About Dyan

Learn Dyan’s areas of practice.

Dyan M. Kozaczka is a partner at Siegel, Colin & Kaufman, PC.  She is known for her persistence, attention to detail and pragmatic approach to cases. She represents individuals in all areas of family law, including divorce, alimony, child support, property division, mediation and post-judgment modifications and contempt. Dyan has extensive experience working on highly complex and sophisticated cases. She often collaborates with forensic accountants to analyze interests in private equity funds, professional practices, and privately held business interests to determine values for equitable distribution.

In addition, Dyan has experience resolving difficult custody disputes. Dyan appreciates that every client and case is different and prepares a strategy to achieve each individual client’s particular goals, while also considering the emotional impact of divorce.

Dyan has considerable experience in dealing with both the defense of, and attacks on, prenuptial agreements.  In this sophisticated niche of the law, Dyan’s ability to formulate strategies, work closely with experts, review financial disclosures, trace assets, assess claims of unconscionability and make cogent arguments as to the specifics of statutory considerations, all serve the interests of clients who have, or are considering entering into, prenuptial agreements.

Before choosing to focus her practice solely on matrimonial law, Dyan litigated complex commercial litigation cases at the trial court, argued before the Appellate court, and represented institutional and individual clients in bankruptcy proceedings.

Dyan has been nominated by her peers for recognition by “Connecticut Super Lawyers” as a “Rising Star” each year in the area of family law since 2014. In 2016, she was also selected as a “40 Under 40” recipient by Fairfield County Business Journal, an honor which recognizes influential young leaders in the community.

Active in the community, Dyan is a volunteer in Special Olympics of Connecticut, where she often serves as a volunteer and Unified Sports Partner.

Exceptional and professional
Dyan represented me in my divorce and made a really difficult process manageable. She was aggressive when necessary, but also provided advice to assist in reducing the conflict which was best for my family and children. She was always available to talk or respond to emails. I am very pleased that I hired Dyan to assist with my divorce and while I hope I will never need her services again, I recommend that anyone going through this difficult process hire her. She will stand up for you!

A lawyer who returns phone calls!
Dyan was excellent during my bankruptcy case and kept me informed throughout the entire process. My case was more difficult than usual, as I am self-employed. Dyan explained all the possible consequences of bankruptcy and was well prepared when we met with the trustee. Without a single reservation, I would recommend Dyan for anyone considering filing for bankruptcy or for any other legal matter.
