Prenup Agreement
I hired Brandon to prepare a prenuptial agreement for me earlier this year prior to my wedding. He took what could have been an awkward experience for me and my fiancee, and instead made it a really comfortable and easy process. He emphasized to me that it was just our chance to plan our marriage and create our own rules rather than be bound by CT laws. He was really detail-oriented in his contract wording, considering all the scenarios that could come up over a short or long marriage, and thoroughly explained the legal reasoning behind everything. I'd highly recommend Brandon for any family law or contract needs.

Appellate Practice
Attorney Fontaine is a patient, incredibly studied, kind and smart man. He provided invaluable help in my analysis of whether or not a certain Appellate Supreme Court matter was worth the time and expense, and what some of the key factual factors in the case are; what some of the unknown areas are. He is caring, articulate, and has the natural motive to be helpful and practical. Excellent responsiveness and communication. A+

Excellent
Brandon Fontaine worked with me on a slip and fall accident that caused me almost two years of recovery and medical expenses. He was an excellent communicator, honest and relatable. Brandon saw that I was taken care of and he didn't stop working until I was fairly compensated. I highly reccomend Brandon Fontaine to anyone seeking legal help.
