For the second time in nine weeks, the Hartford Judicial District Grievance Panel has found  probable cause exists for the Statewide Grievance Committee to investigate Hartford-based Cicchiello & Cicchiello partner Manny Cicchiello for potential violations of four separate Rules of Professional Conduct related to claims he made against a former law associate he accused of improperly luring clients away to a new firm.

The first time the panel found probable cause existed to investigate Cicchiello—on May 24—it was acting on a complaint that Alexander Sarris’ attorney had filed.
