His legal skills and encyclopedic knowledge of the law have helped countless accident and abuse victims receive the compensation and justice they deserve.

He fights tirelessly for those he represents. Eric Reinken is licensed in the State of Connecticut, the Federal courts in New York and Connecticut and the 2d Circuit Court of Appeals. Eric Reinken was appointed the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Board of Governors, Fairfield county Bar Association, Civil Litigation Committee and the American Association for Justice.

The Reinken Law Firm is firmly committed to helping victims of sexual abuse and their families gain the necessary confidence and strength to confront the responsible parties and hold them accountable.

The Reinken Law Firm won a $20 million-dollar verdict for a victim, a woman who was abused by her father when she was a child in Stamford. It was the largest abuse verdict in the state and most likely the largest verdict in this district.
