Betsy Ingraham is a trial lawyer. She has tried more than twenty cases to verdict in Connecticut’s state and federal courts, winning a string of remarkable victories for her clients. Representing plaintiffs, Betsy has obtained multiple seven- and eight-figure verdicts, including the largest plaintiff’s verdict in Connecticut in 2016. Representing defendants, she obtained a complete defense verdict for the only officer-involved shooting fatality to go to trial in Connecticut in the last 25 years.
In addition to her exceptional experience as a trial lawyer, Betsy has also argued multiple cases before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, the Connecticut Supreme Court, and the Connecticut Appellate Court.
Betsy’s outstanding advocacy has won her recognition by Best Lawyers and SuperLawyers, among other honors. She is also a proud member of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association (CTLA).
