LAWYER UP: (203) 848.8467. Criminal Defense. Personal Injury.
Attorney Roche is a trial attorney committed to winning, and to championing the cause of those who are not able to fight for themselves, whether against the big insurance companies or the immeasurable resources of the state and federal government. Beyond the millions of dollars he has obtained for his clients through settlements, Attorney Roche has also been published in The Verdict Reporter for his jury trial success. A former collegiate athlete, Attorney Roche embraces his mission as a crusader for the little guy against the insurance company “bullies”, and fully dedicates himself to those suffering from personal injuries or facing criminal prosecution.
Licensed in both Connecticut and New York, Attorney Roche represents clients interests throughout the state and beyond, from Hartford to New Haven, from New London and Norwich to NYC. Personal injury and criminal clients alike have reaped the benefits of Attorney Roche’s charismatic and zealous representation in the Stamford, Norwalk, Bridgeport and New Haven courts and beyond. Besides his quest to always obtain top dollar for his clients, Attorney Roche takes his reputation seriously, and his representation of fellow professionals and other high profile individuals, and the multitude of referrals derived from them, are the truest testament to his ability and, most importantly, his results.
Attorney Roche earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and minor in Criminology from Western Maryland College, where he attended on athletic and academic scholarship. He earned his Juris Doctorate from Quinnipiac University School of Law, where he also attended on merit scholarship. During law school, Attorney Roche worked with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in Sacramento, California, worked with a New Haven County criminal defense and personal injury firm, mediated disputes at the Milford Superior Court, and argued a multistate matter before the Connecticut Appellate Court. Subsequent to graduation, Attorney Roche worked with the Milford Superior Court as a clerk for the Honorable Judges John T. Ronan and Richard A. Robinson, respectively, and has years of experience in the realm of personal injury and criminal defense.
Attorney Roche’s passion for defending the little guy was fueled by the legacy of his grandfather, the late Charles G. Pillon, of Rowayton, who, besides being a WWII veteran and an attorney licensed in Connecticut and New York, was also a partner at the New York City law firm of Whelan, O’Neill & Pillon, and was also legal counsel for the Civil Service Reform Association of New York. Thus, Attorney Roche continues to build upon his grandfather’s four decade presence in the Connecticut and New York legal arena.
