WATERBURY, Conn., Nov. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- For the fourth consecutive year, Webster Bank has been voted the Best Bank for legal services in the annual Connecticut Law Tribune readers poll.

In the annual poll, the Connecticut Law Tribune asks readers to vote for the best providers of goods and services for the legal profession. Webster provides a wide range of banking products designed for the legal industry, including cash management solutions, business remote deposit, IOLTA (Interest on Lawyers' Trust Accounts), and flexible, low-cost lending options.

Connecticut Law Tribune is the only weekly newspaper devoted to covering the state's legal community, courts, law firms and legislature. "Webster works with law firms through our Small Business and Commercial Banking team as well as a specialty banking team with ten years average experience focused exclusively on the legal services industry," said Timothy D. Bergstrom, director of relationship sales for business & professional banking. "Winning the Connecticut Law Tribune poll for the fourth straight year is a testament to Webster's broad expertise and knowledge gained from successfully working with hundreds of law firms and clients across the state."

Webster is an active participant in prominent legal organizations across the state, including the Connecticut Bar Association and Connecticut Legal Services. Webster holds IOLTA Leadership Status with the Connecticut Bar Foundation and was named a 2010 honoree by Connecticut Legal Services for its ongoing support for the provision of legal services to the state's neediest families.

"Webster Bank provides great services for Connecticut Legal Services, and has also been a steadfast supporter of our mission to help poor people in crisis. In the tough fiscal times legal aid is facing, it has been great to have Webster standing so strongly behind us," said Steve Eppler-Epstein, Executive Director of Connecticut Legal Services.

Webster was also honored in 2010 by the Connecticut Appleseed Center for Law and Justice, Inc. with the Good Apple Award for its philanthropy in the community and support of Connecticut Appleseed initiatives that serve the state's at-risk population.
