4.5 stars 11 totalReview A Spinella
Posted by John
Attorney Spinella represented me recently in the local Probate Court and I found him to be extremely professional and thorough. He has surgical precision when it comes to focusing on the specific matters and their desired outcomes. He has a pleasant demeanor and was respectful to me, his client, and the other parties. I would highly recommend him as he is dedicated to his trade and works towards fair and equitable results.

I hired Attorney Spinella to represent me in a criminal case involving very serious charges which were completely untrue.
I am a middle-aged man with a successful career who had never been charged with anything before. Needless to say the entire criminal process was a strange and distressing thing. Not only did Attorney Spinella guide me through this process with a reassuring and confidant hand, he was successful in having the entire case dismissed.
He is an impressive, highly competent professional who knows what he is doing. I recommend him without reservation to anyone who finds himself caught up in the criminal process with a serious case and needs someone to rely on.

I am a young, hard-working woman, neither rich nor famous. So when Attorney Spinella agreed to take my personal injury case I was very pleased. I was even more pleased when he was able to resolve my case for an amount of money I never contemplated.
At all times he acted toward me with courtesy, care, and attention; with respect to my case he was skillful and experienced and knew exactly what needed to be done. I had always thought that hiring a lawyer would be long, drawn out, and confusing... and after my accident, I was hesitant to do so. I am so glad that I decided to contact Attorney Spinella. He couldn't have made the process any easier, pleasant, or rewarding for me. It was a true pleasure to have his services.
I am grateful for his presentation and will look to him in the future whenever I am in need of an experienced lawyer who can get the job done.

I am a Connecticut lawyer and own a summer home in Old Lyme. Several years ago the town, acting by its Zoning Commission, adopted an ordinance denying seasonal users of property from using their homes between November and April. I hired Paul Spinella and recruited hundreds of other 'summer people' to join in the litigation to overturn this unconstitutional act of the town. Attorney Spinella brought a civil rights lawsuit in the Connecticut Federal Court, claiming that our Fourteenth Amendment and other constitutional rights were violated. Following a lengthy legal battle, he was successful in having the ordinance declared illegal and the town revoked it thereby restoring our full property rights, More than 2,000 landowners benefited from the court action.This case serves as a deterrent to other shoreline communities which might consider limiting use of property to seasonal only!
Attorney Spinella is a talented and dedicated advocate and he was a joy to work with. I recommend him without reservation to anyone who has suffered a violation of personal or property rights from the improper actions of a government agency or other powerful institution.

I am a Connecticut businessman who, along with my family and business, have sought out Attorney Spinella’s advice and representation in a wide variety of matters.
He is, in particular, a highly skilled trial lawyer capable of taking on any contested matter ranging from criminal defense to personal injury claims, to matters involving violations of personal rights. He is brilliant and sees things in a case others do not see.
The important thing is that he gets results, and is completely loyal, dedicated, and hard working.
I have referred friends, family, and businessmen to him. I recommend him without reservation to any individuals or business involved in or considering litigation.

Attorney Spinella represented me in two police misconduct / civil rights cases in the Connecticut Federal District Court. We were successful in both cases.
The second case went to trial earlier this year where we were successful obtaining a jury verdict in our favor for excessive force against the City of New London. He believed in my case and his belief was demonstrated, not only in the courtroom, but also during the endless hours of preparation that resulted in justice. Watching him in the courtroom was a sight to behold. He was magnificent and so prepared for everything they tried to throw at him.
I have no hesitation in saying that he is a brilliant civil rights attorney. He is passionate about his cases and cares about his clients. I would strongly urge anyone who has had his or her rights violated to contact him without delay.

As an attorney with nearly 30 years of experience I believe I am in a credible position to comment on Attorney A. Paul Spinella’s legal experience and character having worked with him and observed his abilities in a number of cases.
I can say with absolute confidence that he is a brilliant lawyer with a high reputation, most notably in the areas of civil rights / criminal defense / and personal injury.
I recommend him to anyone in need of a hard-working attorney with real passion about the cases he becomes involved in.

For someone in need of a personal injury attorney, my recommendation is Spinella & Associates. Without getting into detail, my case involved complex issues requiring expert testimony and knowledge in various areas of the law, such as disability. I can say with confidence that he is not afraid to take on a big corporation with a big law firm.
Most importantly for me, he has bulldog persistence and dedication to the cause - don’t expect any hand-holding or bedside manner. If you are interested in results he’s your man. I would recommend him highly to anyone in need of a good personal injury lawyer, or a damage claim of any kind.

I am an attorney and have known and worked with Paul Spinella for over 30 years.I do not handle litigation or criminal matters in my own practice. I have referred many clients to Paul and will continue to do so.I have never received a single complaint out of these referrals, but have only received words of thanks and gratitude due to the quality of Paul's services and the caring he shows for each individual client. Most importantly for me is that I have such confidence in Paul that I asked him to represent a family member in a most unfortunate situation. He acted quickly and with sensitivity and due to Paul's knowledge and experience, the result was better than we had hoped. Without hesitation I would strongly recommend Paul to anyone in need of a litigation or criminal attorney.

I have know Paul for many years. When we met I was in a civil rights case that 8 other attorneys would not take. He stood up for me and fought for my rights. it was a long and drawn out process and i Eventually I lost, not because of this efforts but because of a very corrupt system of government, So why would someone that loses the case endorse an attorney? it is because it is the right thing to do. I have used him for other matters over time and he has always been helpful.
