Law firm McCarter & English, LLP is pleased to announce that attorney Heidi E. Opinsky has joined the firm as a partner. She will split her time between the firm’s Stamford, CT and New York City offices. With more than 27 years of experience in family law matters, Opinsky will focus on counseling New York and Connecticut state residents in resolving their family law, divorce, alimony, child support, domestic violence and property law issues.
“We are committed to remaining a full-service law firm throughout our geography, which means having the capacity to address our clients’ personal and business needs with equal expertise,” said Firmwide Managing Partner Stephen M. Vajtay, Jr. “Bringing Heidi on board fills an important private clients role in our New York-Connecticut market that is entirely consistent with our regional strategy.”
Opinsky’s family law services and experience range from uncontested and amicable divorces and legal separations to complex, high-net worth and highly disputed matters. A seasoned trial attorney, she has litigated dozens of cases in court and is skilled both in facilitating agreements between separating and divorcing spouses and fighting for her clients' maintenance, alimony, child support, custody, visitation and property rights in court. Additionally, she serves as an advocate for clients when they confront issues related to domestic violence, including assaults and spousal abuse, and helps handle matters with child protective services.
Prior to joining McCarter & English, Opinsky was a Family Law partner at Fox Rothschild LLP in Connecticut and New York. She also served as Guardian Ad Litem and Special Attorney in the Supreme Court of Westchester County.
