June marks the start of the Connecticut Bar Association's (CBA) 2010-2011 bar year and the introduction of a new president for the association. Attorney Ralph J. Monaco of New London's Conway Londregan Sheehan & Monaco PC became the 87thpresident of the CBA and the second youngest to ever hold the position.
Monaco, who practices civil and commercial litigation with an emphasis in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death, product liability, medical malpractice and insurance litigation, was admitted to practice in 1993 after graduating Quinnipiac University School of Law with honors. He quickly became an active member of the organization, and in his service to the bar has held positions in the CBA as treasurer for the 2007-2008 bar year and vice president for the 2008-2009 bar year. Monaco continues to serve on the association's House of Delegates and in various positions of the CBA's Young Lawyers Section.
Monaco's accolades include the designation of "New Leader of the Law for New London County" in 2002 by the Connecticut Law Tribune.
He is admitted to practice before the state and federal courts in Connecticut and New Jersey and also before the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the United States Supreme Court.
