Ann K. Newman

Of Counsel
Avon, Connecticut

As an attorney, I have spent more than twenty years working with families in family law and child protection matters.  I believe in the processes of mediation and collaborative divorce. I am a certified divorce mediator and I am committed to helping couples find the best solutions for their families' needs and goals.  Mediation encourages couples to step out of their marriage in a private, dignified way and enables couples and children to accept and embrace a new definition of family.

Before joining the Law Offices of Attorney Donna Buttler, I was an associate at Budlong & Barrett, LLC and Freed Marcroft, LLC.  I am on the board of the Connecticut Council for Non Adversarial Divorce,  a member of the  Academy of Professional Family Mediators and the Connecticut Bar Association, and a practicing member of the Collaborative Divorce Team of  Connecticut
