Robert Gould

The principal of Gould Injury Law, Robert Gould, has spent the last 18 years fighting hard to win cases for injured victims. He works fast and aggressively to maximize case values and resolve cases quickly. While some lawyers use a lot of words to describe their successes, Attorney Gould relies on his record of satisfied clients and significant results. Contact Gould Injury Law now to discuss your claim and find out just how responsive and aggressive Attorney Gould is.

For Robert Gould, working hard to obtain justice isn’t just a job for him, it’s in his blood. As the son of a retired law school professor and grandson of Samuel Gould, a prominent lawyer in Connecticut, Robert always knew that he wanted to be a lawyer.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts from Ithaca College in 1995, he attended New England Law and graduated cum laude with a Juris Doctorate Degree in 1999. While at law school, Robert earned the prestigious Cali Award for Excellence in Negotiating which really set him on his path to becoming a skilled negotiator.

Upon graduation from law school, he worked briefly for an insurance company before realizing that his calling was to help injured victims, not figure out how to take advantage of them. This realization brought him to a personal injury firm in New York where he worked as the senior litigation attorney spending his days representing injury victims in all 5 boroughs of New York City.

In 2006, Robert decided to return to his roots in Connecticut and began working as an associate at a large personal injury firm. Very quickly, Robert rose to take on a leadership role at the firm and began training younger associates on negotiating tactics; however, he grew frustrated with some of the ‘red tape’ that came with a large company.

In April 2012, Robert opened his own firm, Gould Injury Law, with a very unique and clear mission:

Gould Injury Law will settle cases as fast as possible.

Where other firms might allow cases to sit around for a variety of reasons, his firm would not. Following this mission, the firm has grown incredibly fast under Robert Gould’s leadership and thousands have benefitted from his unique negotiating ability and settled their cases fast.

Robert, his wife, and their 4 children reside on the shoreline. He spends his free time coaching his kids’ sports teams, getting involved in their school activities, and trying to squeeze in a little time at the beach.

Jason T. Prueher

Jason T. Prueher is an experienced trial lawyer, who solely represents injured individuals. He provides a voice for the injured in need. He has been practicing law since 2002 and has an appreciation for how insurance companies view his clients. He is always willing to fight to get full value for his clients’ injuries.

Jason has a proven track record of resolving cases favorably for his clients. In 2016, he resolved a case for $2,100,000 against a medical institution for failing to properly recognize, diagnose and treat an elderly patient’s back fracture. Such a fracture rendered his client paralyzed for the rest of her life. Additionally, some of his recent results include:

v  $225,000 settlement, at mediation, against a medical institution for failing to properly administer breathing treatments to an elderly patient, leading to his death;

v  $95,000 settlement, pre-suit, for a slip and fall on a sidewalk;

v  $85,000 settlement, prior to jury selection, against a nursing home for improperly allowing a patient to fall out of bed; and

v  $77,500 settlement, pre-suit, for burns from a cleaning product.

Jason knows what it takes to persevere. His mother left her native Colombia to come to New York and, eventually, Connecticut. Jason was part of his family’s first generation to be born in the United States. He has grown up with an appreciation of what is fair, just and equitable.

Jason grew up in Ellington, CT. He graduated Clark University and, in 2001, obtained his law degree from The University of Connecticut School of Law. At UConn, he was a member of the Moot Court Board and the Latino Law Students Association. After law school, he spent years practicing law in Manhattan and throughout Connecticut, concentrating on cases involving injured individuals.

Currently, Jason serves as the Vice President of the Connecticut Hispanic Bar Association, an organization deeply devoted to advocating for underrepresented Latinos. Jason has been active in the community, volunteering to teach students at Fairfield Warde High School. Additionally, he has served as a judge for mock trial competitions.

Jason resides in Fairfield with his wife and two-boys. With the help of his wife, he strives to teach Spanish to his boys. In the past, Jason played soccer at Clark University and, now, he enjoys coaching his boys. In his free time, he enjoys mountain biking and spending time with his dog, Messi.
