    I am so proud of the attorneys in Newtown, Connecticut. I raised my children in Bethel, Connecticut and visited Newtown on numerous occasions. I always loved living there and working in the surrounding areas of Bethel as a Legal Assistant. The spirit and dedication of everyone throughout this terrible tragedy has brought tears to my eyes and warmth to my heart!
