Biography

Joseph “Joey” D. Aiello had his sights set on becoming a lawyer since he was a boy growing up in Huntsville. One day, his Boy Scout Explorers group invited a group of veteran judges to come and talk about the court system and the legal profession and for Aiello his career die was cast.

While in high school, he worked part-time for an earlier incarnation of Morris, King and Hodge, and he knew that he’d like to work there someday as a real attorney. While obtaining his undergraduate degree in political science, magna cum laude, from the University of Alabama in 1998, he interned with Madison County Circuit Judge Joe Battle.  He then attended the university’s School of Law, where he interned for Federal Magistrate Judge Michael Putnam. He got his law degree,  cum laude, in 2001, and returned to Huntsville to practice law. But he had to wait three years before joining the Morris firm.

Joey Aiello spent the first three years of his legal career working as an attorney at two other firms. While working at the first firm, Fees & Burgess, Aiello first realized that what he likes most in law is writing briefs in motion practice and appeals. After two years, he joined the firm of Leo & Brooks, where he continued to focus on writing but also handled litigation.

In addition to his busy law practice, Aiello is also heavily involved in the community, serving on the City of Huntsville’s Air Pollution Control Board and on the board of directors of United Cerebral Palsy for Huntsville and North Alabama.

Experience

In 2007, Joey Aiello was co-counsel in a case that resulted in a $3.1-million verdict against an ambulance company that was found liable in causing a collision that killed a Madison County teenager. The ambulance company appealed, and Aiello handled the brief writing as the case went to the Eleventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, which upheld the verdict.

Joey Aiello also successfully briefed an appeal to the Alabama Supreme Court in the case of Ex parte U.S. Innovations Group, Inc., in a case involving whether Madison Circuit Court had subject-matter jurisdiction over a wrongful-death claim stemming from an explosion on federal property.
