oskoff Koskoff & Bieder is one of the leading trial law firms in Connecticut and nationally. Over its 80-year history, the firm’s attorneys have earned a reputation for litigating some of the toughest cases on behalf of those who have been seriously injured and their families. Koskoff’s attorneys handle a range of cases in all areas of civil litigation, from medical malpractice, product liability, and civil rights to highway crashes and other cases involving major disasters. In fact, they are currently handling the Sandy Hook gun cases. The firm is responsible for winning six of the 10 largest personal injury verdicts in Connecticut

history, including the largest medical malpractice verdict and largest non-medical malpractice personal injury verdict to ever be handed down in the state. If that were not proof enough of the firm’s accomplishments, it is worth noting that the professional pedigree of the firm’s attorneys also runs high: 13 of Koskoff’s attorneys are recognized in The Best Lawyers in America , and attorneys from the firm serve in leadership positions for the Inner Circle of Advocates, the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, and the American Association for Justice. “We are proud of the work we do here and

we are fortunate to have so many talented and accomplished attorneys at the firm,” says Koskoff managing attorney Jim Horwitz. “It’s one of the reasons many of our cases are referred to us from other attorneys.” The firm recently brought on board Chris Mattei, who previously served as chief of the Financial Fraud and Public Corruption Unit of the Connecticut U.S. Attorney’s Office. “Chris is a young man with extraordinary trial skills. He’s a valuable addition to our practice,” says Horwitz. The firm has earned a reputation for approaching every case with the highest degree of professionalism, understanding,

and respect for their clients and the severity of their cases. The care given to each client’s case extends to weekly meetings, where all of Koskoff’s 20 attorneys get together as a team to discuss every case on the firm’s docket. Horwitz describes the firm culture as one of “caring, collaboration, and cooperation.” “We had our origins as a family firm, and one of the things we’ve carried over from those earliest days is our commitment to treating our clients as if they are family,” says Horwitz. “That remains very important to us, as our relationship with our clients is paramount.”
