About Ken Krayeske
"Ken Krayeske is what I call
a jolting young lawyer."

– Ralph Nader, June 18, 2013
In a Speech to The Connecticut Bar Association

Ken Krayeske lives and practices law in Hartford, Connecticut. Ken is licensed to practice law before the state and federal district courts in Connecticut and United States Appeals Court for the Second Circuit.

In 2019, the Connecticut Law Tribune awarded the Kenneth J. Krayeske Law Offices a "Game Changer" award for winning a $1.3 million settlement in the case of World, Wayne v. CMHC, et al.
In 2021, the Law Tribune awarded Krayeske a Giant Slayer plaque for his efforts in the Hepatitis C class action against the Connecticut Department of Correction. As of December 31, 2021, at least 860 people in CT DOC custody have been cured of this deadly liver disease because of the Barfield v. Quiros litigation in which Krayeske is lead counsel.

The Connecticut Law Tribune recently named Ken to its editorial board. Ken graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Law in 2010 and from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications in 1994. Prior to joining the bar, Ken was an award-winning journalist, writing for daily, weekly and monthly newspapers and magazines. He focused on youth journalism, starting Echoes from The Streets Youth Newspaper.

From December 2003 to December 2015, Ken wrote a column called The 40-Year Plan for the local weekly newspaper, the Hartford News. His reporting there led tothis,this and this.
Ken is fluent in Spanish.

He ran for United States Congress in Connecticut’s First Congressional District with the Connecticut Green Party in 2010, debating Congressman John Larson four times, and winning a little more than one percent of the vote. In July 2012, Connecticut’s only municipal public campaign finance system, the New Haven Democracy Fund, appointed Ken its administrator, a position he held for two years until shortly after he started this law firm.

Prior to starting his own law firm on July 1, 2013, Ken spent five years as a clerk and an associate at the law firm of Brown & Welsh, P.C. in Meriden, Connecticut. Ken and Wildaliz Bermudez married in 2012. They have a young child who deserves their privacy, although he would absolutely love to show you photos of the adorableness that is this little human being. Ken rides his bicycle to work every day: rain, snow, sleet, hail, and prized sunshine. In his spare time, Ken enjoys carpentry, snowboarding and the ocean.
