Partner

Angelo A. Ziotas, a partner at Silver Golub & Teitell LLP, in Stamford, CT, has been specializing in the trial of civil matters in Connecticut for more than 25 years, including medical malpractice cases, personal injury claims involving wrongful death or serious injury and business disputes.

In trials throughout Connecticut, he has attained 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 2019, he tried a wrongful death case in Stamford Superior Court which settled after three weeks of trial, while the jury was deliberating, for a total of $19.75 million, representing one of Connecticut’s largest wrongful death settlements.

In addition to these trials, he has negotiated settlements of more than $40 million for firm clients in the last year. These settlements also included $16.6 million and $7.75 million for victims of egregious medical malpractice.

Mr. Ziotas 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 was named the Best Lawyers 2015 Product Liability Litigation – Plaintiffs “Lawyer of the Year.”  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.*
