My case has been one of the longest and most “ complicated” of the Stamford / Now New Haven system. Very unfortunately I started with a mediocre ineffective lawyer and then had a lawyer who only cared about racking up fees, never even filed for sole custody which I was ultimately granted during long protracted trial which Attorney #3 who was excellent, championed for with me and other witnesses. Chalumeau is the best family lawyer I’ve experienced personally and observed on other cases at court - in a holistic sense. She is excellent both in and out of court. Sometimes a great in court litigator is terribly uncommunicative outside of court or can’t cant admin and documents to a high standard level. Chalumeau has good support staff, and really shines in that she truly cares about her clients and what is the best outcome for children involved. She’s a straight shooter, fair, honest, does not rack fees up in the least, is respectful of clients needs and efficiencies.
There are only a few others I’d highly recommend- but if you’re thinking to hire Chalumeau, you’re in very expert, sharp, caring hands.
