ABOUT
EAST ROCK LAW

Your Neighborhood Attorney

East Rock Law is a boutique, woman-owned, private legal practice bringing modern and personalized counsel to the people of New Haven and beyond. My goal is to help you understand your rights and the issues affecting your case so that we can get you the results and compensation you deserve.


My job doesn’t stop there. I strive to keep you informed about the details of your case as it evolves directly, not through a paralegal. Other attorneys may be difficult to communicate with or get a hold of, but I guarantee direct, easy to understand, personal guidance every step of the way. Call today for a FREE consultation.*

*Disclaimer: East Rock Law is not a public legal aid organization. Any associated attorneys fees will be discussed during your free consultation.
