Recent Case Results

At Papcsy Janosov Roche Trial Lawyers, we possess extensive experience negotiating, settling, and trying cases in the Norwalk, Stamford, Bridgeport and New Haven courts, as well as experience throughout all Connecticut and New York courts. We pride ourselves on the results we have attained for our personal injury and criminal defense clients. Our attorneys have had multiple verdicts reported in the National Verdict Reporter, as well as the Personal Injury Yearbook, and have argued cases before the Supreme Court of Connecticut. If you have a personal injury or criminal defense case, Papcsy Janosov Roche Trial Lawyers has the proven track record of success to match.

Expertise Equals Results: Papcsy Janosov Roche recently won a $4.1 million dollar result for the family of a 13-year-old child that was run over and killed by a Town of Stratford employee while driving a Town dump truck. Using our experience suing municipalities in past high-value cases, and utilizing our resources and experts, we were able to bypass the Town’s immunity and prove that it was responsible for the poor maintenance of the vehicle and the insufficiencies of its driver.

Over 3,500 pages of motions, thousands of dollars in expert fees paid upfront by the firm, and over a thousand work hours drove the value to the point of achieving a result that was featured in a full-page article in the prominent Connecticut Law Tribune, as well as receiving statewide media attention. Papcsy Janosov Roche Trial Lawyers donated a portion of their fee to help set up a charity in the young man’s name.
