Jacobs, Grudberg, Belt, Dow & Katz P.C.

At Jacobs, Grudberg, Belt, Dow & Katz, P.C., our motto is Excellence. You are never just another claim or case file. We limit the nature and number of cases we accept to insure that we are able to spend time working one-on-one with all our clients. We view our representation of you as a relationship, rather than just a "transaction."

Whatever the legal problem you are facing, we are here to advise you, advocate for you, and protect your rights and interests.

JGBD&K is committed to understanding our clients’ needs and serving those needs with excellence. The firm has a long tradition of service to the people and businesses of Connecticut, and continues in that tradition today. We pride ourselves on our contributions to communities in the New Haven, CT area and on being known and respected in those communities. Our lawyers appear in court every day, in the courts of New Haven and throughout the state. We know how to prepare a case for trial, and how to try it, a rare skill. Unlike many smaller specialized law firms, JGBD&K believes in mixing criminal defense work, family law work, a personal injury practice, and business work under one roof. We believe this mix of clients and disciplines keeps us sharp, and benefits our clients – people’s lives are never so simple that they can be reduced to any one legal formula.
