Allison Noteware – Associate
Attorney Allison “Allie” Noteware, admitted to the Connecticut bar in November 2023, focuses on Litigation and works closely with Partners Kent Mancini, Ryan Henry, John Tower, Randy DiBella, and Lisa Rivas.
A Quinnipiac University School of Law graduate, Attorney Noteware is based primarily in the firm’s New Milford office, while also spending roughly one day a week in the Litchfield office.
She first came to Cramer & Anderson as a 2018 summer intern, and returned as a paralegal in 2019 after graduating with honors from the Ancell School of Business at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, where she also played field hockey.
As a paralegal, and later a law clerk, Attorney Noteware worked on legal documentation under the supervision of senior-level attorneys, as well as collaborating with clients, paralegals, attorneys, court personnel, and other parties to ensure expeditious processing of claims.
Throughout her tenure with Cramer & Anderson, she has also assisted Attorney Rivas, whose focus is Immigration Law, on asylum cases and waivers.
Now, as an attorney admitted to the Connecticut bar, she can work directly with clients and take matters to court. Attorney Noteware also plans to apply to the federal bar, as well as seeking admission to the New York bar.
Among her honors, the Litchfield County Bar Association (LCBA) selected Noteware as a 2022 recipient of the scholarship presented in memory of Attorney Catherine Roraback and Attorney Thomas F. Wall, Sr.
At Western Connecticut State University, she received the Academic Achievement Award for Legal Studies, her degree program within the Division of Justice and Law Administration, and won the Schramm Cup moot court competition in 2019.
In addition to receiving several academic excellence awards in law school, Attorney Noteware also won the Excellence in Legal Academia Award for graduating in the top 10 (seventh) of her class.
She served as a Lead Article Editor on the Quinnipiac Law Review and published an article in the 2022-2023 Review entitled “Connecticut’s Paid Family and Medical Leave Act and Insurance Program: Worker Rights in the Only Industrialized Country Without Federal Paid Leave.”
The article discusses Connecticut’s new legislation and compares it to paid family and medical leave laws in New Jersey, Rhode Island, New York, and Massachusetts, as well as comparing the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to such programs in Canada, Japan, and Sweden, all of which are more expansive.
Attorney Noteware lives in Watertown with her fiancé Adam and their two dogs, Koda and Jax, who are Shepskies, a husky, shepherd mix.
Among public service efforts, she volunteers for the beCAUSE 4 PAWS, a New Milford-based nonprofit dedicated to saving homeless, abused, and neglected dogs and cats across Connecticut.
