Attorney Michael L. Anderson joined his father, Carl, and brother, Christopher, in the practice of law in 2004, handling personal injury and workers’ compensation claims. Michael takes great pride in the fact that this is a family law firm, and he makes it a point to let each client know that his family is here to assist their family with any legal issue.

Michael earned his Juris Doctor degree, cum laude, from Vermont Law School in 2004. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree, summa cum laude, from the University of Connecticut in 1996 and a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of New Hampshire in 1993. He is a graduate of Norwich Free Academy, Class of 1989.

Michael is a member of the Connecticut and New London County Bar Associations and is admitted to practice in the State of Connecticut and the United States District Court, District of Connecticut, as well as the Mohegan Tribe’s Gaming Disputes Court and Tribal Court.

Michael is on the Board of Directors of Madonna Place, a Norwich non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening families and preventing child abuse and neglect in eastern Connecticut. He presently serves the Town of North Stonington as the Vice Chairman of the Board of Finance and prior to that he served on the Town’s School Modernization Committee and the Ad Hoc School Building Committee. He has coached his daughters’ rec and indoor soccer teams since 2011.

Michael is thoroughly committed to protecting a crucial component of our democracy: the civil jury system. He has tried several cases with complex liability issues, and firmly believes in the jury’s ability to listen to and understand the evidence in order to render fair, just, and reasonable verdicts. To that end, Michael is an active member of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association of Justice, organizations whose main goal is to protect this most valuable institution.

He and his wife, Heather, reside in North Stonington with their amazing daughters – Ellen and Ingrid.

I could not have asked for an easier, stress free way to handle my legal business. I dealt with Mike mostly and it was a pleasure, but the staff was great too! Definitely a positive experience and a PROFESSIONAL I'm glad to have in my circle.

For thirty years, we have never faced a vendor-related contract failure... but it finally happened.We turned to the compassionate team at Anderson and Anderson, for our goal was a resolution that met the needs of clients and agency but didn't turn into something nasty or not reflective of our corporate culture.Chris and his team at Anderson and Anderson were professional, calm and supportive. Through a strong and guiding presence, they helped us successfully negotiate a settlement with a vendor that failed to deliver as promised.While it was a challenge to experience this process, Chris translated the legal-ease and clearly protected our best interests and that of our client. We could not have been more pleased or grateful for his guidance and support.I can clearly envision how he would protect those injured and in need of a skilled advocate. We had to go to court, and other clients may have to do so, as well. Ultimately it really matters who you choose to be your representative: someone who says "they will fight for you," or someone who has a proven record of walking into a courtroom to fight on your behalf.

If anyone is looking for a lawyer who will eloquently fight for you, believe in you and provide the best care, Chris, and all the lawyers at Anderson Law Firm, provides all of the above and more. Thank you Anderson Law Firm!
