Connecticut Pardons

There has never been a better time to seek a Connecticut pardon. World events and new research has helped create a stronger understanding of the significant impact that a criminal record has on a person’s ability to improve their life. In fact, a law put into effect as of January 2023 requires the members of the Board of Pardons and Paroles to be educated on the impact of a criminal record on housing, education, and employment.

           Given these developments, the latest data shows a dramatic increase in the rate at which pardons are granted! Whereas in 2016, only 62% of the pardons that had been applied for were granted, just 5 years later in 2021, that rate rose to 96%. The pardon attorneys at Bayer & Black are here to help you take advantage of this unique opportunity to expunge your or a loved one’s criminal convictions from their permanent record.

            A pardon can save a life, a family, a job, a career, or maybe just provide a feeling of self-worth and hope.  If you or a loved one are thinking it is time to apply for a pardon, please call Bayer & Black P.C. at 203-762-0751 to discuss how we can help.

Student Discipline Defense

The attorneys at Bayer & Black, P.C. try to put ourselves in this very same role for every student discipline case we take. We fight like it is our own child being targeted.  Sometimes a parent needs help and an attorney is needed to protect the child’s rights to fair play and due process of law. We recognize that anytime a parent and their child call our firm about a school disciplinary issue, it is likely one of the hardest and most trying times in both the  lives of the student and the parent. Our team of zealous advocates know this and are here to fight for you or your child as if they were part of our own family. The conduct at issue can also start with criminal charges being lodged which then results in a mandatory report to the school. The team at Bayer & Black, P.C. handles both criminal charges and school discipline.

Personal Injury

Personal Injury Law is often misunderstood by the general public. Many people picture a guy in a neck brace after a car crash making a false claim to win money. In reality, when you are injured through no fault of your own, a personal injury attorney can see to it that your medical expenses and lost wages are paid for by the responsible person’s insurance company.


If a drunk or careless driver runs a red light, a hotel fails to remove ice in its entryway, or a neighbor’s aggressive dog gets loose and attacks your child, you need experienced representation by a law firm that cares about your recovery and holding the liable party responsible. You need the lawyers at Bayer & Black. Call us today to schedule a consultation.

Family Law

There is often nothing more heart-wrenching than a legal battle involving family members. When you are facing a divorce, a dispute over child custody or support, or a fight for fair spousal support, you need a legal team on your side who understands the complexity and sensitive nature of these cases. At Bayer and Black, P.C., we bring years of experience to every family law case. We fight for our clients’ rights to fair treatment in family disputes and make sure their voices are heard.


Whether you need to get out of a bad marriage or want legal help arranging a fair parenting time plan, we will take the time to understand your legal goals and help you make decisions that are in your best interest as well as those of any children involved. We know these disputes are emotionally and financially draining to everyone involved and we offer sensitive and affordable representation. Call our office in Fairfield County to learn more about our services and fees. Don’t allow yourself to be steamrolled by an aggressive spouse. Get our team on your side today.

Estate Planning

No one likes to think about what will happen to their loved ones after they are gone, but this can be a terrible mistake. Without an estate plan, your assets could be tied up in probate and may not be divided how you envision. You do not have to be wealthy to benefit from a will and trusts—this is a common misconception. If you have children—even adult children—and you have ideas about how you would like your assets to be distributed upon your death, you need to sit down with an estate planning attorney today to spell it all out.

A well-thought-out estate plan is truly a gift for your family. Along with making your wishes for your minor children known, an estate plan will save family members the pain and aggravation of deciding how to divide your assets. It can also eliminate family squabbles and save your heirs hefty taxes and legal fees. Contact our Fairfield County office today to learn about our flat-fee arrangement for estate plans.

Real Estate

You may think your real estate transaction is straightforward and that you can get all the forms you need on the internet. However, what if something goes wrong? This is likely one of the biggest investments you have ever made. Do you want to take the risk that something will fall through? When you trust your real estate transaction or other matter to an experienced real estate attorney, you will have the security of knowing you are doing everything right.


Whether you are buying or selling property, seeking financing for a purchase, or negotiating a lease agreement, our real estate attorneys can make sure the transaction goes through smoothly. If you are facing an issue with a municipality or commission, our attorneys can represent your interests so that your side is heard. Don’t take a risk when valuable property is involved—call our Fairfield County office today.
