Dori-Ellen Feltman | DIvorce & Family Law, Westport CT

"Dori-Ellen is a brilliantly skilled attorney. She is smart, organized, and tough. When my ex-husband filed for shared-physical custody of our children after being divorced for 8 years, Dori-Ellen put a detailed plan together and helped me stand up to him in court and fight for what was in the best interest of our children. As someone who is intimidated by the court system, I felt confident and well represented with Dori-Ellen by my side. Dori-Ellen is a fighter and I highly recommend her."
