As senior trial attorney at Papcsy Janosov Roche, Donald Papcsy is dedicated to representing clients in Connecticut and New York. He focuses his practice on handling serious personal injury plaintiff cases, including medical malpractice, as well as serious criminal defense matters, including DUI/DWI cases.

For more than 20 years, Attorney Papcsy has been advocating for victims of negligence to secure much-needed compensation. He understands the significant challenges people face as they deal with catastrophic injuries. Through gathering detailed evidence, quantifying damages and calling in expert witnesses, he constructs compelling arguments to support his clients' cases.

Attorney Papcsy has obtained millions of dollars on behalf of his clients. He is a skilled trial attorney and a fearsome adversary in the courtroom. In one notable case, he secured $4.1 million for the estate of a 13-year-old boy who was killed when a vehicle struck him as he crossed the street in a crosswalk. For this and other successes, Mr. Papcsy has been invited to join the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and he holds an Avvo "Superb" rating. In 2015, Attorney Papcsy was inducted into the Connecticut Law Tribune Personal Injury Hall of Fame, and has been selected to the Super Lawyers list for multiple years

He is active in the legal community, holding memberships with the American Association for Justice, the Connecticut Bar Association, the Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association.
