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. 

At Hirsch Legal, LLC, we do more than represent our clients. We help them understand exactly what is happening in their case, why it’s happening, and what to do next. The traditional role of an attorney as advocate, fighting passionately for our client’s best interests, is the type of legal service some clients prefer. Other clients are looking to take up the reigns of their divorce themselves and want us to serve as their review counsel or legal coach when using an outside mediator. Still others are searching for an amicable process from the start, in which case our mediation package is their preferred choice. Whichever option you choose, we will design our services to be tailored to your unique needs and circumstances.

Respected in the Legal Community

Attorney Carmina K. Hirsch has been recognized by the prestigious Super Lawyers list 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. Part-time Paralegal, Elena Tessitore’s history in early childhood education and the financial services industry, ensures a keen understanding of the nuanced needs of clients and their children.
