Abigail Miranda- Associate
In her two years as an attorney with Cramer & Anderson, LLP, Abigail T. Miranda has worked on several high-profile cases while establishing a diversified practice whose focus areas include Divorce & Family Law, Personal Injury Law, and Civil Litigation.
Making a personal connection with clients, being readily available, and establishing a strong sense of trust are guiding principles for Attorney Miranda—whether she’s drafting a prenuptial agreement, working on aspects of a complex municipal law issue, or assisting Partner D. Randall DiBella with noteworthy cases involving a New Milford house explosion and the death of a cyclist.
“Those are things that are very important to me,” Attorney Miranda says of her commitment to clients. “I want injury clients to know, for example, that I know what disability rating they have from their doctor—not only do I know the law, I know them.”
In the area of Divorce & Family Law—about 40 percent of her practice—Attorney Miranda has handled custody cases and restraining orders, in addition to divorces and prenuptial agreements. She is certified by the State of Connecticut Judicial Branch to act as a Guardian Ad Litem and Attorney for Minor Children.
Attorney Miranda’s Personal Injury cases extend from motor vehicle accidents to a slip-and-fall case in federal court, and in her Municipal Law role, she has worked with Partner John Tower on issues surrounding the former Century Brass property in New Milford, among many others.
In litigation also related to property, Attorney Miranda represents a half-dozen condominium associations, handling the collection of unpaid fees, foreclosures, and other matters. She also guides summary process cases (evictions) for landlords, and for tenants.
In January 2018, Connecticut Magazine named Attorney Miranda to its ’40 Under 40′ list of high achievers, based on a nomination by Attorney DiBella, who called Attorney Miranda “that rare attorney whose professional accomplishments and community service feel like one in the same,” and described her as “tough but compassionate, a beacon for the law firm in community-volunteer roles, and dedicated to empowering women in need.”
Attorney Miranda was also named a 2017 New Leader in the Law as part of the Connecticut Law Tribune’s annual statewide Professional Excellence Awards. In nominating Attorney Miranda, Partner John Tower cited her “highly engaged caring” as the attribute responsible for helping a young Associate blossom into a leader in client service, pro bono and reduced fee work, and volunteer community service.
Attorney Miranda lives with her husband in Litchfield. She was named to the board of the Women’s Center of Greater Danbury in November 2016 and joined the board of the Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce in 2017.
