Cycling Experience

Attorney John (“Jack”) Mills has been an avid cyclist for more than thirty-five years. Growing up in Norwalk, where he worked as a life-guard at Calf Pasture Beach, Jack was hit by a van one morning while riding his bike to work. The motorist left the scene, and at 6:30 a.m., there was no one there to help. Jack sustained dental injuries and his bike was destroyed, but he recovered. However, the incident left a strong impression on him. After riding for many years, throughout college and law school, Jack later started his own law firm in New Haven, Connecticut in 2004, Mills Law Firm, LLC. Since that time, Mills Law Firm has represented cyclists throughout Connecticut. From Stamford to New London, Mills Law Firm has fought for cyclists’ rights for the last decade, appearing at cyclists’ forums and other events concerning bike safety. Jack has also been a strong advocate for youth cycling, sponsoring CCAP and the New Haven Grand Prix since its inception. If you have been injured as a cyclist, contact Mills Law Firm – we are not new to this area. We have been on your side for many years. We understand, and we care about cyclists and fight for their rights – every day.

Strong Representation

We try many cases, and we receive many referrals from other attorneys when they cannot reach an acceptable settlement. While the majority of our cases are settled out of court, we provide thorough investigation of accidents and assemble the best experts to make the case on our clients’ behalf. This results in the maximum compensation to fully cover losses in a personal injury or wrongful death.
