch.

No One Better In Personal Injury
Not only is Pete knowledgeable, intelligent, and a fighter for his clients, he is easy to talk to, and made me feel seen and heard throughout the entire process. He presented everything to me in easy-to-understand terms, and fought tooth and nail for me. I’m so lucky I hired Finch to make the best out of a bad accident.

Top-of-the-line Personal Injury Attorney
Peter Finch is the best. I cannot recommend him highly enough and I know others who can say the same. He's not like other lawyers, he really cares about each and every one of his cases. He's not rushing to settle your case for less than what you deserve - he's fully prepared to take your case all the way to trial, if needed.

DESERVES 10
I was referred to Attorney Finch through a family friend who could not say enough good words about this man. Our family had suffered and was going through one of the most difficult times in our lives and we didn't know where to turn to and we also wanted the best for my nephew. Attorney Finch has been there since day one and every issue that we came across and Attorney Finch said he would fix it and be on top of it! I will tell you he did not and has not disappointed us not one time!! I am grateful and feel assured that we have chosen an amazing attorney to represent my nephew Attorney Finch from the bottom of my families and I heart, Thank you
