  • If you’re a business owner, we explain how divorce impacts your business.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to better understand the things that are beginning to unfold. Family Law matters can be very stressful and emotional.

Divorce Mediation & Collaborative Divorce Attorneys

Divorce mediation allows both parties to identify, negotiate and resolve the issues raised by the decision to divorceThe mediator establishes firm ground rules and a comfortable environment so that emotionally charged issues can be objectively discussed. The mediator helps both spouses gather all necessary information and review it systematically. A mediator often helps formulate a more creative solution than the court could offer. When parenting agreements and financial distribution plans are made by the spouses themselves, there is a much better chance of meeting the needs of the entire family. Contact us today to learn how a mediation approach may be better suited to your family situation.

Words cannot express how thankful I am for Paul and his amazing team. The office staff were kind and professional and Paul responded to my inquiry almost immediately. He patiently walked me through a lot of information and quickly set a plan in place that was not only something I was comfortable with, but it also made sense for my situation. I am grateful for his knowledge and warmth during this difficult transition. I would highly recommend Paul and his firm! Thank you for everything!

I received a reference for Attorney Paul McConnell after dealing with a long drawn out custody case. Paul reached out to me in a timely manner and spoke to me about new strategies to explore, not only was he very knowledgeable but kind and compassionate at the same time. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for representation. As a veteran myself I have high regards for Paul for holding himself to such high standards of professionalism.

Frequently Asked Questions About Divorce and Family Law

We do not offer financing, but can point clients to lenders who do.

We do offer a Flat Fee Divorce option for “uncontested divorces” where both parties have decided and agreed upon how to divide their property.  We assist with the preparation and filing of required documents to streamline an otherwise difficult and confusing process.

In addition, we offer a low-cost alternative to other types of family law matters (e.g. custody disputes)  that we refer to as “Consulting.”  For further description, read more about low-cost divorce alternatives.  You can further discuss these options with an attorney during an initial consultation.

Sorry to give a lawyer answer, but: It depends.  For divorce matters, we tell “most” of our clients to plan on nine months.  A few cases are completed in as little as three months, while others sometimes last more than a year.

We cover the entire state of Connecticut. We have offices in Hartford, New Canaan, Greenwich, and New Haven and we also accept appointments in Stamford, Groton, and Shelton. Moreover, we frequently schedule consultations and appointments via Zoom when it is more practical for our clients.
