Attorneys listed in this 26th edition of The Best Lawyers in America were selected after an exhaustive peer-review survey that confidentially investigates the professional abilities and experience of each lawyer.

Nusbaum has been practicing family law in Westport for more than 35 years. He has been a Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent-rated attorney for 26 consecutive years and been named a Connecticut Super Lawyers Top 50 attorney by Thomson Reuters.
Attorneys named to The Best Lawyers in America were recognized by their peers in the legal industry for their professional excellence in 146 practice areas. For the 2020 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, 8.3 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in almost 62,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
The process begins when lawyers are nominated for consideration. They are divided by geographic region and practice area, and are evaluated by their peers on the basis of professional expertise. Those who receive high peer reviews undergo an additional verification process to make sure they are currently practicing and in good standing. Only then can these top lawyers be recognized by Best Lawyers.
Nusbaum is a Fellow and past president of the Connecticut Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and is a Fellow of the International Academy of Family Lawyers, the leading organizations of family law practitioners. He also is a member of the Connecticut Bar Association’s Resolution of Legal Fees Dispute Committee.
