Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyer

You Are Not Alone in This Fight

You can’t always count on others to do the honorable thing. And justice is never a foregone conclusion. If you or a family member has been harmed due to negligence on the part of an individual or a company, you need an aggressive advocate who will take a strong stand for you.

At Wocl Leydon, we have almost three decades of experience securing full and fair compensation for victims of medical malpractice, dangerous and defective products, motor vehicle crashes, and other serious accidents. Across Connecticut, clients have come to count on us to:

  • Approach each case as a team. We are focused on providing a well-rounded legal strategy based on a wide range of experience.
  • Provide direct communication between our lawyers and our clients. We don’t put a case manager between us and you.
  • Aggressively litigate matters where settling would be an injustice. We are a trial law firm, and we prepare each case with the jury in mind.
  • Build genuine and honest relationships with clients and their families. We care about your case because we care about you.

In addition to working with individuals and families, our law firm is proud to accept referrals from our peers and represent fellow attorneys in complex matters. We consider it an honor when other attorneys turn to us for help.
