Are you involved in a divorce, custody or other family case?

Are you feeling anxious about your family situation?

Do you need help with the legal process?

Do you want to know what your options are?

If you are like most people, the legal process can be confusing and complicated. Lawyers and judges use unfamiliar words or legal terminology. Paperwork needs to be drafted and filed in a timely manner, and the courtroom has special rules and procedures. 

I understand what you are going through and can guide you through the legal process even if you have never been in a courtroom before. You should not go through this process alone or unprepared because serious mistakes can occur which cannot be corrected.

"The entire divorce process can be intimidating, confusing, and stressful. I chose Attorney Marguerite Friar because of her no-nonsense style and exceptional understanding of family law in Connecticut... I know that I had the best representation and would highly recommend her services for anyone seeking competent and thorough legal counsel."

W. Hohler, formerly of Dayville, CT
