A Boutique Firm of Connecticut Trial Lawyers

Deakin, Edward & Clark, LLPThe trial attorneys of Deakin Edwards & Clark joined together in 2012. After distinguished careers with larger law firms, we wanted to create a small civil trial law firm dedicated to close personal attention. We also relished the opportunity to work as a family, with family – Attorneys Michael and Tim Deakin are brothers, and Attorney Paul Edwards is their cousin.

Attorney Peter Clark, Michael’s longstanding mentor, was an obvious fit to round out our trial law team. Together, the attorneys of Deakin Edwards & Clark have over 100 years of combined trial experience representing clients in Connecticut’s state and federal courts.

With our wealth of experience, many fellow Connecticut attorneys refer their most complex cases to Deakin Edwards & Clark. We also serve as arbitrators and mediators for cases suitable for Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).

Solid Legal Strategy & Intense Preparation

We know as litigators that what matters most in civil cases isn’t which side you’re on –  it’s how thoroughly you prepare and how vigorously you represent your client. We love what we do, and we’re passionate in pursuing the best outcomes for our clients.

Our perspective as both Plaintiff and Defense attorneys is a distinct advantage when bringing a case to verdict. All of our collective wisdom and experience goes into evaluating each case’s strengths and vulnerabilities (factually and legally). We anticipate how the opponents might strategize their case. Then we use this knowledge to prepare meticulously and prevail in court.

Access to the Lead Attorneys

We understand that involvement in a lawsuit can be long, difficult, and draining for the parties involved. That’s why we provide clients with close attention and constant communication about their case. We believe Deakin Edwards & Clark is distinct in that clients have immediate access to and close contact with our experienced, dedicated attorneys. When you hire us, you work with us – not a junior associate. Your case is handled at all times by an experienced attorney who is personally familiar with the facts of your case, and with whom you have an established working relationship. Your questions and concerns are handled quickly and professionally, and your case always receives close personal attention.
