Client Testimonials

Child Custody Related Reviews

"I hired Dori-Ellen for a highly contested divorce and custody trial in Middletown, CT. The other party in the case was seeking to gain 100% custody. There was a real risk that I could lose custody of my children. With Dori-Ellen I was able to get joint legal custody. Dori-Ellen is smart, intelligent, creative, aggressive, knowledgeable and experienced. She is a winner!"

– Jim; Stamford, 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."

Thank you so much for making this very difficult and confusing process seem a lot less daunting!"

– Nathan; Darien, CT

"Dori-Ellen represented me in a termination of alimony case. My ex-wife began cohabitating with her boyfriend. DE's guidance, knowledge of the law and presentation of options were all stellar.
