Attorney Dan Aiello is a multi-jurisdictional trial attorney admitted to practice law in New York and Connecticut. He became interested in law while refereeing ice hockey games as a teenager. Any call he made for a violent infraction triggered an automatic hearing so from a young age, he defended his calls using the rules of USA Hockey in a quasi-court system.
He began his career as a defense lawyer representing insurance companies but could not reconcile the work with his values. After working for the largest defense insurance company in the tri-state area, Attorney Aiello knows that they all follow the same business model — to take in money on premium dollars and pay out as little as possible to injury victims. To do that, they hire defense attorneys and paid-opinion witnesses to escape accountability.
Yet clients can rest assured if the insurance company refuses to offer reasonable compensation for what was taken from them, Attorney Aiello will take the case to trial — that is why every case where a lawsuit is filed is prepared for trial. Not many firms have the resources and lawyers willing and skilled enough to go to trial against the insurance companies and their lawyers and paid-witnesses but at Trantolo & Trantolo, we will be prepared.
Results for Clients
Attorney Aiello uses his prior experience to represent his clients better and prides himself on winning the best possible settlements.

Attorney Aiello has worked for one of the largest personal injury law firms and represented clients in over 100 bench and jury trials. He has recovered over $25 million in gross settlements as a plaintiff lawyer in the last 7 years.
