Work 113 Keeler Avenue Bridgeport, CT 06606 Phone: 203 373 1381 Work Fax: 203 373 1382
Biography:
Attorney Brienes practices exclusively in the areas of Divorce Mediation, Martial Mediation and Collaborative Divorce/ He believes that the traditional war model of litigating family matters contributes little to the ability of formers spouses to cooperated and communicated successfully in resolving issues that arise both during and after the divorce. Mediation and Collaboration help divorcing spouses identify their interests and goals. That knowledge gives them the resources to negotiate interest-based solutions with mutual respect and without resorting to threats of "bottom lines" and "deal-breakers." Interest-based bargaining, which is the basis of mediation agreements, is especially valuable when there are children, who are always affected by divorce. Interest-based bargaining is the key to successful negotiation because it encourages each spouse to care about the other spouse's outcome. When that occurs, post-divorce disputes can be mediated respectfully, without court intervention. And the children benefit by having parents who know how to resolve their disputes respectfully.

Biography:
Since he graduated cum laude from Boston College Law School in 1984, Neil Sutton has tried dozens of cases, involving issues from professional malpractice and products liability to fall-downs and motor vehicle collisions. His most significant success was a jury verdict in favor of the estate and widow of a plumber who was buried alive in a dangerous and unprotected trench. Under a rarely-used theory of law, a commercial property management company was held legally responsible for failing to make sure that precautions were taken to make the trench safe for workers to use. Neil is a cum laude graduate of The University of Pennsylvania. He has lectured on pharmacist malpractice, motor vehicle trials, evidence, and uninsured motorist law, served on the faculty of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy, and co-authorized articles on the law of evidence.
