Why does anyone become an attorney? It’s different for every one, but in my case, it’s because I love the law. I have humorously referred to myself as a “legal nerd,” because when I’m following a case I’m not personally involved in, I love reading all the pleadings and motions, even when they run more than 100 pages.
Why is that important to you? Because successfully representing someone and litigating on their behalf requires a passionate commitment to the law. It may ultimately end in a more or less dramatic confrontation in a courtroom, but that’s not where the bulk of the work is done. Having the kind of mind that loves pages of written detail is a bonus in preparing for a deposition, a negotiation, or a trial.
That, plus my track record for success in employment law cases is the reason you’ll want to talk to me. I have laser-focused experience in helping my clients prove job discrimination, sexual harassment, and disability, among many other work-related issues. I’m a seasoned attorney and am dedicated to effectively serving my clients.
Born and raised in Rhode Island, I attended Roger Williams University for both my undergrad degree and my J.D. (juris doctor). I did all the things a young student needs to do to show a commitment to becoming a lawyer: great grades, National Honor Society, and reaching the Nationals with my Mock Trial Team.
Today, I keep my skills sharp with my membership in the Connecticut Employment Lawyers Association, the Connecticut Bar Association, and the Greater Bridgeport Bar Association. I am licensed to practice law in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and frequently find myself traveling to represent a diverse group of clients.
I’m married with a baby on the way, make my home in Connecticut, and when I’m not reading long legal briefs for pleasure, I enjoy sports and gardening.
Here’s what my clients have to say about me:
“Dan was amazingly responsive, answering my calls at night if he couldn’t reach me during the day. He kept me up to date on all the details of my case, and –we won!” --Jody M., sexual harassment case
“Dan is a great lawyer. He listened and answered all my questions. It was the best experience we could have had. I thanked him every day for taking great care of our case.” –Nada C.
“Having been terminated from my place of employment after 14 years of service, I was concerned as to whether I was treated fairly. From the time we first met, Dan made me feel that he was genuinely interested in my situation, and if necessary, he would aggressively fight for my rights. During our meetings, he made a very thorough inquiry into my employment history, and advised me as to what he felt my options would be. As a result of his involvement, my concerns were resolved. I found Dan to be accessible, quick to return phone calls, very patient with answering all my questions, and a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend Dan Angelone to anyone who felt they had a labor-related issue.” –Sally F.
