Peter Goselin wasn’t always a lawyer. From 1985 to 1993, he was a hospital worker for the Department of Mental Health. During that period, he served as a union shop steward. “Basically, I spent a number of years on the night shift in the hospital and spending my daylight hours fighting with personnel over grievances or contract negotiations,” he said. Those efforts foreshadowed the next act of Goselin’s professional life. These days, he’s a labor lawyer at the Hartford, Conn., firm of eight-attorney Livingston, Adler, Pulda, Meiklejohn & Kelly. This month, he was honored by Connecticut Legal Services for some of his pro bono work. Last spring, along with CLS and the Rev. Juan David Paniagua, he helped set up a legal clinic in Stamford, Conn., for immigrant laborers who have pay disputes with contractors. Goselin spoke about those efforts with The Connecticut Law Tribune senior writer Thomas Scheffey.
