Pro Bono Honors 2014: Sharon Dornfeld's Efforts Have Earned Her Hugs And Leadership Roles

, The Connecticut Law Tribune

Sharon Dornfeld said that a recent chance encounter reminded her why she donates so much time to help children. "I went a little late to a Danbury Bar Association meeting at a local restaurant, asked the young host to point me in the right direction, and was surprised when he said, 'Attorney Dornfeld?' When I said 'yes,' he threw his arms around me and gave me a big hug. I had no idea who he was. Turns out he was a kid I had represented in his parents' divorce about 10 years ago."

    As I stated in my testimony before the judiciary Committee during the March 31, 2014 Public Hearings on SB-494, no one doubts that there are GAL success stories out there.

    The problem lies in all the inappropriate conduct by GAL‘s which sadly continue to occur. In some cases, its almost as if SB-494 was not passed.
