WESTPORT, Conn., Sept. 12, 2016 — Thomas Parrino has been selected an America’s Top 100 Attorneys Lifetime Achievement member for Connecticut. His selection is the result of a careful screening process through third-party research and statistical analysis based on a broad array of criteria, including professional experience, lifetime achievements, significant case results, peer reputation and community impact. Less than one-half percent of active attorneys in the United States will receive this honor.
Parrino, a principal and co-founder of Nusbaum & Parrino P.C., based in Westport, has been practicing family law for more than 27 years handling some of the most intricate and high-asset family law litigation in Connecticut. Considered a top attorney in his field, Parrino is a dynamic negotiator and litigator. He represents clients in all areas of family law, including divorce, alimony, child support, property division and child custody. In 2013, Parrino earned the designation Lawyer of the Year as selected by peer recognition and published by Best Lawyers.
Only 100 attorneys in each state* will ever be selected for lifetime membership among America’s Top 100 Attorneys. This lifetime honor is not given once a year, or once every 10 years, but is truly once-in-a-lifetime. Once all 100 attorneys have been selected for a specific state’s lifetime membership, the selection process will be closed and no more attorneys will be eligible for lifetime membership among America’s Top 100 Attorneys in that state until an existing member passes away, retires from active practice, moves out of state or is otherwise unable to actively practice law.
Candidates for membership are initially identified through third-party research or peer nominations by other elite attorneys in the community. Once a candidate is identified, they are carefully screened through third-party research and analysis involving proprietary algorithms applying multi-criteria decision making methods to create a Pareto efficiency frontier. These algorithms assess a broad array of criteria and data for each candidate. See Selection Methodology for more information about the selection process.
Parrino is a Fellow and past president of the Connecticut Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. He serves on the Connecticut Chapter’s Examining Committee and on its Appellate Rules Committee. In addition, he serves as a member of Connecticut’s Family Law Commission, which is composed of Connecticut Superior Court Judges and select Connecticut attorneys who have been invited to serve as members.
The Connecticut Family Law Commission’s purpose is to review Connecticut’s Rules of Court, decisional law and legislation that apply to family law; and to craft proposed reforms, and new initiatives designed to enhance family law in the state of Connecticut.
Parrino also volunteers his time as a court-appointed special master in Stamford, Bridgeport and Middletown Superior Courts for family law cases.
