Ephraim J. Fink

Special Counsel

Ephraim Jacob (“EJ”) Fink has been a fixture in the Connecticut and New York Courts since 2000.  Over the course of his career, he has represented dozens of insurance carriers and their policyholders, as well as corporations, product manufacturers, and healthcare facilities in matters involving negligence and contract claims. EJ has also represented numerous individuals in the areas of personal injury, family law, employment, estate matters and education. 

EJ focuses on guiding clients throughout the entire legal process, from the inception of a claim to the close of a file. His vast experience allows him to counsel clients on the most strategic and effective course of action for efficient resolution, whether through settlement negotiations, mediation, arbitration or jury trial. 

Early in his career, EJ clerked for the Superior Court of Connecticut in the Bridgeport, New Haven and Stamford Judicial Districts. During this time, he primarily assisted in criminal law research and writing, and he provided legal support in the high-profile and sensationalized Michael Skakel-Martha Moxley murder case. He then spent seven years at one of the country's largest insurance defense firms, managing and trying a wide variety of cases throughout the five boroughs of New York. The majority of these claims involved negligence, professional liability, product liability, employment, commercial contract disputes and medical malpractice liability matters. EJ also defended New York City area hospitals at Environmental Control Board hearings. 

EJ graduated from Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communications with a degree in journalism and thereafter obtained his juris doctor at New England Law–Boston where his dean's list grade average earned him an associate editor position on the New England Journal on Criminal and Civil Confinement. EJ also took part in a prosecution clinic where the DA's office permitted him to conduct a DUI bench trial as a student. 

EJ is a licensed member of the Bar in Connecticut and New York State and is also admitted to practice in the Federal District Courts of Connecticut, New York's Southern and Eastern Districts, and the Supreme Court of the United States.
