We are one of Connecticut's leading boutique family law firms

Wayne D. Effron, P.C. is one of Connecticut’s prominent matrimonial law firms. For almost forty years we have litigated some of the most complex and important cases in the field of Connecticut family law. We represent individuals in high net worth matters across a broad spectrum of industries and professions. We have tried multiple cases involving issues such as child custody, business and property valuation, premarital and postnuptial agreements, trusts and hidden assets.

Let us put our expertise to work for you.

Our Advantage

We deliberately keep our caseload small so that we can devote the necessary time and attention to each matter. Our lawyers are skilled negotiators who settle many more cases than we take to trial. However, when we do enter the courtroom for litigation, we shine. A wise judge once said that the best way to settle a case is to prepare it for trial. We employ that adage. We work as hard as any family lawyers in this state. We will not be outworked by the other side.

Our Success

Success That Speaks for Itself

We are proud that virtually all our clients are referred by others we have represented. In fact, many times we are recommended by the spouse of the person who employed us. Our clients come to us because we have successfully represented their friends or other members of the Fairfield County community. The Greenwich citizenry is demanding of its professionals. Our organization has been in Greenwich since 1979, longer than any other matrimonial law firm. The reason we have been successful this long in this exacting market is because we deliver excellent service and results.
