The Mills Law Firm, LLC stands apart because of the experience of our attorneys, the quality and integrity of our practice, and our willingness to go to trial rather than accept inadequate compensation for a client through a quick settlement.

Based in New Haven, Connecticut, our firm offers quality representation to individuals who are injured and to families who have lost a loved one due to a personal injury accident or negligence. We seek full and fair compensation for clients from Bridgeport, Stamford, Hartford, Milford, Hartford, Waterbury, and throughout New Haven, Fairfield, as well as all of the shoreline towns of eastern Connecticut.

Experienced and Qualified

John Mills has practiced law in Connecticut since 1990. He was formerly a partner in a Bridgeport firm for 13 years, largely focused on insurance defense. As a result, he has extensive trial experience, and has taken more than 50 cases to jury verdict. He also has appellate experience, including cases heard by the Connecticut Appellate Court, the Connecticut Supreme Court, and the 2 nd Circuit Court of Appeals.

Mr. Mills belongs to the Connecticut Defense Lawyers Association and the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association (plaintiffs' bar), and looks at each case from all perspectives.

Other notable qualifications of John W. Mills:

  • Certified as Civil Trial Law Advocate by National Board of Trial Advocacy
  • Qualified to give testimony as an expert in legal malpractice cases
  • Teaches trial practice seminars to Connecticut Bar Association members
  • Appointed by the courts as an arbitrator
  • Appointed to the Grievance Committee for the Ansonia/Milford judicial district
  • Certified as a trial referee to hear prejudicial cases. (Only experienced attorneys are invited by the court to seek pre-trial resolutions among disputants.)
  • Recognized as a Connecticut "SuperLawyer" every year since 2007
  • Recognized by Best Lawyers in America for skills in appellate work (2005, 2006, 2007)

Strong Representation

We try many cases, and we receive many referrals from other attorneys when they cannot reach an acceptable settlement. While the majority of our cases are settled out of court, we provide thorough investigation of accidents and assemble the best experts to make the case on our clients'behalf. This result is the maximum compensation to fully cover losses in a personal injury or wrongful death.

Evening and weekend appointments are available, and we can make "house calls" if you cannot travel to us. We also have Spanish interpreters on staff. We practice in every court in Connecticut, and represent clients throughout the state.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
