In 2010, she was named, along with four other attorneys, in the Rising Stars list in Connecticut Family Law by the Connecticut Bar Association's Family Law Section. One judge even praised her for her conduct after a family law trial ended, stating that all family law attorneys should act as she did.

Strategic, client goal focused attorney
Sandi took on my chaotic, highly contested case 5 years in. She asked clear concise questions about what goals were most important to me, and the outcome I was hoping for. With that in mind she was able to sort through the five years of ongoing litigation, and strategically re-focus case to where my goals could be achieved. Her on going advice and attention to not only my case, but also my feelings around it, have helped me re-shape my actions, and thinking around the case to the point where my goals are bearing tangable fruit. Her care for the welfare of both my children and me, her organizational skills, her receptive, personable, avid, purposeful, and strategic mind and personality, have been invaluable. She has gone above and beyond.

Review Attorney Sandi Girolamo
I hired Sandi Girolamo to take over a very difficult and lengthy divorce settlement. She was incredibly thorough in making sure I received the best outcomes for me and my children. She approached everything with sound advice. Sandi listened to my personal situation while guiding me in the right direction through this emotional time. There was never a detail missed when we needed to appear in court. She is a strong, capable attorney who seems to be well respected in the community.

Very slow.
This office seems to give priority to the contentious (and therefore more profitable) cases. Routine divorces, where the parties are getting along, are left on the back burner. We were put off several times and ended up waiting several months for what should have been routine documents.
