Why Arch?

The arch is a solution to a barrier. It is one of the oldest and single most important architectural discoveries in human history. Its strong pillars support immense weight and allow movement forward. The arch has also been known to symbolize victory and triumph. We believe the arch represents the experience, strength, and ingenuity that our law firm offers our clients.

We provide a broad range of legal services with individualized focus in injury law, business transactions, real estate, and estate planning and administration. We are not a mass production law firm. Your calls get through, we carefully review developments in your case, and guide you through resolution.

As an elected official on a municipal Land-Use Board, I value Attorney Rutkowska’s excellent listening and communication skills as much as her well-researched, pragmatic legal guidance that is informed by her extensive experience practicing CT Land Use Law on behalf of both municipalities and individuals. She is responsive when I or staff reach out to her with legal or procedural questions, and she has successfully defended our Board’s decisions in court. She has earned my trust and that of our Board.

Attorney Rutkowska is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is direct, efficient, extremely knowledgeable, and thorough. Her expertise in land use matters is extensive, which has been very helpful when needing guidance on interpretation of zoning regulations, wetland regulations, and state statutes. Most of all Attorney Rutkowska is accessible and responsive.

As the managing partner of a consulting company providing strategic services to large corporations and government entities, we are frequently made a party to large law suits. Many of these cases dwarf the resources of our relatively small consulting business. Attorney Rutkowska and her firm provided us the legal guidance to protect our company’s interests in the proceeding along with practical advice to help us maintain good relations with our client. Their services are timely and efficient. We are very appreciative and will not hesitate to engage the Arch Law Group in the future.

As chair of a municipal commission, I have worked with Attorney Rutkowska on multiple cases over the years involving enforcement and litigation. Her knowledge of the statute, familiarity with the judicial system and knowledge of the regulatory process have been invaluable to me and the commission. She explains complex legal issues in a simple, understandable way, and summarizes the various options along with their pros and cons. Through her guidance she consistently positions our commission to enforce its regulations while minimizing our legal expenses and exposure.

AnnMarie Cienava Rocco from Arch Law Group represented me when another driver rear-ended my car and I was injured. She provided dedicated and professional services. She and her firm went above and beyond my expectations to be sure to get me the settlement I deserved. I would not hesitate to use Arch Law Group and Attorney Rocco again.

Cathie V.Durham, CT

It has been a pleasure working with Attorney Rutkowska for the past few years. Her knowledge, insights, poise and demeanor in meetings is an invaluable asset. She informs the board of relevant issues and potential problems, and assists through its decision making process greatly. Overall she makes my job easier and clearer. I would recommend her to any town looking for smart, experienced legal representation.

Dan B.Old Lyme, CT

I have hired Attorney Alex Sarris to represent me in a few different cases. He always has my best interest at heart and will fight for you to get you the best outcome for your case. I will always go with Attorney Sarris to represent me. I’m so happy I found him.

Donna S.Meriden, CT

The attorneys of Arch Law Group have made a very difficult case and time in my life as smooth as possible.

I highly recommend the attorneys of Arch Law Group as it is clear they are collaborative and genuinely interested in guiding their clients.
