Personal injury law firm Trantolo & Trantolo is a staple of the Hartford community – not just in offering legal advice and fighting on behalf of clients but also in educational initiatives and participation. Announced this week, Trantolo & Trantolo is celebrating 75 years in business.

Joseph Trantolo, Sr., founded the law firm in 1938 with the belief that legal assistance must be available to all. By 1958, Trantolo, with attorneys Waldemar Lach and Edward Krawiecki, partnered to form a general practice law firm, locating the office to 750 Main St. in Hartford. Aside from their involvement in various legal, political, and civic organizations, all three devoted the practice to clients’ success. An outlook that continues up to the present, fighting for clients in court, rather than simply providing legal advice, was Trantolo & Trantolo’s mission.

This legal perspective, as well as a foundation of dedication, honor, and commitment, passed down from the first generation to the second, which included Joe Trantolo, Jr., and Vincent Trantolo. The two founded The Connecticut Law Clinics of Trantolo & Trantolo in 1976, and by 1999, Vincent started the Hartford County Bar Foundation, a charitable organization.

Additionally, Vincent Trantolo pushed the boundaries for marketing law firms, offering an innovative approach and showing Trantolo & Trantolo will do whatever it takes for clients. By 2004, Keith and Scott Trantolo joined the law firm as the third generation.

With a strategy of compassion and knowledge, Trantolo & Trantolo’s lawyers have fought on behalf of those in need and do not represent insurance companies and other large corporations equipped with nearly-limitless resources. As the result of this approach, the law firm is both community-focused and equipped with the strength and skills to take and handle large companies in court, and is supported by a lengthy record of successes.
