Born and raised in Waterbury, Connecticut, Paul was a full-time Adult Probation Officer with the State of Connecticut before attending law school and graduating with honors. His blue-collar upbringing instilled a sense of fairness and hard work that he uses to the great benefit of his clients.
He was also a longtime member of the Waterbury Boys’ Club and has been a strong supporter of youth athletics in Waterbury, Southington, and Wolcott ever since. He is devoted to his alma mater, Sacred Heart High School, where in 2005 he was honored with the school’s Distinguished Alumni Award. He now serves on the school’s Advancement Committee.
Paul is admitted to practice before all courts in the State of Connecticut and the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut.
A Few of His Achievements
Paul’s most rewarding cases have involved his representation of working families in claims against powerful Connecticut corporations and insurance companies, such as his claim for dairy farmers whose cattle were harmed by stray voltage from Northeast Utility power lines, and his battles for a Waterbury infant injured at birth, and a New Haven nursing student rendered quadriplegic in a motor vehicle collision.
