Over the past three decades, Mr. Conway has honed his litigation skills in both federal and state courts in Connecticut, establishing himself as a reputable and knowledgeable litigator in the state. In addition to his tenacious approach to personal injury and commercial cases, he also provides astute counsel to clients on nonlitigation matters. Whether it be corporate formation, transactional matters, contract drafting or navigating the labyrinthine world of regulatory compliance, he is well-equipped to handle the legal issues that arise in the day-to-day operations of a business.

Mr. Conway has left no stone unturned to ensure his clients emerge victorious. His legal acumen has been put to the test time and again, as he has argued appeals before eminent courts such as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit, the Connecticut Supreme Court and the Connecticut Appellate Court. Furthermore, his prowess transcends geographical boundaries, as he frequently serves as local Connecticut counsel to global law firms for their legal proceedings in Connecticut's state and federal courts.

After completing his B.S. cum laude in accounting and economics from Lehigh University College of Business in 1985, Mr. Conway earned his J.D. from Fordham University School of Law in 1988. While there, he served as an associate editor for the Fordham Law Review. Upon graduation from law school, he adeptly held the position of law clerk to Judge J. Daniel Mahoney for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit. He then worked at a well-established law firm in New Haven, Connecticut, where he dedicated 11 years to the litigation department. For six of those years, he worked as an associate attorney and five years as a partner.

Licensed in Connecticut in 1989, Mr. Conway was admitted to practice law before the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut (1989) and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit (1992). Furthermore, he has been an active member of the Connecticut Bar Association. He also holds a position on the board of directors for the Milford Yacht Club and presides as the president of the Connecticut branch of the revered Fordham Law Alumni Association. In 2000, he became a valued member of Loughlin FitzGerald, P.C., enhancing the firm's capabilities with his knowledge.
