The personal injury law firm of Tremont & Sheldon is pleased to announce that it has changed its name to Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney P.C. The name change proudly reflects the major contributions and commitment of our attorneys over the years. "The name change is symbolic of the strength of our firm now and into the future - we will continue to fight for our clients' rights and give them the voice they deserve," said Attorney Jason Tremont.
Cindy Robinson has been a partner with the firm for 22 years and has been a successful litigator and trial attorney specializing in claims of medical malpractice and sexual abuse of children. In 2003, Ms. Robinson was one of ten attorneys nationwide to be named "Lawyer of the Year" by Lawyers Weekly USA as a result of her successful representation of clergy abuse victims. She is a Civil Trial Advocate for the National Board of Trial Advocacy and a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America. In 2014, Ms. Robinson was honored to become the first woman in Connecticut to be named a Fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, which limits membership to 500 Fellows from the U.S. Ms. Robinson is also recognized by The Best Lawyers in America® as one of the top personal injury lawyers in the country. She was named the Best Lawyers' 2011 and 2012 Stamford Area Lawyer of the Year for plaintiffs' personal injury litigation and the Best Lawyers' 2014 Stamford Area Lawyer of the Year for plaintiffs' medical malpractice law.
Douglas Mahoney has been with the firm for 22 years and named a partner in 2000. He has been a successful trial attorney specializing in claims of sexual abuse of children and complex litigation. He has served as the President of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association and as the President of the Greater Bridgeport Bar Association. He has been listed as one of the top 50 attorneys in Connecticut and top 100 in New England by the publication, Super Lawyers®. He has been recognized as one of the top personal injury attorneys in the country by Best Lawyers®. He is board certified as a civil trial specialist. Mr. Mahoney has tried many jury cases to verdict and the type of cases he has tried spans the spectrum of personal injury law. However, two multimillion dollar verdicts in particular stand out. The jury in the Estate of Blackwell v. Town of Seymour, et al held the defendant town responsible for the failure of its off-duty police officer to stop a drunk driver, resulting in the death of Mr. Mahoney's client. In the case of Tim Doe v. St. Francis Hospital, the jury held the defendant hospital responsible for the sexual abuse of Mr. Mahoney's client by one of its doctors some 40 years earlier.
"The addition of Cindy Robinson's and Douglas Mahoney's name to our law practice has been made for their extraordinary contributions to the firm and the firm's clients," said Attorney Robert Sheldon. "We will continue to devote our practice to personal injury trial work, giving each case the attention it deserves so that we can successfully obtain all possible recoveries for our clients."
