Jeff Forte has devoted his entire legal career to serving the Connecticut community, advocating and negotiating on behalf of his clients. His experience includes successfully navigating through PPT meetings, negotiations, hearings, mediations and trials. He utilizes his ability to separate people from the problem, to focus on solutions and interests rather than on positions and to base outcomes on objective, measurable criteria as he performs as a negotiator, litigator and advocate.
Jeff is the founding member of Forte Law Group and is one of only very few attorneys in Connecticut that has obtained a Certificate in Special Education Advocacy from the Institute of Special Education Advocacy (ISEA) at William and Mary Law School in Williamsburg, Virginia. He graduated from American University, Washington College of Law where he placed first in his class for trial advocacy and first in his class for best appellate argument at the law school’s mock trial and moot court competitions. While in law school, he was selected to be one of eight student attorneys to serve within the law school’s Third Year Criminal Justice Clinic where he served as a criminal defense attorney for children involved within the juvenile justice system.
