Paul received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and History from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1986. A 1989 graduate of Rutgers School of Law – Camden, Paul received the honor of Best Brief for his treatment addressing the issue of “Duty to Warn”.
Paul gained invaluable experience as a trial attorney at the Kings County District Attorney's Office. As a Senior Assistant District Attorney, Paul focused on the prosecution of high profile, complex cases including homicides and other serious felonies. He also supervised less experienced attorneys in that office. “My six years as an Assistant District Attorney afforded me the opportunity to work closely with experts in the areas of medicine, forensics, psychology, accident reconstruction and DNA analysis. Fortunately, I was able to successfully transfer this knowledge into the civil arena.” Since leaving the D.A.'s office in 1996, Paul continued to hone his skills as a trial attorney with the law firm of Armienti & Brooks, P.C. Responsible for a large caseload from inception through trial, he has handled many multi-million dollar cases involving premises liability, negligent security and construction accidents in both state and federal court. Paul joined the firm of Dubois, Billig, Loughlin, Conaty & Weisman in July, 1998. As Senior Trial Counsel, his experience as a seasoned litigator handling diverse criminal and civil matters added another dimension of expertise to DBLC&W.
For nearly two decades at Gruvman, Giordano & Glaws, LLP, Paul’s primary focus is defending general liability and employment litigation matters. These include gender, race and disability discrimination as well as sexual harassment, hostile workplace and retaliation claims.
