The Family Law Firm of Healy + Eliot is a boutique firm devoted exclusively to the practice of family law, including divorce, alimony, child support, property division, child custody and parenting time, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, modifications and enforcement proceedings.
Our lawyers are keenly aware that many people come to us in times of personal crisis, and we recognize the importance of offering our clients our compassion, patience, and understanding, in addition to exceptional legal counsel. The satisfaction that we derive from our work comes from helping our clients emerge from challenging personal circumstances feeling empowered, and confident about their future and those of their loved ones.
Our two founding partners are widely recognized in their industry as both outstanding negotiators and superb litigators. We pride ourselves on being strong and tenacious advocates for our clients, yet we are also extremely mindful of the financial and emotional impact that contentious litigation can have on our clients and their children. As a result, we take tremendous pride in our ability to negotiate favorable, strategic, creative, and well-thought-out settlements on behalf of our clients whenever possible.
However, when cases cannot settle, we are also highly skilled, formidable, and experienced trial attorneys who will not hesitate to try cases when necessary. We often find that our reputation in the courtroom keeps our adversaries at the negotiating table. Whether we are called upon by our clients to negotiate or litigate, we bring with us the skills, attention to detail, and energy necessary to develop and execute thoughtful strategies to help our clients meet their individual goals.
The Family Law Firm of Healy + Eliot serves all four corners of Connecticut, with a focus on Fairfield County, including the towns of New Canaan, Greenwich, Westport, Darien, Stamford, Norwalk, Weston, Ridgefield, Wilton, Newtown, Easton, Fairfield, and Trumbull.
