Finding Peace Through Strength

Family Law

Connecticut Family Law and Divorce Attorney Paul McConnell began practicing family law in 1997.  Today, he and his team devote the majority of the practice to all areas of family law.  The McConnell Family Law Group currently provides a broad range of services to clients whose families are undergoing change.

Divorce

When looking for a Connecticut divorce lawyer, it’s crucial to retain a skilled attorney. Divorce is a challenging and emotional process for people. At  McConnell Family Law, we guide you through the process and will protect your rights, every step of the way.

  • We will help you understand decisions during the divorce process and how those decisions will affect your finances, taxes, and personal life.
  • We guide you through each step and help you make difficult decisions on information rather than emotions.
  • If you have a will or trust, we review your documents and suggest actions be taken to protect your assets.
  • If you’re a business owner, we explain how divorce impacts your business.
  • For child or spousal support, our attorneys have the necessary experience to negotiate terms that will be agreeable to you.

Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation allows both parties to identify, negotiate and resolve the issues raised by the decision to divorce. The mediator establishes firm ground rules and a comfortable environment so that emotionally charged issues can be discussed. The mediator helps both spouses gather 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 better chance of meeting the needs of the entire family.

Criminal Defense Attorneys

With early intervention, knowledgeable representation, and a zealous defense of your constitutional rights, an experienced attorney can make a significant impact on the outcome of your case. Of course, specific results will vary depending upon your unique situation, but at the very least you can be sure that you have the guidance, advice, and passionate representation you need.

Client Testimonials

The McConnell Family Law firm was the perfect anecdote for one of the most troubling times in my life. After 22-years of marriage and with two teenagers my husband decided to leave. My ex-husband is a man accustomed to getting what he wants professionally, personally, and in our marriage. Having these attorneys by my side was the perfect anecdote. When explaining things to me, they were always compassionate and thorough. My lawyer was steadfast and passionate in court and in conferences and had an ability to disarm my husband’s attorney while connecting with the judge. I’d recommend them to anyone facing the difficult reality of divorce.

Client Testimonial

"Attorney Paul McConnell and his team are down to earth and very patient. They listened to my legal concerns and issues and worked on my case with integrity. They represented my kids and I in a post divorce legal disagreement which was very challenging. Paul worked with respect and professionalism against an unprofessional and unethical attorney on the opposing counsel. Amazing family Attorney and practice. Highly recommended"
