Your Advocates for Family Law and Divorce Cases in New Haven.

New Haven County Family Law Firm

Trustworthy Reputation from Our Experienced Legal Team

When people come to us for help with their divorce, they are often hurting. In the midst of their pain, they also have important, and perhaps difficult legal issues to resolved. Property has to be divided, and questions like alimony, child custody, and child support may need to be addressed. People need to know that their lawyer will remove at least some of the burden by providing real leadership and direction. At Hirsch Legal, LLC, we know that strong leadership is best given by an attorney who first bends a listening ear to their client. What are the concerns first and foremost on the client’s mind? What do they need to get out of a settlement to best move on to the next chapter in their life? When we know the answers to questions like these, clients know that the strong leadership we provide is headed in the right direction. 

Our founding partner, Attorney Carmina K. Hirsch, has won awards for her legal acumen. Attorney Hirsch has been recognized by SuperLawyers every year since 2014. Furthermore, she has earned consistently high rankings for Client Satisfaction. There’s a reason for that. Strong advocacy is certainly one of them, but helping truly empower her clients is another. Attorney Hirsch helps not only with representation, but with legal coaching for those that desire it. She understands that clients would like a stress-free, peaceful resolution if it all possible and we do all we can to achieve that. We also know that clients want to be protected and know that someone will advise them on whether a legal fight is necessary. The entire team at Hirsch Legal, LLC is that someone. Call today at (203) 769-7388 or contact us online to set up a consultation.

Divorce Lawyers Serving Upper Fairfield County

Hirsch Legal, LLC has earned a good reputation over the years, serving clients throughout New Haven County from our Shelton office. Our reputation is such that people now come from as far as the upper part of Fairfield County, including Westport, Trumble, and Monroe. Clients come to us because they want to know they’re working with a family law firm that focuses on empowering their clients with knowledge and understands the right balance that has to be struck between negotiation and confrontation at the bargaining table.

The issues that arise in property settlements can be complex. Who gets the house? Will it be sold? Are there stock portfolios, other real estate investments, or important family heirlooms that have to be divided? Whether someone gets a satisfactory outcome may well depend on the quality and leadership of their attorney. Other matters vital to a divorce settlement can, depending on the circumstances, include alimony and child custody. Whom will the children live with? What will the visitation schedule be? How will be important decisions in their life be made? Was one parent primarily responsible for staying with the children during the marriage? If so, how can they be made financially whole now that they will be on their own? How these questions get answered is fundamental to shaping a spouse’s life as it moves into a new chapter. Hirsch Legal, LLC fights to see that they get answered to our client’s satisfaction.
