Attorney Richard Zayas

Attorney Zayas, the founder of Zayas Law Firm, has been practicing law in the Hartford area since 1990 and has represented thousands of victims in accident cases such as motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, and medical malpractice. He has tried many jury cases particularly representing clients injured in motor vehicle and slip and fall accidents. He has also briefed and argued cases before the Supreme and Appellate Court of the State of Connecticut.

For over ten years Attorney Zayas has been presenting the program La ley y Usted (“The Law and You”), a local radio program he founded, every Wednesday at noon time on WPRX 1120 AM. He has also prepared and conducted many special programs dealing with Caribbean music, his second passion.
