Christopher Cerami, the most recent associate to join the firm, advocates on behalf of people who have suffered physical injuries to obtain the compensation necessary to treat their injuries and rebuild their lives and also defends the rights of those involved in the criminal justice system.
Born in Bethpage, NY, Chris and his family moved to Orange, Connecticut where he completed his early education. Chris graduated from the University of New Haven, Magna cum laude, and attended the University of Connecticut School of Law, where he honed his defense skills in the criminal law clinic.
Upon graduation and admission to the bar, Chris opened a solo practice in New Haven, Connecticut. From the very beginning, Chris prided himself on finding a way to help clients that other lawyers had given up.
In addition to handling personal injury and criminal matters, Chris represented the plaintiff in a significant business dispute involving violations of the Connecticut Unfair Practices Act, helped victims of workplace sexual harassment and racial discrimination recover compensation and he was co-counsel on a federal employment case in which he represented an employee terminated for exercising her right to free speech.
Seeking to expand the legal resources available to his clients, Chris decided to join the firm in 2019. At the firm, Chris continues to practice in the areas of personal injury, criminal law and employment law, while expanding his experience in general litigation matters.
Outside of the office, Chris has always had a passion for performance arts and contributed to his educational expenses performing standup comedy at various venues across the state, including a fundraising event for the New Haven County Bar Association. Chris also enjoys listening to Frank Sinatra on vinyl and reading books on historical and current events.
