Born in Middletown, Connecticut, attorney Paul A Morello Jr. has been a lifelong resident of the area. Paul attended Xavier High School, and after graduating cum laude from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1976, he received his law degree from Albany Law School of Union University in Albany, New York. In 1979, he returned to Connecticut and was admitted to the Connecticut bar and Federal District Court for the District of Connecticut.
A Unique Perspective on Connecticut Personal Injury
For many years, Attorney Morello worked as a civil defense lawyer for a number of insurance companies. As a result of this experience, he knows how insurance companies work and that allows him to better represent the victims of accidents in claims against insurers.
In addition, Paul is a well-respected arbitrator who is often called upon by other Connecticut attorneys to act as an arbitrator in deciding their cases.
Attorney Morello is a member of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association and the Connecticut Bar Association. He has served as an arbitrator and small claims magistrate for the Connecticut Superior Court. Additionally, he has served as a special master for the Connecticut Superior Court and the Federal District Court for the District of Connecticut. Attorney Morello was a member of the Grievance Committee for the Judicial District of Hartford, which handles disciplinary matters for attorneys in that judicial district.
Attorney Morello is the co-author of “The Handbook of Connecticut Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Law,” previously published by The Connecticut Law Tribune, as well as “The Misapplication of Worker’s Compensation Exclusivity to Uninsured Motorist Claims,” and “Uninsured Underinsured Motorist Law in Connecticut.” He is also the author of “The Problem of Multiple Uninsured Motorist Coverages: Who Pays?”
As if that weren’t enough, Paul has also been a speaker at numerous continuing legal education seminars. Why? Because he believes that, in addition to accident victims knowing their rights and options, it’s also important to teach the next generation of personal injury attorneys how to properly take care of their future clients.
