A Proven History of Success

Since graduating from the University of Connecticut School of Law, 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 under the tutelage of several excellent trial lawyers 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. See the “Practice Areas” section of this webpage for specific types of cases.
