John Aldrich
Attorney at Law

Man signing documents with scales of justice

Hometown Boy

Born and raised in Rowayton, I graduated from Colgate University and NYU Law School.  I moved back to Rowayton after law school and started a family.  I founded Aldrich & Aldrich with my sister in 1993, and I am proud to have served clients from Fairfield County for nearly thirty years.  In addition to my law practice, I try to give back to my community through my volunteer work and by serving as a Commissioner of Norwalk’s Sixth Taxing District for six years.  I have also been involved with many local community organizations.  I served as president of both Hill Top Homes (a senior living facility) and the Rowayton Library Board of Trustees. 

I am a member of the Connecticut Bar Association and volunteer with their pro bono divorce clinic.  I also am a member of the Bridgeport Bar Association, the Association for Conflict Resolution, and the Connecticut Council for Divorce Mediation and Family Dispute Resolution. 

In addition to my legal and community work, I enjoy gardening and the ukulele.   

My Approach to Law – Divorce with Respect 

Aldrich & Aldrich began as a general practice in 1993.  Since then, our focus gradually shifted to the areas of divorce and family law.  My goal as an attorney is to help clients get their desired result with efficiency and professionalism.  This is accomplished by effective advocacy in court as a litigator, as well as by concentrating on goals and working cooperatively with other divorce professionals.  When working with parents of children, it is important to strive for mutual respect between the parties, as they will remain co-parenting partners to their children after the divorce.    I am trained as a traditional divorce litigator, as a divorce mediator, and as a collaborative divorce professional.  Whatever your needs for a family law attorney, I can help.   

I will fight for a better future.
