A Counselor and Friend

We are writing to encourage voters to select Chuck Tiernan for probate judge when they go to the polls in just a few weeks.

From Herb: As a former judge on the Connecticut Appellate Court, I have known Attorney Tiernan for years, and I greatly respect his legal expertise and his commitment to his clients and the law. It is also a wonderful accomplishment to be recognized by his peers this year as one of the best attorneys in the New Haven area.

From Janice: We have needed a probate judge in another state twice, and we quickly learned that — in times of crisis — the way a judge comports himself or herself is hugely important. Chuck is always welcoming and respectful. He listens with compassion, while at the same time guiding his clients through the complexities of the law.

One fact of life is that we will all need to engage with a probate judge at some point in our lives. We are proud to call Chuck Tiernan a counselor and friend.
