Our firm’s mission is to listen carefully to our clients so that we may effectively represent them. At Siegel & Kaufman, P.C., we offer client-centered representation for those who are facing sophisticated and complex family law and divorce-related issues in Connecticut.

Our philosophy is that our job is not to tell you what you want to hear; rather, it is to hear what you need from us, advise you accordingly and then effectively and efficiently achieve that result.

Siegel & Kaufman, P.C., is comprised of five attorneys who all focus on family law and divorce, setting us apart from other Fairfield County firms. Our attorneys have more than 90 combined years of experience in this very specialized and contentious field of law.

We apply our attention to detail and well-honed skills to the goal of getting results that fit your very personal needs. Our emphasis is on settlement, which gives you control and privacy and allows attention to the smallest detail. We are experienced in mediation, arbitration, collaborative law, and old-fashioned, sensible negotiation to protect you, your assets and your privacy.

We firmly believe it is best to settle a case whenever possible, but not every case can settle. Our team of seasoned attorneys is always prepared to go into a courtroom and litigate the best possible outcome in your case.

Our firm was founded as the legacy of a respected local family law firm, Fitzmaurice and Siegel. Following in the well-known footsteps of those before us, we offer comprehensive legal representation in all types of family law and divorce matters for our clients, many of whom have a high net worth and sophisticated financial and family issues.

Our award-winning attorneys are recognized for their superior skill levels and commitment to matrimonial and family law. Partners Frederic J. Siegel and Ross Kaufman have been selected for inclusion in Connecticut Super Lawyers by Super Lawyers Magazine over a number of years.
