Working Together For You

Divorce And Mediation


Too many people think of divorce as a battle, with a winner and a loser at the end of the process. At The Pickel Law Firm, LLC, we understand that not all divorces need to be contested while others require strong, zealous advocacy.

An amicable divorce can save you both time and money. Our lead attorney, Alan Scott Pickel, has an excellent reputation for his handling of mediated and collaborative divorces, often being hired by both parties to help them resolve their divorce and parenting issues. With this in mind, we work alongside couples to oversee amicable divorce resolutions whenever possible. Through divorce mediation services, our attorneys try to deliver an outcome that is favorable to both parties.

Our Stamford, CT office has been handling complex and high-asset divorce cases since 1990 for couples throughout Bridgeport, Darien, Greenwich, Norwalk, Stamford, Weston, Westport, Wilton, Easton, Fairfield, Monroe, Shelton, Stratford, Trumbull, CT, and the surrounding areas. Our experienced divorce attorneys know that the simplest approach can sometimes be the best. However, not all cases can be settled simply. You may be facing a highly difficult or contested divorce. Our strong legal team will fight for your best interests in court if your spouse cannot agree to a fair division of assets. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation.


Courts, judges and other lawyers regularly call on our lead attorney, Alan Scott Pickel, as a special master for his ability to assist couples in highly contested divorces. He is a Fact Finder, an Arbitrator and Attorney Trial Referee who can help with the following issues and more:

Dividing property

Property can be a sticking point in any divorce. It’s only natural that both parties share sentimental attachment to a favorite vacation home or a marital residence, especially if they have spent years or decades owning and improving the property. We can guide you and protect your interests.

Who gets the house?

Depending on your situation, there might have already been a decision based on who gets your home. But do you know how to account for upkeep costs, property taxes and other expenses when exchanging other assets for a house? We can help.

Shared retirement accounts and business assets

You’ve worked hard and paid into a retirement account for years, and now it has come up in divorce proceedings. Our firm can help determine worth and how best to handle long-term accounts such as 401(k), IRA and Roth IRA accounts. We have experience with difficult asset division and dividing business assets, stock options, etc.

Spousal support/alimony

This can be the most difficult of financial issues. Our team of attorneys has years of experience in protecting both spouses when it comes to this sensitive issue of spousal support/alimony. Our attorneys can usually help reach a reasonable compromise that works for both parties, but we are always prepared to go to battle if your spouse is being unreasonable.

Child support

Raising children takes time and money. Connecticut has child support guidelines that apply to most situations but not all cases. Now that you and your partner are not sharing resources, our lawyers can help guide you in forming an agreement that helps maintain the best interests of your children.

These are just some of the questions we can address in your divorce. If you’re expecting a complicated divorce, talk to us. Our decades of experience will go to work to make sure you’re treated fairly. Call us today to schedule a consultation at 203-348-4100 or send an email at your earliest convenience.
