Oscar Suarez is a partner at Halloran Sage, a Connecticut-based law firm that handles transactional and litigation work. He practices in the areas of commercial law, business litigation and insurance defense. Suarez represents financial institutions and creditors involved in foreclosures and loan recovery, lender liability claims, landlord-tenant issues, and loan restructuring.

He also represents clients in all facets of title disputes, including priority claims, reformation of mortgages, and quiet title actions.

What’s been your biggest professional accomplishment so far in your career?

As co-chair of Halloran Sage’s pro bono committee, I work with Connecticut Veterans Legal Center to manage eviction defense cases for veterans facing homelessness. As a result of this work, my firm was awarded the 2019 Pro Bono Award from the Hartford County Bar Association Law Day Committee.

How are you involved in the community?

I will be coaching my fifth season of youth soccer, where I’ve coached both boys’ and girls’ teams. I am on the board of New Haven Reads, an organization focused on increasing literacy skills of children. During winter, my family and I deliver food through FISH of Greater New Haven.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work I like to stay active with my wife and children. We play a lot of sports together, which includes coaching my childrens’ soccer and baseball teams. I also like to travel, with recent trips to Europe and Disney World.

Four reasons why you deserve to be a 40 Under Forty:

• Advanced to partner this year as a result of a drive to achieve successful outcomes for clients.

• Twice selected as a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers in the areas of banking and creditor-debtor rights.

• Was named a New Leader in the Law by the Connecticut Law Tribune.

• Serves as co-chair of Halloran Sage’s pro bono committee, overseeing myriad cases focused on veterans’ housing issues.
