    Dec 27 2018 Attorney Paul McConnell and his team are down to earth and very patient. They listened to my legal concerns and issues and worked on my case with integrity. They represented my kids and I in a post divorce legal disagreement which was very challenging. Paul worked with respect and professionalism against an unprofessional and unethical attorney on the opposing counsel. Amazing family Attorney and practice. Highly recommended

    Dec 01 2017 A lawyer that will not let you down. Look no further I hired Paul McConnel while going through unpleasant custody dispute. When I spoke to Paul first time about my case I was impressed with the calm knowledge of a Attny Paul He was compassionate and understanding explaining the process. Attny Jessica Wilson was assigned to my case. The family court process was onerous and confusing She could not only bring my situation to a satisfactory resolution, but he was able to calm my fears and keep me sane along the way. Jessica is warm and reassuring and compassionate quick to respond to my calls and emails, she is incredibly knowledgeable and amazing at what she does. Paul McConnel firm is exactly who you want in your corner and I can’t thank Paul /Jessica enough. They delivered on their promises. I was very happy with the outcome and thankful I chose his firm. I would highly recommend him.
  • Justin Petano

    Sep 15 2016 I highly recommend Jessica Wilson at the McConnell Family Law Group. From our first meeting, Jessica was prompt, incredibly knowledgeable, and very professional. I expected a very chaotic and tumultuous divorce process, but it was quite the opposite. Jessica immediately put me at ease, explaining the overall divorce process, as well as the finer details that would require attention in order to achieve a favorable outcome. Jessica kept me involved from the beginning to the end of my divorce process, was very timely with responding to any of my inquiries, and was very enjoyable to work with! I am very happy with the final resolution of my divorce, and I highly recommend Jessica to anyone looking for the same!!!

  • Tom Brown

    Jun 05 2016 Attorney McConnell represented me in a divorce case in Connecticut. He acted very professional and was extremely helpful in finalizing a settlement that I was happy with. He worked tirelessly throughout the proceedings as I am living overseas in Kuwait as an Educator and was not able to meet with him face to face or attend any hearings. He was always available to answer questions, provide updates and information regarding my case and provide excellent advice. I highly recommend Attorney McConnell as you will receive a person with professional knowledge and experience, a person with high integrity, a person who will work for you and with you to attain an outcome that you will be satisfied with. Lastly, Attorney McConnell was very fair with charging me for his services and did his best to always make sure costs were kept to a minimum when he could. I recommend Attorney McConnell for his competence in law and professionalism.
  • Laura Callaway

    Mar 15 2016 I have been divorced three years and have been in constant conflict with my ex-husband around our parenting schedule. He is controlling and difficult. Attorney McConnell really listened to me and understood the challenges I face on a daily basis. He offered advice that was in my best interest and included options outside of expensive litigation. I appreciated Paul's direct and honest approach and have no hesitation recommending him to others facing similar circumstances.
