Bridgeport, Connecticut:   Pullman & Comley is pleased to announce the addition of Jill D. Bicks to the firm’s Family Law practice.  Ms. Bicks will join the firm’s Litigation Department and will be based in Pullman & Comley’s Bridgeport office.

Ms. Bicks practices in the area of domestic relations, including pre- and post-nuptial agreements, divorce, child custody, the representation of minor children as attorney or guardian ad litem (GAL), and post-judgment enforcement or modification.  She brings to the Family Law practice a solid background in litigation and alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and Collaborative Divorce, and is recognized for providing clients with cost-effective, sophisticated representation that includes an array of services tailored to their individual and family’s needs.

“Jill has earned a reputation for effective advocacy on behalf of her clients and in being responsive to their needs,” said David Atkins, chairman of the firm’s Litigation Department.  “Our growing Family Law practice group welcomes Jill.”

After graduating law school, Ms. Bicks worked in New York law firms where she handled complex litigation in a variety of areas including antitrust, securities fraud, ERISA and RICO.  She also represented victims of domestic violence, and later focused her practice exclusively on domestic relations.

Ms. Bicks works as an advocate for children and directed a program in the Stamford Court for volunteer GALs.  She served as Founder and Executive Director of Child Advocates of Connecticut, a nonprofit authorized by the Connecticut Judicial Branch that trains court-appointed volunteers.  Ms. Bicks is a member of several prestigious organizations including the Regional Academy of Child Advocates, the Connecticut Collaborative Divorce Group and the New York Peace Institute.  She was recently selected by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys as of the “2015 Ten Best” attorneys in Connecticut.

Ms. Bicks received her B.S. from the Cornell University School of Industrial and Labor Relations in 1985 and her J.D. from New York University School of Law in 1988.  She is admitted to practice in Connecticut, New York and Washington, D.C.
