Attorney Profile

A partner at Silver Golub & Teitell LLP, Angelo A. Ziotas focuses his practice primarily on personal injury and wrongful death litigation. Since 1998, he has been certified in civil trial law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, and he is admitted to practice in Connecticut and Rhode Island, as well as before the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit and the Supreme Court of the United States. Mr. Ziotas represents clients throughout Connecticut from the firm’s main office in Stamford.

Mr. Ziotas’s personal injury clients are people who have suffered harm as a result of the negligence of other parties. Many of his cases have arisen out of incidents involving medical malpractice, and he has been able to secure millions of dollars in compensation for these clients through both jury awards and settlements that he has negotiated outside of court with defendants and their insurance companies. In one such matter involving a birth injury, Mr. Ziotas secured a verdict of $38.5 million to compensate a child who incurred severe neurological damage during the delivery process.

Outside of the medical malpractice area, Mr. Ziotas has handled personal injury cases involving premises liability and truck and motor vehicle crashes, and he has met with similar success, including a $10.4 million settlement for a child who suffered a severe brain injury after nearly drowning at a summer camp that was supervised by municipal employees. He has also worked on business litigation and insurance bad faith matters, and his superb track record in all of these endeavors has earned him numerous honors, including an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell. He is a cum laude graduate of the University of Connecticut School of Law.

*AV®, AV Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished and Martindale-Hubbell Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell® is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the anonymous opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary.
