Phillip C. Wiskow, Matthew Villani and Dennis Shlionsky Join SSDMd

By Snyder Sarno D'Aniello Maceri & da Costa LLC on July 01, 2021


Snyder Sarno D'Aniello Maceri & da Costa LLC is pleased to announce the expansion of its Medical Malpractice & Personal Injury Department with the addition of three new attorneys.  The expansion is driven by the addition of Phillip C. Wiskow, Esq. and his firm Gelman, Gelman, Wiskow & McCarthy LLC as Of Counsel to our Firm.  In addition, Matthew Villani, Esq. is joining as Counsel along with Dennis Shlionsky, Esq. as an Associate.

Despite the law firm of SSDMd being formed only slightly more than ten years ago, SSDMd has established an excellent reputation throughout New Jersey’s legal community.  One example of the Firm’s significant reputation is reflected in the fact that in 2021 four of SSDMd’s named partners, Angelo Sarno, Jerry D’Aniello, Joseph Maceri and Paul da Costa, were selected to Thomson Reutuers' New Jersey Super Lawyers “Top 100” list.*  Although the firm has an attorney head count of less than thirty, SSDMd had more attorneys named to the “Top 100” list than any other firm in the New Jersey region.

Combining the skills of our proven attorneys has allowed us to provide strong, personalized representation in many legal matters. Our attorneys are carefully and strategically chosen to address all aspects of Family Law, Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury issues. The Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury team at SSDMd, led by Paul M. da Costa, can provide the dedicated, experienced representation you need after becoming a victim of another person’s or corporation’s negligent and careless conduct. Paul and his team have obtained numerous significant seven-figure verdicts and settlements on behalf of their clients.

Prior to joining SSDMd, Mr. Wiskow was the managing partner of Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC. He has 34 years of experience handling cases involving medical malpractice, products liability and personal injury. During his career, Phil has successfully litigated more than a dozen cases that resulted in more than $1 million in damages. He has also tried more than 125 jury trials to completion in both state and federal courts, including New Jersey, Florida and California. Phil is a certified civil trial attorney by the Supreme Court of New Jersey.  Less than three percent of all trial attorneys in New Jersey have earned this distinction. Certification involves a rigorous application process that requires lawyers to demonstrate a high level of experience and knowledge in civil law, successful completion of a written examination and recognition by peers as having superb litigation skills and a solid reputation for professionalism and ethics.  Phil has been selected for inclusion in New Jersey Super Lawyers** several times, and he has argued cases before the New Jersey Supreme Court.

Before joining SSDMd, Mr. Villani worked alongside Mr. Wiskow at Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC. Matthew Villani has focused his practice on representing those injured in motor vehicle crashes, motorcycle crashes, slip and falls, and other complex personal injury matters. Matthew has worked on numerous cases resulting in large six-figure settlement for his client. He is also a certified civil trial attorney by the Supreme Court of New Jersey, and Matthew has been selected for inclusion in New Jersey Super Lawyers “Rising Star” lists in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.*** 

Prior to joining SSDMd, Mr. Shlionsky has devoted his career to representing people injured through no fault of their own.  He has litigated numerous types of personal injury cases, including complex cases with catastrophic injuries.  Dennis has worked on cases that resulted in six and seven-figure resolutions, and he has assisted in the recovery of more than $10 million for his clients over his career.  He has been selected for inclusion in New Jersey Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” list in 2019 and 2020.***

We are pleased to welcome our new additions, Mr. Wiskow, Mr. Villani, and Mr. Shlionsky, to SSDMd.
