If you are a client of ours, you can count on us to give you sound advice and the information needed for you to make informed decisions.

We are tough with our opponents. But as a client, you will find that we offer a naturally genuine and personable approach that has been helping families get through tough times for over 30 years.

We’re The Difference

Every day people are impacted by workplace or personal injury, or illnesses contracted in the workplace. They are faced with many fears about financial concerns, how to take care of their family and long-term health.

We are actively involved in contributing our time and advice to government boards and the legislature. Attorney Stephen Embry helped write the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act.

Acknowledged as helpful and results-oriented, we’ve become a top skilled law firm in Eastern Connecticut for personal injury and workers’ compensation and a trusted firm by other attorneys and doctors for referral relationships.

Who We Work For

Our work is for Groton and in service of its working class history.

Blue collar workers and families settled in Groton and worked in trade and shipbuilding prior to the American Revolution. After the American Revolution, during the early 19th century, Groton was rebuilt through trade, commerce, maritime and naval shipbuilding, whaling and seal hunting. Eventually, the city’s largest employer became EB, where the worlds’ most elite submarines are built.

This commitment to growth and prosperity also led to unknowns in health and the risks that come with those unknowns. These have impacted families and the blue collar workforce overall.
