Pullman’s Family Law team was recognized at the 2022 Connecticut Legal Awards celebration with the “Specialty Litigation Department of the Year” award.
Pullman's Family Law Practice remains at the leading edge of Connecticut matrimonial law, regularly litigating, mediating, arbitrating, and defending and prosecuting appeals involving the most complex financial and child custody related dissolutions of marriage actions in the state.
The Connecticut Supreme Court heard only four family law cases in 2016. Of those cases, Pullman & Comley’s Family Law attorneys argued, and were victorious, in two.
