Associate attorney Toney Pignatiello selected to partner in New Britain civil litigation and criminal defense firm

The Upton Law Firm is proud to announce the elevation of Associate Attorney Toney Pignatiello to Partner in the firm. Firm founder Peter Upton chose to confer partner status on Mr. Pignatiello in recognition of his contributions to the firm as a skilled litigator in many of the firm's leading practice areas, including personal injury, medical malpractice and criminal defense.

Mr. Pignatiello's skills as a litigator come from both training and experience. He is a graduate of the Trojan Horse Method trial skills program and also attended the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyer College. While attending law school at the Massachusetts School of Law at Andover with a focus on criminal law and civil litigation, Mr. Pignatiello completed legal internships with the Connecticut State's Attorney's Office and the Office of the Attorney General. These hands-on experiences prepared Mr. Pignatiello to fight for his clients daily in the courtrooms of New Haven and Hartford County.

Reflecting on his new position at the firm, Mr. Pignatiello remarked, "I am of course extremely pleased to be made a partner at The Upton Law Firm. Peter Upton has been an inspiration, and all the attorneys and staff at the firm are an amazing team to work with. We pursue justice for our clients every day, and I can't imagine any job more richly rewarding." In addition to pursuing civil litigation against negligent parties in personal injury matters, Mr. Pignatiello also helps his clients obtain the full range of compensation available to them, including workers' compensation and social security disability benefits, where applicable. Mr. Pignatiello represents clients who have been harmed in other ways as well, including employment discrimination or landlord/tenant matters.

A United States Army Veteran and VA-Accredited attorney, Mr. Pignatiello devotes a portion of his practice to helping veterans with disability claims, service-connected medical malpractice, post-traumatic stress disorder and other important veterans issues. Mr. Pignatiello is also a Native American attorney proud to represent his fellow Native Americans with Indian Law matters.
