Theresa L. Giannone
“You really get to help people.”
Theresa, an equity partner at Villari, Giannone and Matteo, graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 1992, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree with high distinction. She then went on to the Widener University School of Law, where she received her law degree with honors in 1995. While attending law school Theresa was named a member of the prestigious Delaware Journal of Corporate Law, first as a member of the staff and later as a member of the board.
Upon graduating from law school, Theresa was selected to serve as a law clerk to the Honorable James N. Diefenderfer, President Judge of the Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas (retired). As a law clerk for two years Theresa gained extensive research and writing experience and played a key role in helping draft civil court opinions and rulings. Theresa next worked as an associate at a small general practice firm, where she gained a wide range of legal experience, including in the areas of bankruptcy law, family law, and divorce proceedings, but worked primarily in the area of plaintiff’s personal injury litigation.
Since joining Villari, Giannone and Matteo, Theresa continues to represent victims of personal injury, with a concentration in medical malpractice cases, tractor-trailer collision cases and other major personal injury matters. Her dedication to her clients and persistent efforts on their behalf are two of her most valued assets. Theresa is admitted to practice law in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Washington, D.C. and is a member of the Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers’ Association.
“While I was in law school, I took a job at a firm where they did a lot of civil work and I found that I enjoyed that and had an affinity for it. So continuing through law school, I went in that direction. And I liked that aspect of it in terms of helping people, the research that was involved, being able to get into court and all of those things… In this type of law, you really get to help people. And the longer you do it, you get to see the outcomes of the cases you were able to handle and how not just what the end result of the case is but then how it went on to help somebody, especially with the types of cases we do to help children or help families.” – Attorney Theresa Giannone
