Kristen has fished for a living.  Her Dad was jealous.

She’s also lived in a treehouse. Yes, an actual treehouse. Kristen is extraordinary.

When Kristen and Meghan were considering purchasing Freed Marcroft’s home base, Meghan walked around trying to figure out where they’d construct all the walls needed to make traditional lawyers’ offices. Kristen listened to Meghan go on about building walls. Then she turned to Meghan and said, “I thought we wanted to design a firm that was different.  If it’s going to be different, then it has to look different.” Kristen walked Meghan around the office and pointed out the walls that needed to be torn down. Kristen later took down those walls herself. With a sledgehammer.

Our open, collaborative workspace design with private conference rooms that are both formal and intimate is Kristen’s concept. When you enter our office, you are seeing Kristen’s work product on display.

If you like our office, you’ll love the solutions Kristen will find to your legal problems.

Kristen is a graduate of the Quinnipiac University School of Law and the Honors Program at the University of Connecticut, and also studied Irish, European, international and comparative law at Trinity College in Dublin. She is a founding executive board member of the Connecticut Bar Association’s LGBT Section. In 2013, she was a panelist at the Connecticut Bar Association symposium “Supreme Change: The Legal Landscape After Windsor,” speaking on the practical implications of the Windsor decision on LGBT clients in practice areas including immigration, family law, tax, and estate planning.

Kristen is an original board member of Night Fall.  She devotes the majority of her pro bono legal work to local arts organizations.

She is a Connecticut attorney.  And office designer.

Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told, I’m with you kid. Let’s go.
