Her trial experience includes a six-day post-judgment custody trial at the Regional Family Trial Docket and a nine-day dissolution of marriage trial in the Hartford Superior Court. One judge commented at the end of a trial that Attorney Girolamo “exhibited the very best in family lawyers. She presented her case and examined witnesses in a way consistent with the rules of evidence, in a logical manner, and in a way that I think all family lawyers should emulate, and that is vigorously defending her client’s rights but not becoming so emotionally involved in the case that you lost sight of the ultimate goal.”
