Waterbury, Southbury, Conn. – Timothy C. Moynahan, Esq., of Wolcott, named “Super Lawyer of New England and Connecticut” 2009 through 2012 by New England “Super Lawyer” magazine, will be named “Best Criminal Defense Lawyer” in the July 2014 issue of “The “Waterbury Observer” monthly newspaper. The paper’s annual “Best Of Readers’ Poll” awards are tallied from ballot entries provided by their readers. In March and April, the publication published 28,000 ballots asking their 14,000 readers to vote for their favorite businesses, restaurants and community leaders. The free publication is distributed monthly to 350 locations throughout Waterbury, Watertown, Wolcott, Naugatuck, Prospect, Middlebury, Morris, Thomaston and Litchfield, and news is posted news on their website, www.waterburyobserver.com.

“Having practiced in Waterbury for the past 27 years,” responded Moynahan to the award announcement, “I am very pleased with this recognition by local area residents. Having established my practice in Waterbury in 1964, it’s good to know my involvement, and commitment to numerous organizations in the community has been noticed by so many people in the region.”

Moynahan stated that his practice focuses on criminal defense and personal injury, and he collaborates with other area attorneys on corporate and commercial law, appellate law, employment and labor, estate and probate, family law and domestic relations, immigration, intellectual property, international law, real estate and workers’ compensation.

In February of 2014, Moynahan moved The Moynahan Law Firm to 60 North Main Street in Waterbury and expanded offices to 49 Peter Street in Southbury. “After 26 years at 141 East Main Street in Waterbury,” stated Moynahan, “my team and I moved into the beautiful, historically-significant Waterbury Savings Bank building, and established new offices in Southbury. These have been very positive changes, and now being named ‘Best Criminal Defense Lawyer’ in the Waterbury region multiplies these exciting changes and recognitions experienced in the past six months of this year.”

In May 2014, Waterbury-based Post University presented Attorney Moynahan with an Honorary Doctor of Letters Degree during the university’s commencement ceremonies. The Post University Board of Trustees also announced at the ceremonies that they named the law section of the university library after Moynahan. “These are two tremendous achievements and recognitions,” remarked Moynahan. “I simply couldn’t be more pleased and delighted.”

Post University bestowed the honors on Moynahan following his notably generous donation in 2011 of more than 2,000 law books to its library. The donation doubled the university’s collection, making it the largest undergraduate legal studies library in the area. Moynahan is a long-standing member of Post University’s MBA Advisory Board, and the university noted that they had not received such a generous and abundant donation of legal publications.
