To Our FGSB Clients and Friends:


Life is slowly returning to normal. As they say on TV, it’s likely to be a “new normal”, but here at FGSB we are enthused. We hope we emerge from the current situation having learned a thing or two.


Our local courthouse in Middletown will be re-opening on a limited basis, while courthouses in New Haven, Hartford and Norwich continue to be open on a limited basis. That will help us to process a larger variety and number of legal matters. One of the results of recent events has been that the Court system has grown proficient in holding video conferences for settlement conferences and administrative issues. That’s likely to continue, simply because it is an efficient way of doing business.


We have had a similar experience in our office. We are scheduling limited in-office appointments (taking appropriate precautions in the process) for our clients and potential clients. In addition, however, we have learned that there are some matters which do not require our clients to travel to us. We find ourselves scheduling telephonic and video conferences simply because they may save our clients time and money.


We’re not too different from any other household or business. Just like you we have cleaned the basement and checked what supplies have been stored in the back of closets. More importantly, we have taken to this time to look at all aspects of our operation looking for areas where we can improve our delivery of legal services.


Change is sometimes difficult, especially when forced upon us by events outside our control, but, here at FGSB, we have embraced change for the benefit of our practice and our clients. We look forward not only to all of this, but to seeing some familiar faces.

Welcome to FGSB

The cornerstone of our practice is a sense of professionalism. This involves providing our clients with the highest possible level of legal services.  It also includes the personal satisfaction that comes with a job well done.


We value a sense of collegiality. The lawyers in this firm are a diverse group and have varied areas of practice, but we work in an atmosphere of mutual respect. Cases are discussed. Clients are placed with the attorney who can best do the job.


Firm mentality--We practice as a firm, in part, because it is economical to do so.  Beyond that, sharing the administrative burdens allows each of us to focus our attention on the substantive areas of practice that interest us.


Atmosphere–We have confidence in our work product but are not arrogant. Clients should find us relaxed and approachable.


Legal Fees–We do not hide the fact that we charge for our legal services. Our goal is not to be the least expensive law firm, but the law firm that delivers the best value for our clients.


Role of Attorneys–We face the challenges of a rapidly changing society.  We know that the needs of our clients are constantly changing, and our role must adapt to meet those needs.
