With more than 50 years of combined experience, attorneys James T. Flaherty, Sandi B. Girolamo and Pamela M.

All of the lawyers have substantial trial and mediation experience. All three attorneys serve as special masters in Connecticut courts, where they facilitate negotiations between couples.

Team approach philosophy

Flaherty Legal Group implements a team approach to their practice. This method draws on the strengths of each team member and the collective knowledge of the group. Most cases are assigned to two attorneys and a paralegal who work together to resolve the issues in the most efficient, effective manner possible.


Each lawyer at the firm has been recognized by New England SuperLawyers® for his or her work in family law. Attorney James T. Flaherty was selected for the Super Lawyers honor in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. Attorney Sandi B.

The team at Flaherty Legal Group creates plans tailored to achieving the individual objectives of each client. These strategies can involve the use of alternative dispute resolution methods — including mediation, arbitration and cooperative techniques. At other times, the strategy may require the litigation experience that Attorneys Flaherty, Girolamo and Magnano bring to the courtroom.
