Family Attorney, Connecticut

Get the Legal Solutions You Need

As a lawyer with more than 25 years of experience, I have learned the importance of solving problems by the most efficient and effective means possible. Conflict is inevitable, but in the majority of situations there are a variety of ways to resolve issues. The thing that many people don't realize is that a collaborative — rather than a litigated — method of solving disagreements almost always has a better end result, leaving both parties more satisfied with the process and the outcome.

If you are in need of legal representation for matters including family law, real estate, estate planning and probate, contact family lawyer Elizabeth A. Edwards online or call 203-544-9945.

High Net Worth Divorce Attorney

At The Law Offices of Elizabeth A. Edwards, LLC, I handle a wide range of divorce matters. My practice balances complex emotional and financial issues while pursuing solutions that best support my client's needs. Whether dealing with child support or complex retirement assets, I am equally comfortable with high net worth divorces and property division. If there are mental health issues involved, complicated tax issues or the need to divide up a shared business in a divorce, I can help you.

Alternatives to Litigation

I have the skill and experience needed to take your case to trial, to resolve the issues through collaborative dispute resolution or through mediation.

  • Collaborative law: This is an approach to divorce in which both parties are represented by counsel of their own choosing. However, the attorneys are chosen because they belong to an identified group or association and have made a commitment to represent their clients in reaching a settlement without resorting to litigation. The role of the attorney is to facilitate the development of a voluntary settlement without the threat or use of litigation. In contrast to the traditional role of attorneys in prosecuting and defending legal cases, this is a revolutionary approach that requires specific training and certification. Although an attorney is present for each party at all meetings, the divorcing parties maintain control over the process, the cost and the outcome.

  • Mediation: Mediation involves both parties working together with the help of a mediator. The mediator facilitates the discussion and helps the parties work together fairly to find an acceptable resolution.

I can represent you as your attorney in a litigated divorce, a collaborative divorce or serve as a neutral for your mediation.

Real Estate, Probate and Estate Planning

I also represent clients in Connecticut for:

  • Real estate: I handle residential purchases and sales, refinancing, short sales, foreclosures and easements.

  • Probate: I provide a wide range of probate administration services, helping with will and trust administration, guardianships and conservatorships, adoptions and probate court litigation.

  • Estate planning: I can help you pass on your wealth in a way that is clear and effective. I have experience with wills, living wills, trusts, powers of attorney, guardianships and conservatorships, and the complicated estate planning tax issues that are involved in high net worth estate planning.
