WILTON, Conn. -- Two Connecticut law firms — Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder of Bridgeport, and Day Pitney, which has offices throughout the state including in Stamford and Greenwich — are being sued by a Wilton family, accused of overbilling in a medical malpractice lawsuit, according to the Connecticut Post.

The lawsuit, pending in Superior Court in New Haven, accuses the Koskoff firm of overbilling the D’Attilo family by more than $5 million, in violation of state law, according to the Post.

The D’Attilos hired the firm in March 2003 for a medical malpractice suit involving their son, Danny, who lost oxygen at birth, leading to cerebral palsy and an inability to walk, talk or eat on his own, the Post said.

After two trials, they reached a $25 million settlement with the insurance company representing a doctor and Maternal Fetal Care, P.C., of Stamford, the Post said.

Day Pitney was brought in to structure and administer a financial trust fund, as well as to assist in Probate Court proceedings, the Connecticut Post said.

Both law firms deny the accusations, the story said.
