Brittany S. Cates

Attorney

""
+Overview

Brittany has over ten years of experience in the area of insurance defense, including medical malpractice and products liability.  Her decade spent defending doctors and hospitals in medical malpractice suits afford Brittany a unique and knowledgeable perspective when advocating for our injured plaintiffs.  She has been named a “Rising Star” by Connecticut and New England Super Lawyers® and, in 2015, was recognized as a “New Leader in Law” by the Connecticut Law Tribune.

A confident litigator, Brittany has always been passionate in the fight for human rights. She was part of the trial team responsible for prosecuting individuals who committed grave violations against citizens of the former Yugoslavia during the Balkan Wars. This experience formed in her a desire to be an advocate on behalf of clients and to hold accountable those responsible for causing unnecessary injuries and losses.

Currently, Brittany serves on the Board of Directors for AIDS Project New Haven, a community non-profit organization dedicated to providing comprehensive services to  individuals and families whose lives have been affected by HIV/AIDS, and to promote prevention of the disease through education. She also serves on the executive committee of the LGBT section of the Connecticut Bar Association and is a member of CTLA.
