Offering Over 80+ Years of Combined Experience

At Cicchiello & Cicchiello, LLP, our attorneys bring more than 80+ years of combined experience to the table. We take pride in what we do, and this is evidenced by our professional accomplishments, some of which include being listed among the Top 40 Under 40 by The National Trial Lawyers, and selection to Connecticut's Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ list. When you need quality legal representation, you can turn to our trusted firm for the support you deserve.

How Can We Be of Service to You?

Our Hartford attorneys provide dedicated, competent, and aggressive legal representation in each of the following practice areas:

  • Personal Injury - Have you or someone you love been injured at the hands of a reckless or negligent individual or entity? Whether you were injured in an auto accident, a construction accident, or were the victim of medical malpractice, or were wrongfully injured by any other cause, we represent injured victims and their family members in personal injury and wrongful death claims.
  • Employment Law - Have you been harassed at work, or mistreated because of your age, gender, or religious affiliation? If you have been sexually harassed, wrongfully terminated, or mistreated for another reason, we provide litigation services in an array of legal issues in the field of employment law.
  • Workers' Compensation - Have you sustained a work-related injury or have you fallen ill due to an occupational disease? The workers' compensation system allows injured workers to obtain valuable benefits when they have been injured in a workplace accident or suffered from an occupational disease. Not only do we protect the rights of injured workers, but we can also explore additional avenues for compensation in third-party claims.
  • Social Security Disability - If you are suffering from a medical condition that prohibits you from engaging in any gainful employment, and if your condition is expected to last at least one year, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. Since the SSD application process is notoriously complex, you could benefit dramatically by working with a Social Security Disability attorney from our firm.
