Family Law and Divorce in New Haven

There are any number of reasons that cause people to reach out for the help of a New Haven County family lawyer. But there are some common threads that run through all of those reasons.

Leadership & Empowerment

Connecticut law and procedure is unfamiliar to most people who don’t work it in every day like we do. What’s unknown can also be unnerving, and our experience and grasp of the law, in all its nuanced detail, can give clients the reassurance of knowing there is a steady hand at the wheel. 

But people still need to feel they are in charge of their own case. At Hirsch Legal, LLC, our goal is to combine strong leadership with real empowerment. When a person is going through a divorce, it’s their life that has been placed on the bargaining table in a settlement. Everything from alimony to child custody to visitation has to be worked out. We work hard to both represent and educate our clients, so they can take as active a role as they choose in their own litigation proceedings. 

At Hirsch Legal, LLC, our New Haven County family lawyer understand what it takes to negotiate, mediate, and—if absolutely necessary—litigate. We aim for a peaceful resolution, but we never let our clients get taken advantage of and we make sure opposing counsel knows that. Call today at (203) 769-7388 or contact us online to arrange for a consultation. 

A divorce settlement ends one chapter of a person’s life and opens the door to a new one. That new chapter may still result in changes that calls for revisiting the terms of a settlement. A change in a parent’s career, for better or for worse, may necessitate modifications to child support. Perhaps one of the spouses is not living up to the terms of the settlement, placing them in contempt. Legal counsel can hold that spouse accountable. A paternity test may be needed by either a father who wants visitation rights or a mother who needs financial support. Hirsch Legal, LLC is there for all of these needs, and more.
