Angelo A. Ziotas

Partner

Angelo A. Ziotas is one of the firm’s senior partners and lead trial attorneys. He has specialized in the trial of civil matters in Connecticut for nearly 30 years and has represented plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases, serious personal injury claims and business disputes.

In trials throughout Connecticut, he has had more than 40 successful verdicts and his clients have received jury verdicts exceeding $1 million in medical malpractice actions, motor vehicle collisions, elevator accidents and an insurance “bad faith” suit. These verdicts include one of the largest in Connecticut history, when a Stamford jury awarded $38.5 million to compensate a young boy who suffered severe neurological injuries during childbirth. In his most recent trial, he represented the family of a young mother, killed by a negligent tractor-trailer driver. The defendants settled after three weeks of trial, while the jury was deliberating, and paid a total of $19.75 million, representing one of Connecticut’s largest wrongful death settlements.

Since October 2018, he has negotiated settlements of more than $75 million for his clients. These settlements include more than $41 million for two clients who were victims of egregious medical malpractice.

Because of his history of success, he has become a “go to” lawyer for the people who know who to hire. He has represented many other lawyers, including the families of some of Connecticut’s leading defense attorneys, when they have needed help.

Mr. Ziotas is a member of the American College of Trial Lawyers, the American Board of Trial Advocates and the International Academy of Trial Lawyers. He was board certified as civil trial attorney by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in 1998 and has been recognized by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America* in the specialties of Medical Malpractice Law and Personal Injury Litigation since 2006.  He has also been included in Connecticut Super Lawyers* every year since its inception in 2006, including its list of “Top 50” Connecticut Super Lawyers and “Top 100” New England Super Lawyers.

He is a past President of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association and is on the Board of Governors of the American Association for Justice.

He has lectured on trial practice, medical malpractice, traumatic brain injuries and other personal injury topics at seminars over the last 25 years.
