Divorce & Family Law Westport, CT

The outcome of a divorce or other family law matter will have an immeasurable impact on your life. An experienced lawyer can be instrumental in achieving your objectives and helping you move forward on favorable terms. It is critical to enlist the services of legal counsel who is smart, experienced, dynamic and strategic at the earliest opportunity.

At BRODER & ORLAND LLC, our Westport and Greenwich-based law firm concentrates exclusively on family law, including matrimonial law and divorce. Our attorneys deftly grasp the numerous issues at stake in any family law matter and will utilize our extensive experience to help our clients navigate the legal process.

Our Philosophy

Exceptional legal representation and the highest levels of client service form the hallmarks of our practice. As one of the largest family law firms in Connecticut, we have the experience and resources to address the full range of family law matters. Our founding partners, Eric J. Broder and Carole Topol Orland, offer more than a half-century of legal experience. Eric and Carole are joined by a number of excellent partners, associate attorneys, and paralegals. Whenever applicable, we work with highly qualified experts to support our clients’ cases.

In every family law matter — whether involving a prenuptial agreement, divorce, alimony, child support, child custody, visitation and parenting plans, business valuation, property division or a post-judgment matter — our lawyers are sensitive to each client’s emotional and financial needs. We are committed to resolving each case efficiently and effectively. When appropriate, we are strong and assertive advocates, providing vigorous representation to our clients. In cases that require a more conciliatory approach, we often seek a resolution through negotiation or mediation. Our overarching objective in each matter is to meet our client’s specific needs.

Divorce in Connecticut

We provide skilled, experienced and individually suited legal representation that is focused on achieving optimal results for our clients. Our attorneys are experienced in the trial and settlement of a wide range of divorce cases, including high net worth cases involving complex financial and tax issues.

Post-Judgment Issues

In the years following your divorce, your life will change substantially. A divorce agreement or parenting plan that was sensible at the time of your divorce may no longer reflect the realities of your life. In these situations, it may be necessary to formally modify your divorce agreement or parenting plan.

Child Support & Custody

Child support is potentially a major issue in any divorce, both for the parent who expects to pay child support and for the parent who expects to receive it. The amount of child support you can expect to receive or pay will have a meaningful impact on your finances in the years following your divorce.

Hi Carole,

I hope this finds you well. I’m happy to hear your business is growing and that you moved into new offices…I sing your praises all the time and have given your name to a number of people. You were so helpful to me at a stressful time in my life. I’ll forever be grateful.

Thank you.

Attorney Broder handled my case professionally, with understanding and to a desirable outcome...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.


You’ve been a great teammate these past few months. I am grateful for all you’ve done- I know it hasn’t been easy. Thankful for the unyielding support.

In the most unfortunate and painful circumstances, Eric Broder (and his entire firm, from receptionists to paralegals to partners) did an amazing job-not only in securing a great settlement, but...was incredibly patient, sensitive, and understanding of intense emotions and the big picture throughout the entire process...While one hopes his services are never needed, if they ever should be, you will be in the best hands!
