Monthly Member Spotlight: Matt McGowan

Matt McGowan

In an effort to personalize our organization, we are introducing a monthly feature so people can get to know some of our members. This month, we would like to introduce an active member of the Connecticut Young Professionals, Matt McGowan.

Matt is an associate attorney at the Law Offices of Esposito & Annunziata. He comes to us from Georgia, where he completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Georgia and received his law degree from John Marshall Law School. He is the third generation of his family to practice law in New Haven and now calls this area home.

Matt focuses his practice on personal injury law, but he represents clients in a wide variety of civil litigation matters. He has won verdicts in court and has also won substantial awards for his clients through settlement negotiation. Matt is honored to continue the legacy of his family through the practice of law. He makes himself available to his clients twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. Like the family members before him, he has a passion for fighting for those who have been harmed by others.


Thank you, New Haven – city dedicates tree to CTYP

The city of New Haven dedicated a tree in front of City Hall to Connecticut Young Professionals or ‘CTYP’ on June 4th, 2015.  The inscription on the plaque reads ‘Connecticut Young Professionals’ and lists the values of ‘Tradition’, ‘Innovation’, and ‘Idealism’.  Connecticut Young Professionals has provided the volunteers for several city events, including the city’s ‘Salute to Veterans’ and’Valentine’s Arts Soiree’.



Connecticut Young Professionals is incredibly excited and touched by this great honor.  We look forward to continuing to build our relationship with the City of New Haven.  We hope to make it and many other cities across the state a great place for young professionals.


Thank you, New Haven.
