New Haven Personal Injury Attorneys

A Reputation for Excellence. A Record of Results.

We Travel To Serve Clients Throughout Connecticut

If you have suffered a serious injury in Connecticut because of the negligence or wrongful actions of another person or entity, we understand the physical, emotional and financial challenges you face. Since 1992, Mills Law Firm, LLC, has helped injured victims and their families obtain the justice and compensation they need to fund their recovery and move forward with their lives.

We invite you to contact our firm to arrange a free consultation with an experienced New Haven personal injury lawyer. Most cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, which means you pay no attorney fees unless we recover damages for you.

You Will Work With One Attorney From Start To Finish

At many law firms, the cases are handled by "case managers," who are not attorneys and whose primary function is to settle your case quickly, often for less than fair compensation. These high volume firms offer slick advertising and marketing gimmicks, but in reality, have very little trial experience.

At Mills Law Firm, LLC, clients meet with one attorney from the beginning to the end of their case. This allows for close attorney-client relationships and a continuity of representation that is seldom found at larger law firms. We offer the personalized attention and accessibility of a small firm, while providing intelligent advocacy in complex and sophisticated personal injury litigation.

Our attorneys have a long track record of success in the courtroom. Opposing counsel and insurance companies know that we are not afraid to take cases to trial. Even if your case settles out of court, our trial experience enables us to negotiate from a position of strength in our efforts to obtain a fair settlement on your behalf.

Our commitment to excellence has served our clients well and enabled us to achieve many sizeable verdicts and settlements on our clients' behalf. We regularly receive referrals from other attorneys who recognize the depth and breadth of our experience with complex litigation and trials.
