The Commitment To My Community

When I made Simsbury, Connecticut, my home and the base for my law practice more than 30 years ago, I brought the skills I cultivated as a partner in a large firm to a small-town practice. This change afforded me the opportunity to help my neighbors, their families and their businesses. I am honored to be recognized for over 29 years as an AV-rated lawyer (the highest distinction) by Martindale & Hubbell* and to have been awarded a “Best of” Hartford area attorneys in 2011.

Personalized Legal Attention For Your Needs

When hiring an attorney, you are often at your most vulnerable. You need a lawyer who has the experience, focus and integrity to guide you through the storm. I never rush to judgment, and I give clients time to present their issues. Then I can offer straightforward practical legal advice and work with them to set realistic and useful legal goals. I have years of experience in a wide range of legal areas of practice, including:

  • Business law: Business transactions, dispute resolution, acquisitions and sales, construction, employment matters and general counseling
  • Real estate: Residential and commercial purchases, sales and refinancing
  • Probate and estate planning: Estate planning, including wills, living wills, powers of attorney and special needs, as well as probate administration and disputes
  • Litigation: Extensive litigation experience in business, real estate, construction and employment matters

Every one of my clients gets my full personal attention to their needs. If I take your case, I make a commitment to you.

Your Needs Are My Goals

It is important to me that your goals and needs are met. I am focused on what matters to you most, and I look forward to offering you solutions and peace of mind. Contact me, Charles D. Houlihan, Jr., at 860-495-1493 or through the contact form.
