Longtime probate judge and retired Probate Court Administrator joins our litigation team
We are pleased to announce our expansion into the dispute resolution practice area. With a specific focus on probate and elder law dispute resolution, our firm now provides mediation and arbitration services. Paul Knierim, the recently retired Connecticut Probate Court Administrator, has joined the firm to lead this initiative.
During his eleven years as head of the probate court system, Paul was responsible for policy leadership and operation of all 54 of the state’s probate courts. He has been recognized for launching numerous initiatives which include the enactment of stronger judicial ethics code, expanding continuing education for judges and court staff, establishing better support and oversight for conservators and the complete overhaul of the rules of procedure that govern probate cases.
