Matthew G. McGoldrick, Esq
Mediator, Collaborative Divorce Attorney
Matthew joins the CT Mediation Center after having been in private practice since 2016 and specifically devoting his career to the practice of family and matrimonial law since 2018. Matthew received his Juris Doctorate from the Quinnipiac University School of Law after attending Villanova University for his undergraduate degree.
Matthew supports his clients with navigating the stressful ups and downs inherent in the divorce process, acknowledging the difficult decisions his clients will need to make while encouraging them to focus on the positive outcomes they are working towards. Matthew believes that the process works best when his clients are able to work toward mutual resolutions of their conflicts, specific to themselves and their family, rather than acquiescing to the uncertainty of result that comes with bringing their controversies in front of the court, regardless of whether the matter is being litigated or mediated.
Prior to law school, Matthew worked in various elementary and middle schools, assisting children who were integrating into mainstream classrooms by providing one-on-one support. Matthew is driven by the desire to ensure that the relationship between children and their parents remains intact during and after divorce.
Matthew was admitted to the Connecticut State Bar in 2013 and is a member of the Connecticut Bar Association. Matthew has earned his Collaborative divorce certificate from the Collaborative Practice Training Institute in March of 2021.
