Davis O'Sullivan & Priest LLC

129 Church Street
Suite 503
New Haven, CT 06510



Our offices are located on the fifth floor of 129 Church Street, New Haven, at Suite 503.  The building is nearly 100 years old, located 2 buildings down from City Hall, next door to the federal court building, and right opposite the New Haven Green.  Its ground floor includes a restaurant or coffee shop, as well as NBC News.  The entrance has not one, but three green awnings.  In summer, come on a Wednesday afternoon, and you can go to the Farmer's Market right in front of City Hall.  All this being said, parking is not easy.  Anyone with difficulty walking should be dropped off in the lobby while the driver finds a place to park.  If you call us, we can come downstairs to help.  And all of make house-calls when the need arises or the client is frail. 

Here is the location on GOOGLE MAPS or, if you prefer, MAPQUEST.
Here is the City of New Haven MAP showing City and other parking garages as "P" -- Express Parking isn't shown.

PARKING OPTIONS:

1.  End of the day appointments - If your appointment is after banking hours (which may mean, after 4 pm, depending upon the bank) -- find a parking lot for a BANK, because you can park free. The closest bank lot would be Webster Bank (enter lot on Elm Street), Wachovia Bank after 5 p.m. (also on Elm Street), or Citizens or Bank of Southern New England (further down Church Street, past Elm).

2.  Parking on the street.  There are 2-hour slots NORTH of Chapel Street (between George and Crown) on Church Street.  The spots on the Green are only one hour and usually not ideal.

3.  Parking garages, particularly, Express Parking on Orange Street between Chapel and Center, and CT Financial Center.
