Jay B. Levin serves as of counsel at Suisman Shapiro Attorneys-at-Law. He is principally engaged in government relations consulting.
Mr. Levin attended Connecticut College in New London, graduating Magna Cum Laude. After attending the University of Connecticut School of Law he was appointed the first full-time Deputy Assistant State’s Attorney in New London County.
He served on boards of the New London County Day School and Big Brothers and Big Sisters (which he ultimately chaired). He also served for many years as the legal counsel to the Connecticut College Alumni Association, as well as presiding Justice for the New London Lodge of Elks.
He became Chair of Zoning Board of Appeals and Chair of the Charter Revision Commission that created New London’s Planning & Zoning, Water & Water Pollution Authority and Ethics Commission. Mr. Levin became deeply involved in charitable giving for the local New London Jewish Federation, becoming Chair of its fundraising efforts and President of the Federation.
He was also selected to serve as the first member from New London of the Young Leadership Cabinet of the United Jewish Appeal. Mr. Levin currently serves on the Board of the Connecticut Landmarks Association and as Vice President of the Steel Point Special Taxing District Board.
In 1980, Mr. Levin left the State’s Attorney’s office and joined the firm of Dupont & Tobin, LLC, handling a wide range of matters in the general practice of law from business formation to wills and probate and family.
His practice focused on matters of concern to working families from workers compensation to civil and criminal litigation. Encouraged by his partners he entered back into politics as a candidate having previously run campaigns and served for many years as a State Representative from New London.
After narrowly losing the nomination for Attorney General to Richard Blumenthal, Mr. Levin founded a government relations practice in his New London law firm. He then took that practice to Pullman & Comley, LLC. in Bridgeport, and in 1999 formed Levin, Powers & Brennan, LLC. in Hartford.
