My practice includes civil trial law and general dispute resolution, including commercial litigation, employment discrimination and wrongful discharge claims, contract disputes, will contests, environmental claims as well as the prosecution and defense of personal injury claims. I also handle workers’ compensation matters before the Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Commissioner, appeals before the Compensation Review Division, and hearings before both the Unemployment Compensation Division and the Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities.
I am certified as a civil trial attorney by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. I have completed the Advanced Trial Advocacy course of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy, and I am a member of the Litigation section of the American Bar Association, the Litigation section of the Connecticut Bar Association, the American Association for Justice, the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association and the Connecticut Conference of Municipal Attorneys. I hold an “AV” rating from Martindale Hubble and have been named a Super Lawyer in General Litigation since the inception of that designation.
