About Hirsch Legal, LLC

Empowerment. Advocacy. Resolution. Those three words define what we do at Hirsch Legal, LLC. Clients come to us needing to resolve all the difficult issues that arise in a divorce. Those issues are complex legally and can be even more so on an emotional level. With the divorce settlement serving as a crucial fulcrum point to the next chapter of their life, clients want to understand what’s happening and how Connecticut law will be working (or not working) for them. Clients want to know that their lawyer is doing everything possible to achieve a stress-free resolution—but not at the expense of the client’s vital interests. 

Hirsch Legal, LLC does more than represent our clients. We help them understand exactly what’s happening. We’re even available to step back simply into a coaching role if the client wants to take a leadership role in settlement negotiations. We’re also perfectly comfortable assuming the traditional advocacy job of a lawyer and fighting passionately for our client’s best interests.

Respected in the Legal Community

Attorney Carmina K. Hirsch has been recognized by the prestigious Super Lawyers list as a Rising Star, and been honored every year since 2014. She has been further recognized by the National Association of Professional Women for Outstanding Excellence and Dedication to Her Profession and the Achievement of Women. 

That kind of track record and peer recognition alone can make clients confident, but the backup Attorney Hirsch receives from her excellent legal staff only strengthens the firm’s ability to educate, empower, and advocate. Rita Barnard’s background in bookkeeping has given her an exceptional ability to understand complicated financial issues and break them down in easy-to-understand language. Rita, and fellow paralegal Elena Tessitore have a sharp grasp on all that will arise during discovery and the process of filing legal motions. Their attention to detail can give clients real peace of mind.
