Kent Mancini- Partner
Kent J. Mancini, a Partner at Cramer & Anderson, excels in litigation—but also recognizes the virtues of settlement, adhering to the philosophy of Abraham Lincoln, who said, “Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. … .”
An attorney whose Practice Areas range from real estate and other transactional work to personal injury, Attorney Mancini is keenly aware of the uncertainty in litigation, especially when a case goes to trial. “Trial should be a last resort if you can’t work out an acceptable settlement,” says the attorney, who has been with Cramer & Anderson since 2007 and was named Partner in 2013.
Settlements obtained by Attorney Mancini include an $800,000 settlement in a case in which a client slipped on ice in a commercial parking lot, for example. When settlements cannot be reached, Attorney Mancini embraces litigation to achieve a successful outcome.
Based at the firm’s Litchfield office, Attorney Mancini represents individual, corporate and public sector clients in a wide range of civil litigation cases, including the prosecution and defense of claims in contract, construction, property, collections, personal injury, zoning, tax appeal, foreclosure, eviction, insurance, and commercial disputes. He handles all phases of civil trial practice, including negotiation, pre-judgment remedies, discovery, mediation, arbitration, trial, appeals, and post-judgment proceedings.
In a notable recent case, Attorney Mancini worked with Partner William Franklin to successfully defend a Connecticut housing authority sued by a factoring company for $2.2 million under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) for a purported wrongful payment over a notice of assignment.
Prior to joining Cramer & Anderson, Attorney Mancini was a legal research clerk for the Connecticut Judicial Branch in the Superior Court of Litchfield. Mancini attended Law School at Widener University in Wilmington, Delaware, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude, and attended college at University of Richmond in Richmond Virginia, from which he graduated Cum Laude.
Attorney Mancini resides in Goshen.
