-John R. "Jake" Donovan

35+ years of trial-tested experience. Award-winning results.

Since establishing our firm in 1987, we have earned the recognition and respect of the Connecticut legal community — to the point that we’ve received numerous awards from U.S. News, Martindale-Hubbell, and our peers in Hartford County and Middlesex County.

The reason for our success: we’re always thinking of our clients’ best interests. One of our strengths in practicing law as long as we have is the innate ability to anticipate and solve problems before they arise. Since our priority is always on doing right by our clients, we use that insight to determine whether mediation, arbitration, or litigation is the best course of action.

The result: a long track record of success on behalf of our clients, whether they came to us for criminal defense or help with a personal injury claim.

“YOU’RE IN A LOT OF PAIN RIGHT NOW. WE TRY TO MAKE THIS AS PAINLESS AS POSSIBLE FOR YOU.”

— PAUL A. MORELLO, JR.

In the world of law, a lot can be said for experience. Even more can be said for experience that spans across both sides of a legal issue. For instance, since Paul has represented both insurance companies and victims of personal injury, you’d be hard-pressed to find a lawyer who better understands the ins and outs of personal injury law. Likewise, you have a lot to gain in a criminal case by having Jake on your side.

Throughout his time as a criminal prosecutor, Jake learned exactly how the other side thinks. Now, he uses that perspective to fight for the rights of his clients, whether they were accused of a crime at the state or federal level. Last but not least is Eamon — Paul and Jake’s up and coming protege — who is carrying on their legacy by providing top-quality service in both personal injury and criminal defense.
