Pamala J. Favreau is the sole practitioner at the firm Attorney Pamala J. Favreau, in Glastonbury and Somers, Connecticut. She focuses her practice on criminal defense, personal injury and administrative law. In the classroom, she stood out as an exception.

The American Association of Clinical Pathologists certified her as a medical laboratory technician in 1982, and the Connecticut State Department of Health, Education and Welfare certified her as a medical laboratory technologist in the 1990s. At Manchester Memorial Hospital and Windham Community Memorial Hospital, where she worked from 1982 to 1986, she began her professional life as a Medical Laboratory Technologist (HEW).

After taking some time off to raise her family, Ms. Favreau went back to school full time at Eastern Connecticut State University while continuing to work full time in the hospital laboratory. She attended Eastern Connecticut State University in Willimantic, Connecticut, and graduated with honor in 1986 with a Bachelor of Science before continuing on to law school. After deciding to pursue a career in law, she attended Western New England College School of Law in Springfield, Massachusetts, graduating with a Juris Doctor degree with cum laude honors in 1989.

During her time in school, Ms. Favreau interned at a top-tier Vernon, Connecticut, law firm where she obtained experience in criminal defense. This encounter shaped her outlook on the legal profession, leading her to believe that being an attorney is more than just a job. Her practice emphasizes injury law, particularly auto accidents, civil rights litigation and criminal defense.

Ms. Favreau is dedicated to keeping up with the latest developments in the fields of forensic science and criminal law, and she does so by attending seminars all around the country on a regular basis. She has spent her whole career learning and pushing for justice, and she has never wavered in her conviction that doing so is a never-ending process, no matter how long she has been practicing law.
