For nearly 70 years, the firm of Cooney, Scully and Dowling has provided legal services in Connecticut. We believe that our longevity is a reflection of the excellence of our work, of our attorneys, and of our staff.
A significant portion of the firm's litigation practice is in the defense of those sued in civil litigation. Our practice includes professional malpractice (medical, dental, legal, architectural, engineering, real estate and accounting), general liability, product liability, premises liability, real estate, employment, civil rights, construction, corporate, directors and officers, environmental, insurance coverage, workers' compensation, and first and third-party bad faith litigation. We also defend governmental entities and their employees in matters as diverse as defective highway suits, civil rights, and police pursuit claims. We represent plaintiffs in personal injury and other matters.
The non-litigation aspect of the firm's practice includes business and commercial law, and general practice. We represent a large number of non-profit and for-profit entities in general corporate and business matters, in commercial transactions and contracts, and in commercial real estate and zoning. We provide counseling and training to employers on employment matters, and represent them in labor relations. We represent individuals in real estate, zoning, estate planning and probate, conservatorships and miscellaneous matters.
We take seriously our role as advisors and counselors. A good lawyer should combine sensitivity to a client's problems with sound, practical advice. Unlike many firms where attorneys practice in only one narrow area of the law, attorneys at Cooney, Scully and Dowling practice in several areas and are exposed to many of the legal problems an individual or business can face. This depth and breadth of experience helps us to recommend common sense solutions to our clients' legal problems.
