About Paul

Learn Paul’s areas of practice.

Paul was born and raised in Waterbury, CT. Paul was a full-time Adult Probation Officer with the State of Connecticut before attending law school and graduating with honors. Paul's blue-collar upbringing instilled a sense of fairness and hard work in him that he uses to the great benefit of his clients. Paul's most rewarding cases have involved his representation of working families in claims against powerful Connecticut corporations and insurance companies.   Paul's hard work resulted in being designated for inclusion in the 2009-15 editions of Super Lawyers Magazine.

Paul recently was named to the Board of Trustees of The University of Saint Joseph in Hartford, CT.  


Paul has used his background and strong work ethic to achieve successful verdicts and settlements for a Waterbury infant injured at birth, a New Haven nursing student rendered quadriplegic in a motor vehicle collision and New London County dairy farmers whose cattle were injured by stray voltage.


Paul received his undergraduate degree from the University of Connecticut in 1985. He was then employed by the State of Connecticut, Judicial Department, as a Child Support Enforcement Officer and an Adult Probation Officer. He received his law degree, with honors, from Western New England School of Law in 1994. Paul was a member of the Western New England Law Review in 1993-1994.

Automobile accident
Paul guided me through the legal process after being injured in a car accident. Paul and his team were kind, caring, and treated me like family. The process took almost 3 years and i could not have picked a better team to help me. Thank you Paul!!

Spine Surgery Consultation
I was referred to Atty. Paul Iannaccone by my brother. Paul listened to my story of the past 6 years and my on going back issues which resulted from a November 14, 2013 on the job injury. He was very informative with the available legal direction of my Sept. 1st, 2020 surgery increased problems with nerve damage. Although I was informed that the statute of limitations may have expired, Paul still was a great source of information, and was very polite and professional with our conversation on the phone. I thank him profusely. John

Treats you like family!
Paul is top notch. He keeps your expectations real and speaks to you as an equal. I highly recommend Paul if you are looking for someone who will treat you like he would treat his own family member.

Medical Malpractice
I was referred to Paul through a friend, the first time I met with him he listened to what I had to say without interrupting me. When I finished he asked questions trying to be as gentle as he could. Paul explained the whole process in the first visit being very honest in what I could expect from him and the law. I decided to hire him and was extremely glad that I did. After he received all the pertinent documents I met with him again and we decided to go forth with the lawsuit. Paul laid out a time line of the lawsuit saying that normally these types of cases take from three to four years to complete. He kept me updated throughout the entire process. To my relief the case was settled in under two years. Paul and his team have my gratitude for making the process my family and I went through bearable. I would recommend Paul to anyone who needs someone to speak for them.

Great litigator!
Attorney Iannaccone handled a difficult personal injury matter for me. Throughout the process he was honest, realistic and always available to answer questions or address concerns. Although we did not take my case to trial, I have witnessed him in the courtroom and he is an experienced litigator who has an excellent reputation amongst opposing attorneys and judges. He is personable and down to earth. I would (and do) recommend anyone to him with no reservations whatsoever.
