"Joyce Lagnese, Calum Anderson and Frank Santoro have provided Connecticut attorneys with a remarkably complete and up-to-date analysis of our State’s medical malpractice law. This thoroughly researched, well-balanced and comprehensive treatise needs to be in every lawyer’s library if their practice area includes the complex and ever-changing law of medical malpractice." —James D.Bartolini, Esq.
Newly revised and reorganized, Connecticut Medical Malpractice: A Manual of Practice and Procedure is the "go-to" legal reference handbook for all Connecticut medical malpractice litigators, both the defense and plaintiff's bar. Three well-known Hartford area attorneys (from the firm of Danaher, Lagnese & Sacco, P.C.) have thoroughly covered this overdue subject.
Reviewed by one of the leading plaintiff's attorneys in the state, James D. Bartolini, has said "This is Black Letter Law written with an eye toward helping the novice as well as seasoned malpractice attorney."
