July 12, 2013
Pullman & Comley Bankruptcy and Creditors' Rights and Family Law attorney Jessica Grossarth was quoted in "New LGBT Section Contributes To Diversity," an article discussing the creation of a LGBT Section to the Connecticut Bar Association.
The new LGBT Section, which Jessica is the chair, aims to promote and support awareness of legal issues that may affect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. According to Jessica, "The litigation before the U.S. Supreme Court that ultimately overturned the Defense of Marriage Act, which had denied Social Security and other federal financial benefits to same-sex couples, provided a timely launching point. DOMA helped propel the idea into reality, and thankfully, we had a lot of support."
