For Workers Since 1985


Who We Work For

Through shipbuilding, war and brisk maritime trade, New London County has a rich history built by the efforts of the working class.

For over 30 years, we have fought for personal injury, workplace compensation, veterans or social security disability benefits.

We have worked alongside local employers, unions and its workforce to fight for the fair rulings, rights and protections of those impacted.

We’ve always been the Peoples’ Firm

At Embry, Neusner, Arscott & Shafner LLC, our team members are also fathers, daughters, sons, mothers, siblings and friends. We understand who our clients are and how these situations impact them and their family members.

This understanding makes the connection with our clients easy and genuine. We all have loved ones who work in the trades, have experienced hardship and have needed family support to help them find strength and overcome the adversity.

Established in 1705, Groton became a community of ship builders along with trade and commerce using the region’s access to the waterways.

Following the American Revolution between 1784 and 1807, Groton built 60 vessels including the Victory, Success and 5 sloops.

The rich history of ship builders, tradesman and their families has made Groton the Jewel of the Eastern Shore.

Throughout the 19th century, Groton overcame the Embargo Act, war, and the creation of varying ships like the clipper to support the demand for the California Gold Rush, ironclad for the U.S. Navy.

In 1872, the Naval Submarine Base was founded and, in 1915, submarines began to be based there.

In 1931, Electric Boat built its first submarine, the U.S.S. Cuttlefish. Electric Boat completed a submarine every two weeks during WWII.

Electric Boat launched the first nuclear powered submarine, the U.S.S. Nautilus, in 1954.

With all of this industrialization came many unknowns in health risks, injuries and the impacts on workplaces, workers and their families.

For more than 32 years, Embry, Neusner, Arscott & Shafner has fought and protected workers and their families. They have worked closely with unions, employers and legislators to embrace new laws and protections that have reshaped these risks and given families the rights they deserve.

The ENA&S team understands the value of family and the difficulties associated with these risks. Our genuine approach and long experience with these cases is why so many feel comfortable working with us.
