Brennen also believes that, to truly obtain fair value for his client, the lawyer must be ready, willing and able to take his client’s case to trial.
Committed to using the best technology to help his clients, Brennen is one of the first lawyers in Connecticut to routinely use an IPad at trial for presentation of evidence to the jury, and has been invited to speak before the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association on the use of technology in the courtroom.
