  • Mark Daniel Sherman

    Carole and her team of attorneys are one of the best full-service family law firms in the State. Divorce trials can be overwhelming to some firms, but I have seen Carole and her team try the most complicated and financially intricate divorce cases to verdict with outstanding results. She is also skilled and compassionate in resolving and litigating post-dissolution matters in Westport, Greenwich and Stamford Connecticut. I highly recommend Carole Orland and the Broder & Orland law firm.
