Welcome to my first blog post!
I have been practicing divorce law in Connecticut for over 10 years. For most of that, I have practiced with Tara, my wife and law partner. Given that I am focused on family or matrimonial law, it is difficult to pin down one area of divorce law that I have more experience in over others. However, it is fair to say that my practice involves a relatively high level of litigation and trial experience. While some attorneys never step foot inside a court room, I’m usually there at least once per week.
While there is plenty to not like about divorce, the practice of divorce law can be very interesting. You learn a lot about a wide variety of topics. The trial advocacy aspect of the practice is particularly engaging as well. Preparing and presenting cases in an adversarial setting is an art as well as a science.
In Connecticut, all family cases are disposed of either through an agreement or by a decision from a judge or agreed upon arbitrator. There are no jury trials.
I thought that this blog could be an interesting destination for those who had questions about any aspect of divorce law and practice in Connecticut, specifically the Fairfield County area in southwestern Connecticut.
