About Michelle

Learn Michelle’s areas of practice.

My practice focuses primarily on the area of family law; including divorce, custody, and children’s probate court matters. I also handle real estate and business law matters. I earned a degree in Economics from the University of Connecticut and attended Roger Williams University School of Law, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude. After law school, I spent time as a clerk in the Connecticut Superior Court before  joining a small general practice law firm where I spent nearly 10 years before opening my practice. I am a member of the Connecticut and Windham County Bar Associations. I am a past president of the Willimantic Rotary Club, and I currently serve on the board of the Northeast Connecticut Chamber of Commerce and as Chair of the Brooklyn Planning and Zoning Commission. I am an animal lover and an avid horsewoman, enjoying dressage and my American Quarter Horse.

Excellent attorney!
We consulted Michelle for child custody and financial concerns. We came to her with a lot of questions, and she was able to address each and every one. She really knows her stuff! She was excellent in court and was able to help us get what we needed. She is straightforward, very intelligent, and thorough. Afterwards, we had some additional questions and concerns, and she met with us and steered us down the right path. We completely recommend Michelle and will definitely go back to her if we need additional legal help.

Speedy Proffesional Help
Attorney Sigfridson has helped my family establish our wills and secure our estate's and children's security. She has also been very helpful and quick with my business needs of setting up a new LLC and closing on a commercial building. I would absolutely recommend attorney Sigfridson when seeking council in CT.

Divorce
I hired Michelle on a recommendation from a friend who went through a very difficult divorce. I found her services to be very professional and her demeanor through the entire process made it as painless as a divorce could be. I was impressed enough that Michelle is also my real estate lawyer of choice. I highly recommend her.
Response from Michelle Sigfridson October 18, 2017

Abandoned me as a client
Michelle was working for Prue law and in the middle of my child support case she stopped contacting me at all. I was notified that without notice to me she had left their law group and abandoned my case after taking a 2100$ retainer. She never processed any of the paperwork with CT and left me stranded with the majority of my retainer used up. Prune law gave back what wasn’t used however it was beyond unprofessional of Michelle.

Hi Judah, I am glad that you reached out to me about your dissatisfaction. I can understand why you would be upset when it doesn't feel like anything was accomplished with your case. I was under the (I now know mistaken) impression that you were planning to hire alternate counsel. That should have been handled better. Unfortunately, as I explained to you on the phone, while I was working for a law firm, my files were the property of that firm, so unfortunately I have no control over things like what amount is refunded to you. As you see, I now run my own firm, where client's needs will always come first. If you would like any guidance or assistance in getting your matter resolved I would be happy to help. Michelle

Very professional in person
When meeting with Michelle Figfridson she is very on point then this Attorney never returned phone calls. Tried emails with no response. This happened for weeks. Could not be bothered with my case. Did not update information. She also billed hours for work not done.
Response from Michelle Sigfridson October 28, 2019
Heather, I'm sorry to hear that the services you received did not meet your expectations. As you can see from my Avvo profile, my contact information has recently changed. I would encourage you to reach out if you would like to discuss any of this further. Thank you for your feedback.
