Attorney Veronica E. Reich has been engaged in the practice of law focusing on all aspects of family litigation for 38 years. For high net worth and lower income families alike, Attorney Reich recognizes that the most personal issues, marriage, divorce, children and finances, all must be handled with the highest degree of discretion, skill and compassion. In addition to divorce and post judgment matters, Attorney Reich is often chosen by counsel/appointed by the Court as a Guardian Ad Litem/Attorney for the Minor Child, and considers her work as a child advocate to be of paramount importance.

Attorney Reich serves as Special Master at the Regional Family Trial Docket in Middletown, where the most contentious custody matters from all over the State are tried. Attorney Reich also donates her time by serving as a Special Master in various Judicial Districts in Connecticut, assisting other attorneys to reach negotiated resolutions in divorce litigation. She has also conducted presentations at various continuing legal education seminars on the best interests of children, and has been a guest lecturer at graduate level courses at a local university. An active member of the family law sections of the Fairfield County Bar Association and the Bridgeport Bar Association, she is also a member of the Connecticut Bar Association, American Bar Association and is admitted to all Courts in the State of Connecticut and to the United States District Court in Connecticut.
