Richard P. Hastings, a personal injury lawyer with Ridgefield-based law firm Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, achieved best-seller status on Amazon-- reaching #1 in the insurance category-- for A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing: What Your Insurance Company Doesn’t Want You To Know And Won’t Tell You Until It’s Too Late, written by Hastings and 14 other leading American attorneys. He is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, limited to trial attorneys who have won million- and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements; fewer than 1 percent of U.S. lawyers are members. He sits on the board of directors of Dream Come True of Western Connecticut, an organization dedicated to offering “children with life-threatening illnesses the chance to hope, dream, and live their fantasies.” Among their “dreams” is a new computer, a pet, and a visit to Disney World.
