We were hired to represent a husband in a conservatorship hearing against his wife filed by the State of Connecticut. The State was seeking to have our client’s wife conserved. In the process of doing so, it recklessly (in our opinion) made allegations against our client. We met with our client. We made a second trip to his home. We learned his story. Their story. The story of their marriage. And we told their story in a contested probate hearing. Our client didn’t want his wife to be conserved. After we told our story, the judge agreed and denied the State’s application.
Client was involunarily committed at a pyschiatric hospital. We assisted our client in a probable cause hearing. In less than 24 hours, we met with the client, reviewed the client’s records, and listened to the client’s story. We walked into a room with about a dozen healthcare professionals testifying against our client. We didn’t back down. After telling our client’s story, the judge ordered our client to be released on the ground their was no probable cause for the commitment.
We continue to open files in this area. We also recently closed one at a mediation for $300,000. We’ve put some cases in suit recently. Some more to come. And we are preparing for a jury trial in August. Very active on this front.
Closings have been coming fast and furiously. Allison takes great joy in helping folks by or sell their homes.
We just finished a reply brief in a very high profile appeal on a case that has gained national media attention. On seperate issues, Allison is handling 5 land use and tax appeals.
We obtained judgment against a contractor on behalf of a homeowner. The contractor did terrible work. There were also defects in the contract.
Those are just a few of the things we’ve been working on in recent weeks. We are grateful to our clients. We welcome new clients. Please let us know if we can help you. (860 471-8333).
