I joined the firm in 2017 and have been practicing since 2012, always with a focus in family law. My caseload involves the representation of individuals who are facing the end of their marriage and are dealing with such divorce-related issues as the division of assets and debts, alimony, child support, child custody and visitation. I also have experience mediating and litigating custody disputes for non-married parties, and have handled cases that involve the rights of grandparents and other third parties in custody cases.

I have an extensive background representing the best interest of children in Connecticut's family courts and have sought to extend that background into private practice. Through this work I have helped parents navigate the court system while always looking out for the children caught in the middle of the conflict. Because of this, I understand the dynamics and intricacies of the family court process. My goal is to provide realistic expectations to parents, while minimizing the impact the court process has on their children. I am always hoping to reduce conflict instead of inflate it.

Another area of my practice consists of handling child protection matters, where the Department of Children and Families has become involved. I have appeared in various juvenile courts throughout the state for the purpose of protecting a parent’s right to raise their children. I have worked with many cases where substance abuse or mental health issues have been the deciding factor in a custody determination. I have helped the parents in these situations to regain control and get themselves back into the lives of their children.

While I handle traditional litigation cases, I am also specially trained in both mediation and collaborative divorce and have served as special master in the Tolland Superior Court. I am a Board Member for the Connecticut Council for Non-Adversarial Divorce and a member of the Collaborative Divorce Lawyers Association of Greater Hartford. In 2018, I was selected as a SuperLawyers’ Rising Star.

0.5 out of 5 stars

Through the domestic violence advocacy, they referred me to Katie pro bono. I imagine this is why she did not advocate for me, as she was not getting paid. I had strong and clear proof for a restraining order or at least to provide defense against my ex trying to get a restraining order on me. Katie not only did not advocate for me but set up an agreement where I would have to be out of my own house in a very short period of time and thus I lost. All of this had nothing to do with why we were at court and she ultimately made it worse. This case has been dragging on and she has refused to take any of it on.
