Lynda B. Munro, Connecticut Superior Court Judge (Ret.) is Of Counsel at Pullman & Comley in the firm's Family Law practice.  

Former Judge Munro retired in 2014 after 20 years of distinguished service on the Connecticut bench. She served as a Presiding Judge for the Family Division of the New Haven Superior Court, Chief Administrative Judge for Family Matters from 2008-2013, and Presiding Judge of the Regional Family Docket for seven years. She has assisted parties and counsel in resolving hundreds of couples and high-conflict family disputes.  

During her judicial career, Judge Munro sat on the Complex Litigation Docket, special proceedings, jury and court trials.  She heard cases in the Meriden, New London, New Haven, Hartford, Waterbury, Middlesex and Stamford-Norwalk judicial districts. Because of her years of writing and trying cases to the bench, she is particularly well-suited to assist our Appellate practice.

Before being sworn in as a Superior Court Judge in 1994, Judge Munro spent 15 years as a private practice attorney representing municipalities, individuals and business entities in municipal, land use, civil and family matters.

The former chair of the Judicial Education Committee, Judge Munro taught classes in civil, general and family law to the Superior Court Bench for more than 10 years.  She also taught numerous courses through the Connecticut Bar Association, the New England Bar Association, the Connecticut Chapter of Matrimonial Lawyers, the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association and many other organizations, consortiums and associations.  For the past six years, she has been an adjunct law professor at Quinnipiac Law School.  

Judge Munro serves on the editorial board of Family Law Quarterly, a publication of the American Bar Association. She is a Trustee Emeritus of Connecticut College and was recently awarded the Connecticut College Medal, the highest honor the College can confer, for her accomplishments and service.
