Navigating The Challenges Of Divorce And Family Law

Family dynamics can be complicated. They become even more complex when they intersect with the law. Major transitions such as marriage, divorce, separation and adoption involve weighty legal and emotional considerations.

At Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, LLP, we guide clients through these transitions with the utmost level of dedication, professionalism and understanding. Our lawyers in this area, Valerie DePaolo and Laurie DeNigris, are partners at the firm. They have more than 50 years of combined experience, including significant experience with alternative dispute resolution. Both are highly knowledgeable in Connecticut family law.

We serve clients throughout the Hartford area facing a wide range of family law issues, including:

  • Divorce and separation
  • Premarital agreements
  • Cohabitation agreements
  • Alimony determinations
  • Child custody and support determinations
  • Post-divorce modifications
  • Custody modifications
  • Property division

Our Approach

While we are always prepared to take cases to trial, our family law attorneys emphasize more collaborative, out-of-court resolutions whenever possible. This approach may spare you the stress and expense of time-consuming court proceedings. Additionally, it empowers you to have more of a say in important decisions.

As creative problem solvers, our attorneys will get to know you and understand what's important to you. We will then advise a strategy based on your goals and values. That may mean working out a resolution through collaborative law methods, mediation or negotiation. If protecting your interests requires going to court, we are well-equipped to do so.
