Serving Connecticut Residents for Over 30 Years

When it comes to picking a lawyer, experience matters. At Nugent & Bryant, we believe that if something is worth doing, it is worth doing well. From the earliest days of our founding, we set out to take on only those cases that were worth doing – the types of cases that inspired us to become lawyers in the first place. We take cases in which good, hardworking people had been hurt through no fault of their own. We still use this same philosophy today, over 30 years later. We are one of the region’s premier law firms practicing in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death, tractor-trailer crashes, motorcycle accidents and car accidents.

A Commitment to Effective Trial Advocacy

Accessible. Experienced. Aggressive. These are the key qualities of top trial lawyers. At Nugent & Bryant, Jim Nugent heads up our litigation practice. As lead trial counsel, Jim fights for justice for clients throughout Connecticut in both state and federal courts.

The best trial attorneys know how to tell their clients’ stories. In today’s fast-paced world, we are inundated with news coverage of accidents and tragedies. It is easy to become desensitized to misfortune. Early in his career, Jim learned that being an advocate for his clients meant giving them a voice. It meant humanizing their stories so judges and juries could see beyond the facts to the person underneath. Jim invests tremendous time, energy, and resources in every case he takes on. More importantly, he invests in his clients – in their stories, their struggles, and their goals. Jim has tried over 75 cases, telling the story of each client to ensure they receive the justice and compensation they deserve.

In 1998, Jim became a board-certified Civil Trial Advocate. He is also a member of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, American Association for Justice, American Bar Association, New Haven County Bar Association, New Haven Inn of Court, and the Connecticut Bar Association where he is past Chair of the Litigation Section. He is also a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum – two of the most prestigious groups of trial attorneys in the United States. Membership is limited to those lawyers who have achieved multiple trial verdicts, awards, or settlements of one million dollars or more.

Jim is a member of the The National Trial Lawyers. The National Trial Lawyers is a professional organization composed of the premier trial lawyers from across the country who exemplify superior qualifications as civil plaintiff or criminal defense trial lawyers. This national organization is limited to the top 100 trial lawyers in each state and is by invitation only. Jim is a member of the “The Motor Vehicle Trial Lawyers Association” which is a networked group of attorneys representing injury victims in claims involving motor vehicle accidents and motorcycle accidents.

Jim has been selected to the Connecticut Super Lawyers® list in Super Lawyers Magazine in the area of Personal Injury from 2007-2013. He is also a 1998 graduate of the esteemed Trial Lawyers College, where he now serves in his 10th year as a member of the Board of Directors.

Jim has earned the AV Preeminent® rating – the highest possible rating from Martindale-Hubbell for an attorney for both ethical standards and legal ability. It is achieved only after an attorney has been reviewed and recommended by their peers – members of the bar and the judiciary.
