Who We Are

At Nugent & Bryant, we are a team of legal professionals who value service, honesty, and hard work. From our experienced attorneys to our dedicated support staff, we have made it our goal to provide premier legal services to Connecticut residents for over 30 years. Two of our attorneys, James A. Nugent and Stearns J. Bryant, have over 80 years of practice experience between them. Husband-and-wife legal team, Jim Nugent and Julia Nugent, are respected trial lawyers who have a combined 50 years of practice experience between them. Everything we do is driven by the desire to reach higher and achieve more for the clients who put their trust in us.

What We Do

Our attorneys represent people who have been hurt in a variety of personal injury accidents. We also help individuals and their families with real estate, probate, and estate planning matters. Our practice areas include:

  • Catastrophic & personal injury
  • Wrongful death
  • Car & motorcycle accidents
  • Tractor-trailer accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Product Liability
  • Dog bites
  • General civil litigation
  • Probate, wills & real estate closings

A serious accident can stop your life in its tracks. As medical bills pile up, you must also deal with the mental anguish and emotional trauma caused by an unexpected injury. Accident victims often suffer from anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. At Nugent & Bryant, we help accident victims obtain justice for these unfortunate events. Our clients count on us to provide them with compassionate, effective guidance as they navigate the complexities of the legal system. We inform you of every option available to you, from settlement negotiation to litigation, and we do not rest until you receive the compensation you need to get your life back on track.

Our Philosophy

At Nugent & Bryant, we believe that standing out from the crowd is a good thing – especially in law practice. Our uniqueness is one of our best qualities. Whereas most lawyers take every case that crosses their desk, we do not practice that way. We set out to be different, and we have never shied away from that philosophy. Unlike other law firms, we are very selective about the cases we take, even if it means turning down nine out of ten cases that come our way. When we commit to your case, we put everything we have into representing you.

Our clients are more than just case files. In our office, they become partners committed to working toward a common goal. From beginning to end, our trial attorneys take time to personally invest in the people we represent. The relationships we build are transparent, honest and grounded in a deep level of trust. If you value a law firm that is not afraid to stand out from the crowd, you will like what you see at Nugent & Bryant.
