I am no longer accepting clients in divorce cases, but you may be interested in the information on this website, especially the Divorce Primer.  I am referring new divorce mediation clients to Frances Calafiore, an experienced mediator and collaborative divorce lawyer. Fran's Avon office is located at 43 West Main Street. Contact her at 860-296-1555 and visit her Linked in page at frances-calafiore-4920b75.

I am also no longer accepting clients who are seeking representation for injuries related to childhood sexual abuse. I am referring those individuals to Attorney Richard Kenny.
