Joel handles life-altering personal injury and medical malpractice cases, commercial truck crashes, aviation disasters, birth trauma, and product liability claims.

Other record-breaking cases include:  $23,350,000 awarded for a young man injured in a work-related accident—making it the largest construction-related, pre-trial personal injury settlement in Connecticut history—and a $25 million jury verdict—the largest known verdict in Connecticut history for a lawsuit against the state—for a man who was catastrophically injured when struck by a speeding state trooper. Joel has lectured before the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, the Connecticut Bar Association and local bar groups on trial law and lien issues, and is the contributing author of Truck Accident Litigation, Second Edition, published by the American Bar Association.  Joel has also been elected a James Cooper Fellow of the Connecticut Bar Foundation.
