Frank J. Raio - July 3, 1960 - November 3, 2013
Frank joined The Biller Law Firm in 1993, and became a partner in Biller, Sachs, Raio & Zito in 1999. His practice areas included Criminal Law, Insurance Litigation, and Negligence. Frank successfully litigated a number of complex property insurance cases that involved issues of first impression. He also participated in a number of appellate matters including successfully arguing Northrop v. Allstate Ins. Co., 247 Conn. 242 (1998), which was an important decision by the Connecticut Supreme Court that continues to be cited on behalf of policyholders.
Frank received his B.A. from Brandeis University in 1983, where he was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame for his athletic achievements in 2006. In 2008, he achieved a similar induction into the Hamden High School Hall of Fame. He received his J.D. from The Quinnipiac University School of Law in 1991. He was admitted to the Connecticut Bar in 1991, and the U.S. District Court, District of Connecticut in 1997.
Frank was also an Associate Professor at Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, Connecticut, where he began teaching First Amendment Law in 2002. Frank served as assistant coach as well as associate head coach for the Albertus Magnus men’s soccer team since the program’s inception in 1990.
Frank touched the lives of everyone who crossed his path with his kind and gentle ways. He was admired for his modesty, and his willingness to always lend a sympathetic ear to anyone in need of consolation or advice. He was an exceptional partner and friend who represented all we strive to be as attorneys and human beings. Frank is missed by everyone who had the pleasure of meeting and knowing him.
