Paul represents clients in a wide variety of highly complex medical negligence and other serious injury cases. His practice is diverse, but focuses on cases involving the most severe injuries, including death and debilitating permanent disabilities. A few examples of his recent cases include representing:
Paul has a special interest and experience working with children and adults who have suffered brain injuries as a result of trauma, traumatic childbirth or other medical negligence. He has volunteered hundreds of hours to support needy brain injury survivors in Connecticut. For five years he served as President of the Board of Directors of the Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut, Inc. (BIAC, formerly the Brain Injury Association of Connecticut, Inc.), a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of Connecticut brain injury survivors.
He has been quoted frequently in articles about litigation involving the NFL, NCAA and brain injuries, has spoken many times on the subject of brain injury litigation and attends national conferences focused on cutting-edge issues related to representing survivors of brain injury. His article, “Tackling Head Trauma: the Concussion Problem in Sports”, was published in the Sports Litigation Alert, a national publication for legal professionals practicing sports law.
Paul also has extensive experience representing victims of Connecticut’s most notorious crimes, where victims have suffered serious, preventable injuries. He obtained a $28.5 million jury verdict in December 2013 against J. Michael Farren, a former Presidential advisor of Pres. George W. Bush, for the brutal assault of his wife in New Canaan, CT.* In 2012, he recovered $3.9 million for a victim of a serious assault that should have been prevented at an apartment complex. He also has successfully pursued civil claims related to sexual misconduct by priests, therapists and Boy Scout leaders on behalf of victims of child sexual abuse. In connection with his representation of Connecticut victims of crimes in civil cases, he is an active member of the National Crime Victim Bar Association, which is affiliated with the National Center for Victims of Crime.

Paul also has a special interest in representing persons in whistleblower actions, where those individuals have information indicating a company or person has defrauded the government. He also has litigated significant claims for business losses and will represent business and individuals in meritorious cases on a contingent fee basis, where hourly legal fees are a barrier for those who have wrongly sustained significant losses. Before joining Silver Golub & Teitell, he was a litigation and trial lawyer in Chicago, where his practice focused primarily on complex commercial litigation, including business torts, contract disputes and securities litigation.
Although his law practice is focused in Connecticut, Paul has successfully represented his clients in trials, hearings, arbitrations and mediations around the country. He is admitted to practice law in the state courts of Connecticut, New York and Illinois and has handled or assisted in cases pending in the state or federal courts of Connecticut, New York, Illinois, Delaware, Georgia, Montana and South Dakota. He has also worked on a number of appeals and successfully argued before the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago.
