Biography: Since 1981 Attorney John L. Laudati has practiced extensively and primarily as a trial lawyer. He concentrates his practice on civil litigation, personal injury law, family and criminal law. He has litigated cases in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies. He strongly believes that every case should be handled as if destined for trial. This philosophy requires aggressive, professional advocacy. Most often this approach results in a reasonable settlement or resolution of a client’s case. When resolution cannot be achieved, Attorney Laudati has enjoyed a very successful track record at trial.Not all cases end up in a trial. Oftentimes negotiation and mediation is a better, more efficient approach. Several years ago, Attorney Laudati was approached by a group of attorneys who suggested that he become a trained mediator and collaborative family attorney. He took this advice and undertook the required training. Attorney Laudati believes that in the area of family law particularly, a mediated or collaborative approach not only avoids lengthy and costly litigation, but also enables parties to resolve their differences with dignity, respect and a measure of control over the process.Attorney Laudati has resided in Granby, Connecticut since 1986. He did his undergraduate studies at the University of Connecticut where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. He subsequently attended the University of Connecticut School of Law. While attending law school he was employed as an assistant clerk in the Hartford Superior Court. He clerked on civil jury trials and the questions of law calendar. He has been in private practice since his admission to the bar in 1981.
