As senior trial attorney at Papcsy Janosov Roche, Donald Papcsy is dedicated to representing clients in Connecticut and New York. He focuses his practice on handling serious personal injury plaintiff cases, including medical malpractice, as well as serious criminal defense matters, including DUI/DWI cases.

For more than 17 years, Attorney Papcsy has been advocating for victims of negligence to secure much-needed compensation. He understands the significant challenges people face as they deal with catastrophic injuries. Through gathering detailed evidence, quantifying damages and calling in expert witnesses, he constructs compelling arguments to support his clients’ cases.

Attorney Papcsy has obtained millions of dollars on behalf of his clients. He is a skilled trial attorney and a fearsome adversary in the courtroom. In one notable case, he secured $4.1 million for the estate of a 13-year-old boy who was killed when a vehicle struck him as he crossed the street in a crosswalk. For this and other successes, Mr. Papcsy has been invited to join the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and he holds an Avvo “Superb” rating. In 2015, Attorney Papcsy was inducted into the Connecticut Law Tribune Personal Injury Hall of Fame, and has been selected to the Super Lawyers list for multiple years

I had a car accident where i sustained terrible injuries that changed my life forever. Don Papcsy and his lawyers not only got me more money than i could have ever expected to compensate me and help me move on, they became like family to me and my wife and children. They made me feel like i was the most important person in the world every step of the way!

Very Thankful to Attorney Papcsy
Attorney Papcsy handled a real estate dispute for me and my family. Not only did his firm get me the money I was due from a corrupt landlord, but he explained how everything would transpire. Attorney Papcsy handled all of the paperwork and directed me on my rights as a tenant. After a few letters and some phone calls, I received everything I was owed. I endorse this firm 100%!
