Arthur Webster, Lawyer and Assistant Attorney General at the Office of the Attorney General in the State of Connecticut, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in juvenile justice, medical law and child protection law.

With a passion to practice law starting at an early age, Mr. Webster first set on this path by earning a Bachelor of Arts, summa cum laude, at Bradley University in 1978. He started attending law school at the Georgetown University Law Center where he earned a JD in 1982, and was admitted to practice law in the state of Connecticut. That same year, he started as an associate with Halloran, Sage, Phelan & Hagarty, and was admitted to practice law in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut a year later in 1983. In 1986, Mr. Webster accepted a position as an assistant attorney general at the State of Connecticut’s Office of the Attorney General, where he served for 31 years. He prosecuted child-protection cases and counseled on complex medical-legal issues before his retirement in 2017, and credits Wally Malenik, the director of the Juvenile Justice Clinic at Georgetown University, as a major influence in his career. Currently, Mr. Webster serves as a member of the board of directors for True Colors Inc. and as president of the Cromwell Hillside Cemetery Association.

From 1987 to 2017, he was a lecturer on HIV/AIDS laws and policy, as well as complex medical treatment decisions. Mr. Webster was a member of the faculty at the Department of Children and Families Child Welfare Training Academy from 1989 to 2006, and served as a law lecturer at the University of Connecticut School of Law from 1991 until 1998, when he rose to the rank of adjunct professor, which he held until 2012.
