We are pleased to share with you some of the feedback we've received from clients we have represented and colleagues we have worked with.
"Prior to even meeting Attorney Allen, he responded to my emails and was very thorough. I met with him for a consultation for a custody case and my mind is already at ease. I was very nervous because this is new to me but he was very easy to talk to! Looking forward to working with him more and getting these issues ironed out!"
"Anyone who has been in the Bar and/or Restaurant business knows the feeling of being sued for something beyond your control. I have been in the business for more than 20 years and have seen my share of suits against me and others that should have never gone to court. Jan Trendowski and his Firm have represented me for 90% of these cases and I have NEVER been disappointed with the outcome. At times I have been more than frustrated with the situation. Jan and his staff have calmed me down, explained the plan of attack, every possible outcome, and how to deal with each one. This means he also thinks of the"God forbid" situation that will help you plan for the worse. I have been involved with two cases that went all the way to jury, and if you have never been through this it is not fun. Jan and his staff are fantastic at keeping you informed, calm, and ready for anything. I would highly recommend Jan for any type of lawsuit." Bill, a Liquor Liability Client
"Attorney Allen was phenomenal in handling my divorce. He kept me informed at all times and answered every question I had without making me feel like it was a silly question. He was highly professional as well as personable. He treated me like an individual and not just a nameless, additional case." A Divorce Client
"The only attorney I would even think of using! As the owner of a restaurant and nightclub, my company has relied on Mr. Trendowski in all matters legal for many years. He has proven to be the only attorney that I have ever dealt with that thinks "out of the box." Each and every situation we have been in is unique, and Mr. Trendowski deals with each situation in a unique way. He never takes the shortcut and never uses a boiler plate response. He explains everything clearly and is willing to hear your point of view. I would totally recommend Mr. Trendowski and his firm for all matters in liquor law liability, which is just one of the areas in which we have retained him. He has also represented us in other circumstances that come up in my chosen field and is excellent in trial." Michael, an Insurance Client
"Greg Allen helped me with a situation I had with my ex-husband. He gave me some good advice and a better understanding of the issue. He is easy to talk to and very personable. I will always recomend him to my family and friends." Sandra, a Child Custody Client
"Attorney Trendowski represented me as a defendant in a lawsuit involving a motor vehicle accident. I have never been sued before and was understandably unnerved by the lawsuit. Attorney Trendowski and his staff helped ease that anxiety. They were incredibly responsive and worked with me at every step of the process to make sure I was comfortable and knew what was going on. During the actual trial Attorney Trendowski presented a reasonable, no nonsense case in my defense, which I feel was the integral part of why we won. I am very pleased not only with the results of my case, but with the service, time and respect I received throughout the process. I would highly recommend Attorney Trendowski."
"Prior to hiring Greg Allen to handle my divorce and child custody with my ex there was another attorney handling my case. The first attorney made my head spin and didn't care about not one thing but his pocket. When Greg came aboard it was night and day. I finally felt a sense of ease and hope that things finally started to go in my favor. Greg's extensive knowledge of divorce and child custody was apparent the moment he sent his first set of paperwork to my ex wife's attorney. He has made my life as a single father much easier knowing that as a single father I have rights and has made me understand things in plain English when it comes to divorce and child custody." Joe
"Jan has been appointed as the Legal Director of our nonprofit animal welfare organization and has been an outstanding asset to the organization as well as advocate against animal abuse. Jan created a task force team that keeps abreast of animal related legislature and any changes in the law. In addition, Jan voluntarily created an animal law newsletter to engender a healthy respect for animals and to support laws protecting our furry, hoofed and feathered friends. The newsletter is also a free service to the community for anyone who wishes to receive it. Outside the animal welfare world, Jan's firm has also helped many acquaintances of mine in civil matters and each of them could not be more satisfied with the level of expertise and professionalism provided to them. I will continue to highly recommend Jan and his firm to any in need of a great lawyer. These endearing qualities in Jan show compassion and care unlike any lawyer I have ever dealt with." Cindy
"Attorney Allen made our closing process easy. He was accommodating to our situation and he took the time to explain everything to us in terms that we could understand. He was thoughtful and respectful. We would highly recommend Attorney Allen." Betsy
"By now you probably have all heard about the fantastic job our attorney - Jan Trendowski, Esq. - did for us in defending Eli's On Whitney in a Dram Shop Claim lawsuit. Jan is the leading authority in Connecticut on our Liquor Control Laws and their application to the proper operation of our businesses and his expertise certainly helped us." Steve
"I was very happy with my experience working with Attorney Allen on my child support case. He was extremely knowledgeable, well prepared, thorough, and articulate. He clearly practices with the highest standards. With all this said, I still found him to be personable, caring, and easy to work with." Allison
"I have had the privilege to be represented by Mr. Trendowski in a liquor dram case. The case went to trial for several days and Mr. Trendowski's knowledge of the liquor liability laws in the State of Connecticut allowed us to be found not guilty. During a very stressful time Attorney Trendowski was calm and collective in the courtroom. When it comes to liquor liability in the State of Connecticut Mr. Trendowski has the experience necessary to protect nightclubs and bars. I am very thankful for his hard work and ability to get the job done in the courtroom."
"I was referred to this lawyer by a family friend and it was the best thing I have done. They are very knowledgeable with many professional resources, keep you well informed and on top of all matters. Communications is fantastic along with over and above the typical service you would expect. Jan has taken a huge load off my shoulders and made life much better in the trust I have with him and his associates and right down to all the office personnel." Michael
"Attorney Allen is a great person, which is a nice plus when you are in a position of needing someone with his services and he can put you at ease. As a contractor, I occasionally run into situations when customers do not pay their account in full, when a subcontractor does not fulfill his contractual duties plus various other "bumps in the road." I would definitely recommend Attorney Allen and will continue to use him in the future." Colin
Mr. Trendowski is a great lawyer. He fights for his clients to the end. I would recommend him to anyone who may be in need. He goes well beyond what you would expect from a litigator. On a scale of one to ten, I would rate him an eleven." Brian
"Attorney Allen is a long-time friend and great attorney. He is someone you can trust to have your best interests first or foremost. I have utilized his services many times in my real estate career, through representation of my clients, and also through personal real estate transactions. He is very responsive, which is something I pride myself on and welcome it in an attorney. I would recommend him and his office at any time for any real estate or other matters other than, as well. Great thing about Greg is that if he feels that he can't be the right representative for your case he is very willing to provide suggestions to get the task taken care of." Kevin
"I am so glad to have found this website as it is not often enough that we are able to express our appreciation for a job well done; and that is most certainly how I feel about the services of Attorney Trendowski and his associates. My initial introduction to Attorney Trendowski was when he was recommended to me just over 10 years ago. At that time he gave me insight into a pending issue I was having with the liquor commission. He supplied me with the reference material I needed, a plan of action on how to handle the matter as well as the understanding that I did not need to hire an attorney at that time. All at no cost. The second time I had the opportunity to work with Jan Trendowski and his associates was in a court case over the past few years which ultimately lead to the case against me being withdrawn. Attorney Trendowski was always well prepared, knowledgeable and he kept me well informed. It was quite a surprise for me to see first hand how many lawyers as well as students sat in during our court time to learn from my attorney. I was proud that he was my council and would gladly and definitively recommend his services to anyone." Steven
Greg Allen is beyond reproach and yet makes himself very "approachable" to his clients. He is an easy going person who does not give you the "artificial stuffy attitude" that some attorneys tend to have, yet he has dealt with some very difficult and delicate situations on my behalf and that of my company, with a great deal of tact and composure. I would, and do, happily recommend Gregory Allen." Allison
"Jan possesses the highest degree of trial skills, professionalism and his character is beyond reproach. I have worked with Jan and have found his work for our mutual clients to be exemplary." Steve
"I have worked with Greg and his firm for over five years. He is honest and forthright in his dealings and always works his hardest to get a successful result for his client." A Litigation Client
"I am privileged to know Jan for many years, and endorse him without reservation. He is an excellent lawyer, always thorough and prepared, and works extremely hard for his clients. He is courteous, professional, and well respected by the bench and bar."
