To Our FGSB Clients and Friends:


As we move into the month of April, we continue to provide legal services under rather unique circumstances. Here is what the clients of FGSB need to know.


Governor Lamont's Executive Order states that law offices are an essential business. FGSB is open during normal business hours. You can reach us, as usual, by phone, fax or email.


The biggest restriction on our work, is that we are not scheduling any in-office meetings or client conferences. We are replacing those interactions with phone or video conferences. If you would like to set up a particular time to talk with an attorney, just give us a call and make an appointment.


The extent to which we can maintain "business as usual" varies by the type of legal matter. We are continuing to take in civil, criminal, and family matters, and to make progress in pending files. For the present time, most courtroom activity, including trials, has been suspended.


Family law is a particularly sensitive area. The courts have designated proceedings involving allegations of abuse to be matters of the highest priority, and hearings are available, on those matters. We are working with our professional colleagues to discuss and negotiate issues, and we continue to reach agreements to resolve problems. Work being done on our contested files continues and it is more important than ever that we anticipate how the Court will address your matters and conduct when normal court activity resumes.


We continue to close both residential and commercial real estate transactions. These matters require substantial cooperation with outside parties such as banks, town halls, other counsel, and title companies. Most logistical obstacles have been resolved. Contact us and we'll be happy to give you further details.


The wide variety of issues we tackle at FGSB has not changed due to the coronavirus threat. We continue to do all that we can to assist our clients, especially in these challenging times.

Welcome to FGSB

The cornerstone of our practice is a sense of professionalism. This involves providing our clients with the highest possible level of legal services.  It also includes the personal satisfaction that comes with a job well done.


We value a sense of collegiality. The lawyers in this firm are a diverse group and have varied areas of practice, but we work in an atmosphere of mutual respect. Cases are discussed. Clients are placed with the attorney who can best do the job.


Firm mentality--We practice as a firm, in part, because it is economical to do so.  Beyond that, sharing the administrative burdens allows each of us to focus our attention on the substantive areas of practice that interest us.


Atmosphere–We have confidence in our work product but are not arrogant. Clients should find us relaxed and approachable.


Legal Fees–We do not hide the fact that we charge for our legal services. Our goal is not to be the least expensive law firm, but the law firm that delivers the best value for our clients.


Role of Attorneys–We face the challenges of a rapidly changing society.  We know that the needs of our clients are constantly changing, and our role must adapt to meet those needs.
