Connecticut Magazine has named Attorney Abigail Miranda to its prestigious ’40 Under 40’ list of high achievers who come from different pursuits but all make a significant impact in their fields. The story is published in the February 2018 issue.
“[Abigail] Miranda, an attorney at Cramer & Anderson, focuses on divorce and family law, personal injury law, and civil litigation, often working with clients who are the victims of spousal abuse and dealing with divorce and custody concerns,” Connecticut Magazine says in its write-up.
The magazine notes that in his nomination letter, Partner D. Randall DiBella calls Attorney Miranda “that rare attorney whose professional accomplishments and community service feel like one in the same, ” while describing her as “tough but compassionate, a beacon for the law firm in community-volunteer roles, and dedicated to empowering women in need.”
Sections of Attorney DiBella’s nomination letter not cited in print by Connecticut Magazine elaborate on some of the things that set Attorney Miranda apart:
Not satisfied with simply being a successful advocate for clients, Attorney Miranda has also become a force in community service. Named to the board of the Women’s Center of Greater Danbury in November 2016, she is co-chair of the center’s annual gala, the largest fundraiser for a nonprofit that’s there 24/7 for those dealing with domestic violence, sexual assault and other major life crises.
… Attorney Miranda was also asked to join the board of the Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce, and her level of caring even filters down to an effort like the Sarah Noble Intermediate School Walking Project, in which she walks with fifth-graders to encourage good health and lifestyle habits.
As an Associate at Cramer & Anderson, Attorney 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 Attorney DiBella with noteworthy cases involving a New Milford house explosion and the death of a cyclist.
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.
In nominating her for that award, Partner John Tower cited her “highly engaged caring” as the attribute responsible for helping Attorney Miranda blossom into a leader in client service, pro bono and reduced fee work, and volunteer community service.
The firm also has offices in Danbury, Litchfield, Ridgefield, Washington Depot and Kent. For more information, call the New Milford office at (860) 355-2631 or see the website at www.www.crameranderson.com.
