Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

Regina is a practical legal advisor, with common business sense and efficiency being her top priorities when counseling clients.

Regina has spent her career focusing on commercial contracts & transactions, as well as intellectual property protection. She has been involved in all aspects of starting, running and selling businesses, including establishing & selling franchises, refinancing multimillion-dollar commercial properties, negotiating buyouts of privately held companies, as well as the formation of Highclere Castle Gin & Cigar. She has obtained federal trademark protection for countless entrepreneurs and successfully protected those marks from competitors and infringers.

For several years, Regina served as an adjunct professor at UConn Law as a Supervising Attorney at UConn’s Intellectual Property & Entrepreneurship Clinic where she counseled local entrepreneurs who otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford legal services, while teaching law students the basics of the practice of law along with the fundamentals of trademark protection.

Regina is the author of two books, Controversial Court Cases in Connecticut, Parts I & II. The books chronicle twelve notorious cases from Connecticut, including the 17th century witch trials, the Amistad case, where African slaves rescued in Connecticut waters were set free, Sheff v. O’Neill, Connecticut’s landmark education & civil rights case, Richard Crafts, aka the Woodchipper Murderer, and James Tillman, an East Hartford native exonerated through DNA testing after serving almost 19 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. The books were published by the Connecticut Bar Association.

Regina graduated with honors from UConn Law where she received her Intellectual Property Certificate. She holds a BA in Journalism & Political Science from UCONN, summa cum laude. She is a member of the Connecticut Bar and is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for CT and the 2nd Circuit.
