NOTICE: Attorneys not admitted to the Connecticut bar must move for pro hac vice admission to practice before administrative agencies like the Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities.  This is the result of the Connecticut Supreme Court decision in Persels & Associates, LLC v. Banking Commissioner, 318 Conn. 652 (2015) and a change to our practice rules in Practice Book § 2-16 (effective 1/1/17).   

 

 

Non-Connecticut attorneys either must move for pro hac vice admission or another attorney or member of the firm admitted in Connecticut must file an appearance using our new appearance form, linked below for your convenience:
