Areas of Practice
We have won substantial judgments and settlements on behalf of our clients, and the clients of partner law firms, in all of the following areas:
When a final judgment enters in a lower court, a party may seek to reverse or overturn that judgment in a court with superior jurisdiction.
If a person is legally injured by the wrongful act of another, that person may have the right to sue for compensation. Common examples of tort claims are known as personal injury or negligence actions.
There are many other forms of civil litigation and representation. These areas include breach of contract, class actions, consumer protection, violation of the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act (CUTPA), and workers' compensation.
Admitted to practice in:
State of Connecticut
United States District Court for the District of Connecticut
United States Supreme Court
Depending on the case, we offer services based on a competitive hourly rate, a contingency fee, or a hybrid of the two. The distinctions among these fees are based on the type of legal work involved, and the circumstances of individual clients.
Regardless of the type of fee, our clients quickly learn that their case gets the time and attention it needs. The Law Office of Austin B. Johns is detail oriented, and offers each client personal representation.
