Pullman & Comley Voted #1 ADR Provider in New England

BRIDGEPORT, CT: ALM, a business-to-business information and intelligence media company, has named law firm Pullman & Comley the top Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) provider in New England for 2020. Subscribers to ALM’s law publications in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont chose the winners through the Best of New England 2020 survey. In results published in the Connecticut Law Tribune and other outlets, Pullman & Comley received the top ranking in the Overall ADR Provider category.

Pullman & Comley has been a leader in ADR since establishing its practice in 2012. The law firm offers mediation and arbitration services in complex civil matters in state and federal court, including commercial, construction, employment, environmental, health care, insurance, personal injury, and probate disputes. In addition, the ADR practice offers services in all family and matrimonial matters including financial, custody and parenting disputes.

Pullman & Comley is the only firm in the State of Connecticut that features four retired Connecticut judges who are highly experienced mediators and arbitrators. Retired Judges Robert L. Holzberg, Lynda B. Munro, Anne C. Dranginis, and Michael E. Riley offer counsel and their clients more than 75 years of judicial experience in successfully resolving high profile, complex civil and family disputes.

In addition, the firm’s ADR practice includes many experienced attorneys, several of whom are on the American Arbitration Association’s national roster of arbitrators and mediators. Recognized for its work in serving as mediators and arbitrators in a wide range of civil matters, Pullman & Comley’s ADR practice is also looked upon as a highly reliable and respected resource to conduct investigations into sensitive matters.

“This year has presented unique challenges for the justice system and our team at Pullman & Comley has risen to the occasion,” says Judge Holzberg, who leads the firm’s ADR practice and served as a Connecticut Superior Court judge for more than 22 years before retiring from the bench in 2012. “Through Zoom mediations, arbitrations, collaborative divorces and other virtual services, we have helped many different types of clients reach agreements and resolve conflicts, which is especially rewarding in such an uncertain time.”
