  • About James P. Brennan

    Skilled Personal Injury Lawyer Serving Waterbury

    Attorney James P. Brennan has extensive experience representing clients before juries and judges in both Federal and Connecticut State Courts. He has tried more than 100 contested matters and has been involved in more than 23 appeals, including arguing 8 cases before the Connecticut Supreme Court. He has appeared in every court in Connecticut from Small Claims Court to the Supreme Court. He uses his experience to protect his clients' rights and to seek full compensation for their injuries.

    A Proven History of Success

    Since graduating from the University of Connecticut School of Law in 1985, Attorney Brennan has focused his practice on civil trial law and workers' compensation. He first served as a law clerk for the judges of the Superior Court researching the law and drafting memoranda of law for trial judges. Upon completing his one year clerkship, he became associated with a large firm's litigation department where he had the opportunity to work with several excellent attorneys and hone his skills as a trial lawyer. Rather, than remain in a large firm structure, Attorney Brennan then formed a law firm with other trial lawyers to try civil and workers' compensation matters. In 2012 he formed his present firm, Brennan Law Firm.

    He has limited by choice, his legal practice to civil litigation and workers' compensation. He focuses his practice on areas where he has experience and can help people who have been injured because of the negligence of others. Attorney Brennan knows that people injured through the fault of someone else are only trying to put their lives back together and move forward as best they can. Therefore, he focuses his energy on holding accountable those people and corporations who through negligence, thoughtlessness or recklessness have injured innocent people.

    Distinguished & Accomplished

    Attorney Brennan has met the stringent requirements to be nationally certified as Civil Trial Lawyer by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Less than 4% of the lawyers in the United States have qualified for this certification. He has been selected by his peers as Super Lawyer every year since 2007. Only 5% of the lawyers in Connecticut are selected to this list.

    He is involved in numerous civic and charitable organizations. Attorney Brennan is the vice chairman of the St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Waterbury. He also serves on the Public Building Commission for the Town of Cheshire.

    A Unique Approach

    Attorney Brennan's approach to each client is meeting with the client and carefully listening to the client's concerns and problem. He fully appreciates how important the case is to the client and knows that the success of a case depends upon an open, honest attorney/client relationship. After he knows the unique and specific facts of each matter, he then evaluates the legal theories applicable to the client's case. Although most cases settle, Attorney Brennan prepares every case as if it was going to trial. Insurance companies, corporations and defendants only take you seriously when they know that you are serious about the case. He makes certain that every client is kept fully informed of developments in his/her case.
