James Welcome


Attorney James A. Welcome provides comprehensive legal advocacy for clients throughout Connecticut, with a focus on personal injury, workers' compensation, immigration law, and criminal law. He provides in-depth representation for those facing trials, arbitration, mediation, and appeals.

Focused Solely on Personal Injury, Workers' Compensation & Immigration

Attorney Welcome strongly believes that by concentrating his practice in just a few select areas of law, he will be able to provide the exceptional legal counsel that his clients deserve. With this specific concentration, he is able to stand before government agencies, large insurance companies and judges in court, both knowing and understanding the laws at hand. This is what separates James Welcome from small general practice offices and large one-stop shopping law firms.
