Summary

PAUL M. GAIDE, ESQUIRE

EXPERIENCED | COST EFFECTIVE | THOUGHTFUL | TIMELY | TRUSTWORTHY

For over twenty-nine years Paul M. Gaide’s practice has emphasized superior representation of clients in state and federal courts, and in transactions.

Mr. Gaide’s unique combination of education and vocational experiences in family law, business litigation, commercial transactions, finance, insurance, tax and accounting result in his clients receiving valuable insights and exceptional service.

Mr. Gaide’s general approach, both with his clients and opposing parties / counsel, is to be direct, after gaining a full understanding of the facts, as applied to the applicable law. Mr. Gaide uses his education, experience and training to maximize results for clients, whether through negotiation or through appropriately aggressive litigation.

Prior to opening his own firm in 1994, Mr. Gaide practiced law with the multi-national Am Law 100 firm of Edwards & Angell, LLP (n/k/a Locke Lord, LLP), and the then third largest law firm in the State of Connecticut, Schatz & Schatz, Ribicoff & Kotkin (dissolved).

Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. Do you have to disclose all credit cards on sworn financial statements?
A: All debts must be disclosed. Whether the other party has "negative income" may or may not be relevant to whether you will be able to obtain an order for attorney fees. The Court will take all factors into consideration, including, without limitation, the division of assets and liabilities. Collection of a judgment may be a different issue. As for your "activity" question, the response may well depend on whether there is an agreement or Court Order on the subject, or may depend on whether the activity will pose an unreasonable risk of injury to the child, etc. More cannot be said without additional facts.
Q. I want to move back into my premarital house my husband is not on. We have a house, what is my financial responsibility?
A: Dear Poster: It is impossible to answer your question without additional information. Respectfully, the number of questions which competent counsel should ask of you are not conducive to this forum. I recommend that you contact counsel of your choosing and discuss the matter.
