Magdalena Narozniak

Associate
Attorney Magdalena Narozniak graduated from Fordham University in Manhattan with Bachelor of Arts degrees in Political Science and International/Intercultural Studies. Her interest in world affairs led her to Universitt Bremen in Germany where she earned a Master of Arts degree in International Relations with a concentration in global governance and social theory. During her graduate studies, Attorney Narozniak assisted an international human rights lawyer and former judge of the European Court of Human Rights in his research on criminal justice reform. This experience motivated her to make the transition from the theoretical study of law to the actual practice of law.

Back in Connecticut, Attorney Narozniak received her Juris Doctor from the UConn School of Law while she worked full-time for UConn's Office of Early College Programs. In her last year of law school, she participated in UConn's Human Rights and Asylum Clinic where she advised clients seeking refugee status, withholding from removal, and assisted with their post-asylum needs. She joined the Connecticut Bar in 2019, followed by admission to the District of Connecticut in 2020.

Attorney Narozniak handles all aspects of criminal cases including from the investigative stage, through arrest and bail process, pre-trial motions, then ultimately trial preparation to verdict and, if unsuccessful, the appeals process. She is experienced with charges of DUI and vehicle-related crimes, narcotics possession, RICO Conspiracy, domestic violence, breach of peace, disorderly conduct, risk of injury, felony gun possession, child enticement, assault on a public safety officer, burglary, and sexual assault.

Attorney Narozniak emigrated from Poland as a child and speaks fluent Polish. As an immigrant, she has personally witnessed how economic and social injustice can distort an individual's capacity to thrive. She believes it is her duty to remind prosecutors and judges to seek justice, not merely to convict, and to recognize a defendant's humanity.

Associate
Attorney Magdalena Narozniak graduated from Fordham University in Manhattan with Bachelor of Arts degrees in Political Science and International/Intercultural Studies.

During her graduate studies, Attorney Narozniak assisted an international human rights lawyer and former judge of the European Court of Human Rights in his research on criminal justice reform.

Back in Connecticut, Attorney Narozniak received her Juris Doctor from the UConn School of Law while she worked full-time for UConn's Office of Early College Programs. In her last year of law school, she participated in UConn's Human Rights and Asylum Clinic where she advised clients seeking refugee status, withholding from removal, and assisted with their post-asylum needs. She joined the Connecticut Bar in 2019, followed by admission to the District of Connecticut in 2020.

She is experienced with charges of DUI and vehicle-related crimes, narcotics possession, RICO Conspiracy, domestic violence, breach of peace, disorderly conduct, risk of injury, felony gun possession, child enticement, assault on a public safety officer, burglary, and sexual assault.

Attorney Narozniak emigrated from Poland as a child and speaks fluent Polish.
