Fairfield County lawyers build on a strong local tradition to meet modern challenges

Residents of Bridgeport and the surrounding area rely on us to meet the highest professional standards because our firm is:

Our firm makes every effort to put you in the best possible position when our work is completed. From your free initial consultation through the conclusion of your matter, we will be here to give you strong guidance.

Skillful legal counselors handle divorce, custody and other domestic matters

As a family-run law firm for more than a half-century, we know how important it is to establish stable roots and embody strong values. Going through a divorce or some other situation requiring family law assistance can be a serious test regardless of your background or income level. By working with each client personally, we look for creative ways to resolve child support, custody, visitation and alimony concerns in a positive, professional manner. Should you wish to bring a child into your home through adoption, we will explain your options and guide you through the process.

Area attorneys work to secure compensation for victims of negligence

With Bridgeport’s status as a hub for government, transportation and several industries, there is a great deal of activity on local streets and major highways like I-95. When an auto accident occurs, our experienced personal injury lawyers handle insurance claims and litigation so that victims can collect the reimbursement they deserve for medical bills, lost income and other damages. We also represent victims in other types of personal injury cases, including those arising from medical malpractice, dog bites and falls on unsafe surfaces. In situations where someone else’s negligence has fatal consequences, we bring wrongful death claims on behalf of the decedent’s estate.

Strong advocates safeguard the rights of clients facing criminal charges

After an arrest, it’s important to find a criminal defense attorney who not only knows the pertinent laws but also understands the way local authorities apply them. For individuals who have been accused of felony or misdemeanor offenses, our firm serves as a dedicated advocate. Whether you’ve been accused of drunk driving, assault, a drug crime or a different violation, we’ll deliver knowledgeable counsel at every stage of your proceedings. Even in serious matters involving vehicular homicide, sexual offenses or other purported crimes, we’ll press to obtain a dismissal, acquittal or fair plea agreement.
