I would definitely recommend Eric to anyone who has to go through the Divorce process or has a post-judgment matter. I have used Eric for both, and was extremely satisfied with my representation and the counsel I received. He has a truly unique perspective and approach as a divorce attorney. Unlike most divorce lawyers who seem to (in a self-serving and destructive way) enjoy pouring gas on the flames and engage in pointless conflict, arguments and litigation with the other party (and rack up unnecessary fees), Eric understands the true emotional, financial and experiential 'cost' of divorce, and his primary interest is to find the best path to resolution and closure so you can move on and rebuild your life constructively. That said, if necessary, he'll advocate firmly and effectively to protect your interests, position and well-being. He is an excellent problem solver who comes up with creative and constructive solutions to complex problems. He has a bias toward non-adversarial conflict resolution, and will do everything in his power to get you a peaceful, cooperative and speedy resolution...yet will always stand up for your position and rights as necessary. Perhaps the greatest compliment I ever heard about Eric was when the judge in my matter voluntarily praised me for my choice of counsel and said I "could not have found better representation." There are a lot of sharks in the divorce waters -- Eric is NOT one of them -- he's a 'life saver' boat.

The choice to leave my marriage of almost 17 years and do life differently was not easy……divorce is NEVER easy. But from the very first meeting with Eric I knew I was going to be guided by a professional and highly competent attorney. Eric was always rational, always compassionate, and always had MY back in negotiating with a very difficult soon-to-be ex-husband.
Eric’s main focus was always that of the best interest of my children and that I was taken care of in a fair way. When I would want to throw in the towel, Eric was there to talk me off the ledge. The office is professional, elegant and convenient. His staff was friendly and highly skilled in managing my case.
But for the guidance of Eric through my divorce process, the whirlwind and aftermath of divorce would have really knocked me down. I had a mentally unstable and angry husband, a special needs child, my own health issues AND I wanted to move out of state so I could be near my family for support to get my life back on track. We were able to accomplish all of my goals in negotiating what I felt was a fair settlement.
As I stand here now 18 months after the judge stamped my divorce decree, the dust has settled and my life has never been more full and fulfilling. My girls and I are healthy and happy and safe......and I owe a lot of that to my friend and divorce attorney, Eric Posmantier.

I was completely satisfied and grateful for the way in which Eric handled my divorce proceeding. I had the facts on my side, but was in a very difficult situation, and Eric and his staff handled the discovery and mediation with great skill, missing nothing and securing every advantage for me in what turned out to be a very favorable decision by the court. He was constantly in touch and available, making sure I had whatever guidance I needed during a very difficult time. I couldn't recommend his services more highly.

I can't thank attorney Eric Posmantier enough for his help during a very difficult time in my life. Eric's knowledge and experience of the law eased my stress and anxiety. His personal and approachable demeanor made me feel comfortable and not so overwhelmed. He took a genuine interest in the well being of my three daughters and his attention to details has secured us in the future. Throughout the entire process I was always well informed, my phone calls promptly returned and all my questions and concerns were addressed. Eric was patient and understanding to my difficult and often frustrating situation. He was able to remain calm and focused during times that most would not. Thank you Eric for your outstanding job in representing me in my divorce. It was truly a pleasure working with you!

We could not have made a better selection in choosing Mr. Posmantier as our mediator. His ability to keep us focused on the important issues helped us from getting bogged down during the painful process of dissolving our marriage. He was fair, honest, compassionate, kind, and no non-sense when it was necessary. He ALWAYS kept our children and their best interest his primary focus, and was able to guide us in doing the same. He also maintained professionalism at all times, but still expressed empathy and encouraged us to see the big picture and each others perspective, so that we could work through issues without unnecessary conflict. I would highly recommend him. He was truly outstanding!

I am a lawyer, and I cannot recommend Eric Posmantier enough. He kept me informed, supported me and always tried to help me save money. He was an amazing advocate, who held my hand behind the scenes. The only reason I made it through the divorce with my head held high was because of Eric and his superior team!

I would highly recommend Eric Posmantier as a lawyer if you are about to enter into the very stressful and painful world of divorce. Lawyers can generally have a bad reputation, especially divorce lawyers. However, my experience with Eric was completely opposite of what people say about divorce lawyers. Professionally Eric conducts himself with a high level of integrity and respect for the law.
Throughout the divorce process, there are many decisions that have to be made. My experience with Eric was that he would detail the possible consequences of your decision. Reviewing the possible outcome and costs associated with it were always a huge consideration for Eric.
Highly knowledgeable, compassionate, honest, trust worthy….these are all words that I would use to describe Eric. I consider myself very fortunate that I choose Eric as my lawyer to represent my interests in my divorce. Each day, Eric made a very hard time in life a bit more pleasant.

Efficient with his time, a quicker study than he let's on at times.
Great negotiator, personable enough.
I know that Eric got me very great results, and kept me from enduring a much longer, and much more expensive Court ordeal.

Eric represented me in a post divorce matter regarding unpaid alimony due me. Needless to say, we were dealing with a very contentious, obstructive and acrimonious situation. I was looking for a highly skilled and strong divorce attorney with a collaborative style to work with me, on my behalf. Eric demonstrated that at the onset.
From our first meeting and throughout the legal process, Eric provided me with options to consider and evaluate in order to make informed decisions. He is extremely knowledgeable, methodical, organized and resourceful in his approach without escalating the situation. I always felt confident and safe that my best interest was at hand. He was punctual and responsive to my calls and email – he's an excellent communicator with great follow-up!
My experience has been that Eric genuinely cares about his clients. That came through to me by the way he conducted himself with integrity and professionalism and I was treated with compassion, respect and fairness. I highly recommend Eric!

Attorney Posmantier handled my case not only with the utmost professionalism, but also in a way that shows that his main concern is doing right by his clients. He explained my options clearly and calmly and acted both as my advocate and my advisor. During difficult moments in the process it became clear to me that he cares not for just the case, but for the person. He kept me fully informed at all times, and explained to me the rationale for both his tactical and strategic advice. He nevertheless made it clear that the decisions were, ultimately mine to make. He is very knowledgeable about both legal theory and case divorce law in Connecticut, but he was very forthright in suggesting when we should seek advice on esoteric tax matters from other experts. He was always very responsive and timely in answering my questions and concerns. Most importantly, he kept his focus on bringing the ordeal to an end, even when it would have been in his financial interest to let it drag on.
