About Chris DeMatteo

Christopher DeMatteo is a Connecticut attorney licensed to practice in Connecticut state and federal courts and state courts of Wisconsin. Chris was born and raised in and around New Haven. After graduating from Xavier High School in Middletown, he earned his bachelor’s degree at Boston College. He returned home and worked as a sports writer for the Harbor News and Valley Courier newspapers. Desiring to leave the northeast for at least a little while, Chris moved to Milwaukee and attended Marquette University Law School. As much as he enjoyed the Brew City and its many brews, Chris returned home once again to practice law in Connecticut.

After serving as an associate attorney for Bristol-based personal injury firm Jazlowiecki & Jazlowiecki, Chris opened his own firm, DeMatteo Law, LLC, in New Haven in 2012. The firm focuses its practice on criminal defense and civil litigation, both at the trial and appellate levels. Chris moved his office to Hamden in December 2015.

An avid reader and writer, Chris aspires to write legal thrillers. Outside of law and literature, his interests include watching and playing sports, cooking and eating barbecue, road trips and history.
