Ralph V. Pagano’s practice is diverse, spanning complex legal matters involving technology, aviation, motor vehicles, premises liability, intellectual property, insurance, entertainment, and commercial disputes. In addition to litigating hundreds of cases over his career, he is one of only a few lawyers that has litigated the rights of actors under the Screen Actor’s Guild Commercials Contract. Before changing careers to become a lawyer, Ralph was an engineer with Western Union, RCA/GE American Communications and AT&T Bell Laboratories, making him well suited for some of the complex matters in which the Firm is engaged. He has united his technological and legal pursuits by becoming a registered patent attorney before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. He has been recognized among his peers and clients by being bestowed with the highest assessment, an AV rating from Martindale HubbellTM and as a leader in the field by Super LawyersTM.
