Joseph D’Aguanno, an Italian New Yorker with a rich multicultural background, grew up in an environment that celebrated diversity. Amidst a circle of Italian and Hispanic friends and family, he also shared close relationships with individuals from Greek, Chinese, Irish, and Hindu backgrounds. His childhood was marked by his parents’ work commitments, which led him to spend considerable time engaging in sports and moving between the homes of friends, providing him with a spectrum of experiences that shaped his upbringing.
The life experiences Joe encountered instilled in him a profound understanding of the significance of family and friendship, transcending the boundaries of loyalty and affection. These experiences underscored the principle that every individual deserves justice and equality, but respect is an earned attribute. He embraced the belief that respect could be garnered through both being respectful towards others and through steadfast dedication, hard work, and integrity.
Having obtained two Bachelor of Science degrees from the University of Arizona, Joe earned a Juris Doctor degree from Arizona State University College of Law. His academic journey included the distinguished role of Production Editor for Jurimetrics: The Journal of Law, Science, and Technology. The American Bar Association honored Joe with the ABA’s Section of Science and Technology Award for Outstanding Senior Editor. Joe also received the law school’s Outstanding Pro Bono Award acknowledging his commitment to help those who could not afford legal services.

Overall, I’m very happy with my experience. I was impressed when I was able to speak with my attorney, Joe D’Aguanno and have all of my questions addressed prior to signing. Regina was very easy to to work with. She provided frequent updates. When I had concerns about miscommunication with her, Joe clarified right away. He did a great job negotiating with two insurance companies and their attorneys. I believe my settlement was fair.
