Divorce, child custody, alimony, child support and other family issues are difficult legal matters because of the level of emotion involved. Our lawyers have the unique skills and experience to help you resolve your legal problems without unnecessary stress and conflict.


We Are Trained In Collaborative Family Law


Plainville attorneys Barry L. Thompson and Michael V. Vollono are members of the Central Connecticut Collaborative Family Law Group and have received special training in collaborative law. Mr. Vollono is also a trained mediator, working as a Special Master in family matters more than a decade. Together with their partner, James D. Donovan, they have more than 100 years of combined legal experience in domestic relations.


This training in collaborative law allows us to help our clients negotiate solutions to their legal issues, rather than relying on a judge to decide. This strategy promotes open communication and respect for all family relationships. The resulting agreements are customized to meet each family’s needs, leading to a greater level of satisfaction at the end of the process.
