Where Justice Is Served

The LaFollette Law Firm is a family-owned and operated law firm that has been providing comprehensive and easy to understand counsel to the people of Fairfield County since 1980. We keep you involved and personally guide you in making important decisions about your life, calmly and effectively. We let you know what is going on and make sure you are familiar with all your options to help you along the way.

Legal and medical issues can consume your daily life. The process is often complicated and can be confusing to the untrained eye, but it's not easy to ask for help. And once you do, it is too common to find law offices that bounce your claim between multiple lawyers and paralegals and don't return calls. Our philosophy is to treat every claim like we would if it were our own. You need representation that cares about you and will fight on your behalf.

Perhaps someone told you to get a will or trust, but you aren't sure. Your bills may be piling up and you need bankruptcy relief. You may be injured and are not receiving benefits from work. We know how overwhelming these life events can be, especially when you are under an enormous amount of stress. This is why our goal is to help you be prepared at all stages of your life and understand your rights and the issues that affect your family and your finances.
