Wayne D. Effron, P.C. is one of the prominent matrimonial law firms in this state. 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 addressing issues such as child custody, business and property valuation, prenuptial and postmarital agreements, trusts and hidden assets.

Because Wayne D. Effron, P.C. focuses exclusively on family law matters, our attorneys are well versed in all aspects of family law casework and dispute resolution, from uncontested cases to the most complex litigation. We are always prepared to work in a civil and amicable manner toward a beneficial and appropriate resolution for our clients, achieved with minimum distress and maximum value.

We deliberately keep our caseload small so that we can devote the necessary time and attention to each matter. While we settle many more cases than we take to trial, our lawyers are more than capable in the courtroom. 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.

“Why do I need a good trial lawyer to represent me in my divorce? I want to settle my case.” In the first place, only lawyers who try cases and appear regularly in court have knowledge of how local judges are ruling in cases like yours. Since a fair settlement approximates what a judge is likely to order if the case were tried, knowledge of the current court environment is essential to settling a case fairly. Secondly, if your spouse’s lawyer knows that your attorney knows his way around the courtroom, he will be far less likely to try to bully, intimidate or lowball you in settlement negotiations. Many lawyers are afraid to try a case, especially a complicated one. We have no such fear. That is well known.

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. We do not advertise. We do no marketing. We do not network or solicit referrals from other lawyers. 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. Many family lawyers have come and gone in Greenwich during the last thirty-nine years. We’re still here and thriving.

You will get only one opportunity to do your divorce. You should pick the best lawyer– not the best salesperson– to do it. After their divorces, people who have used other attorneys often ask us if there is anything we can do to change the result. Generally there is not. These people tell us they regret not having retained our office in the first place. It is important you hire the right lawyer the first time.

Distinguished among our peers, the Law Offices of Wayne D. Effron, P.C. is listed in the Martindale-Hubbell Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, a recognition reserved for firms whose reputations have attained the highest levels of professional excellence, skill and integrity. Our professional satisfaction comes solely from achieving favorable results for our clients.
