Testimonials

“The attorneys at Broder Orland Murray & DeMattie LLC are top notch lawyers as well as terrific people. I have worked with Carole Orland, Eric Broder, Sarah Murray, and Chris DeMattie on a number of matters in the Connecticut Supreme and Appellate Courts. Across the board, their preparation and presentation of matrimonial cases are among the best I have ever seen. They care about their clients and, while not afraid to fight the fight, take a practical, cost sensitive approach to what is often an emotionally driven experience. I cannot recommend them more highly!”

[From Esteemed Appellate Counsel]

“Excellent legal representation and professionals of the highest integrity. Carole Orland represented me in an extremely complicated, contentious and difficult case. They provided sound strategic advice, thorough preparation at every turn, aggressiveness when needed yet ability to see opportunities for compromise, an accurate read of situations borne of experience, and expertise in complicated financial matters. They are professionals of the highest order and people whom I regard with tremendous respect.”

[From a Current Client]

“Attorney Broder handled my case professionally, with understanding and to a desirable outcome. Through a very difficult time, Attorney Broder’s experience, knowledge and advice were a mitigating and reassuring factor. His knowledge of the divorce process and skilled negotiating were trumped only by his concern for the children involved, invaluable to say the least. Respected by both sides of the table, Attorney Broder was highly recommended to me by several fellow lawyers as well as by individuals who he had represented – I similarly endorse him without hesitation.”

[From a Former Client]

“Dear Eric…I am very grateful to you. I am impressed with you and appreciate your expertise throughout a process I had no real prior experience with…I know that you both got the best deal for me that probably I could hope to get. I can’t thank you enough…I look forward to recommending you as I have all along this process-you are a total gentleman attorney. I chose you because I feel you are kind and care about ethics in these situations…”

[From a Former Client]

“Chris: I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work these past 6 months, and especially the last 2 weeks. I feel a huge sense of relief today for the first time in nearly 2 years. I just hope we can all move forward peacefully and [my spouse] gets stability back into his life. You talked me off several ledges and listened to my endless ramble through anger, fear and tears. THANK YOU!”

[From a Former Client]

“Sarah: Just wanted to say thanks again for your help yesterday. I am convinced that we would not have prevailed in obtaining the contempt citation if you had not questioned [XXX] on paragraph 18 at the uncontested. And given [the judge’s] critique of the way it was drafted, this was especially important. Well done. It raises the bar overall for indirect civil contempt citations.”

[From a Former Client]

“Chris: I want to take this time to express my sincerest thanks for your hard work, dedication and diligence on representing me at the divorce trial this week! Although the process is grueling, stressful and so full of gaps, I believe your firm did a phenomenal job for me. No doubt our side out-performed [the opposing side] and I’m confident we did everything we could to hopefully influence [the Court] to decide the case in my favor. We will see, but please know that I am extremely pleased with your skill and performance!”
