Attorney Christian Sarantopoulos has spent the last 23 years protecting the rights of injured people throughout northeastern Connecticut by providing quality legal representation to those hurt as a result of auto accidents, drunk drivers, distracted drivers, slip and falls, dog bites, medical mistakes and malpractice, personal injury, wrongful death and workplace injuries. He regularly appears before the Connecticut courts and before the worker's compensation commission on behalf of his clients. In 1994, Attorney Sarantopoulos founded Sarantopoulos and Sarantopoulos in Danielson with his uncle and mentor, Nicholas Sarantopoulos. They practiced together until Nicholas' retirement in 2010, during which time they developed a reputation for being zealous advocates for their clients. Christian's wife, Rachel Sarantopoulos, joined the firm in 1995 and worked as an attorney there until taking a position with the State of Connecticut Judicial Department in 2015. Today, Christian Sarantopoulos carries on the Sarantopoulos family tradition of putting his clients' interests first above all else. In his spare time, Attorney Sarantopoulos works as an IAABO certified basketball official at the high school and post graduate level. He also enjoys golfing, traveling, reading, vegetable gardening, spending time with his three children and at their school and sport activities, and with the love of his life, his wife Rachel.
