As one of the most experienced personal injury trial attorneys in the Hartford region, Frank is certified in civil trial law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, an ABA-accredited organization that certifies attorneys who demonstrate proficiency and experience in civil trial fields — a distinction as a specialist that fewer than 0.5 percent of Connecticut lawyers achieve.
Frank’s mission as an attorney is to give each case the same degree of dedication and commitment, so that the insurance company pays full and fair compensation to our clients, according to what the damages and circumstances call for. His passion is ignited when he sees insurance companies taking advantage of injured accident victims and trying to find the easiest way out of a full repayment.

Types of Cases We Handle
McCoy & McCoy has been representing auto accident victims throughout Connecticut for more than five decades. We know what it takes to win. Our legal practice is 100 percent devoted to personal injury law, which means that we ONLY represent those who have been wrongfully injured or who have lost a loved one in a preventable car accident.
When a car or any vehicle smaller than a multi-ton truck collides with a semitruck, the driver of the passenger vehicle often has no chance of avoiding a serious injury. Fortunately, the law provides the victims of such accidents with certain rights, including the right to pursue compensation from the responsible party.
If you have suffered from a motorcycle accident caused by another person’s negligence or carelessness, then both your immediate and long-term response can affect your ability to recover the compensation you are owed. It is vital to have an experienced and devoted personal injury lawyer on your side as early as possible.
It is not uncommon for serious injuries to occur after a serious accident. The injury victim can be left with permanent, disfiguring injuries that will change the course of his or her life forever. If you or someone you love has sustained serious injuries in a preventable accident, we urge you to consult an experienced personal injury attorney from McCoy & McCoy as soon as possible.
