Joseph Failla joined the firm of VLMMR in 2000 and was made a partner in 2012.
Joe began his career at a New York City law firm that specialized in medical malpractice. After two years at that firm he joined VLMMR. His focus is on general liability and medical malpractice defense. He has vast experience trying a wide range of general liability cases and has built a distinguished career defending physicians and medical institutions in complex general liability matters.
Born in Newark, New Jersey and raised in Westchester County, Joe earned a Bachelors and Masters degree in criminal justice. After years in private business he decided on law school.
He finds the last 14 years at VLMMR to have been a richly rewarding experience. “I’ve learned my profession from some of the finest trial lawyers in the industry,” he said. “It has been an honor to work for this preeminent firm.”
Joe resides in New Milford, Connecticut with his wife Patty and daughter Jacqueline.
