Jeremy’s passion is trying cases. Since law school and continuing through today, Jeremy consistently hones his trial advocacy skills. He is a graduate of the month-long invitation-only Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College.
Jeremy has successfully represented at trial and in reaching a resolution many people who have been devastated by injury because of the carelessness of another. At the age of 30, he tried a case along with his Dad and delivered a closing argument obtaining one of the largest personal injury jury verdicts ever rendered in the state of Connecticut: $23 million for a boy with autism who was injured in a school bus crash.
He has published articles focused on issues arising in personal injury litigation, civil procedure, and medical malpractice. He has also drafted legislation to protect the rights of people harmed through carelessness. He is actively involved in the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association and guest-lectures a semester-long trial skills course at the University of Connecticut School of Law.
Jeremy is driven. He understands it’s not just a case, it’s your life.
