Rob Shrage received his Law Degree from Quinnipiac University School of Law, where he was a keen Interscholastic Mock Trial Competitor. As a member of Quinnipiac’s Mock Trial Honor Society, Rob won several regional and national awards.

Rob was admitted to practice law in the State of Connecticut in 2014, and in 2018, Rob was admitted to the Federal Bar for the United States District of Connecticut.

Rob currently focuses on Personal Injury Litigation and Criminal Defense. Rob has fought for the victims of motor vehicle collisions, fall down incidents, assaults, and reckless conduct in personal injury litigation. Rob has also represented the criminally accused in numerous cases throughout the State of Connecticut.

Rob’s litigation experience includes several jury trials, bench trials, restraining order hearings, oral arguments, and DMV per se hearings. At the appellate level, Rob successfully defended his client’s trial verdict before the Connecticut Supreme Court.

Before practicing law, Rob Shrage was an avid competitor in Combat Sports and Mixed Martial Arts.
