Family Law done the right way
Meet Renée C. Bauer Founding Attorney

Renée C. Bauer

Founder

Advocate. Writer. Peacemaker. Blended Family Aficionado.

Renée strongly believes that reconfigured families can work. This is a philosophy she applies to her job in the office and her job at home as a mom and stepmom to four children.

Recognizing that people need reliable information about divorce, Renée penned the book Divorce in Connecticut, which can be found in every library throughout the state. Then one day she realized that children needed a resource also to help them understand divorce and with her son’s help, she authored the children’s book, Percy’s Imperfectly Perfect Family.

Renée is active in the legal community both presenting legal education seminars and regularly writing articles on family law. She is called upon by newspapers, radio shows, and even television reporters to comment on current legal topics. She frequently speaks at workshops for teenage girls on empowerment and self-worth.

In 2015, the Connecticut Law Tribune named her Litigator of the Year. Renée tried and won the case of Soderberg v. Soderberg, which garnered national attention and debate about whether a child can successfully sue a parent for non-payment of college tuition.

While litigation is sometimes necessary, Renée believes in mediation and she learned from the best. She participated in intensive mediation training with renowned mediation expert, Woody Mosten in Los Angeles, California. These are skills she brings to every mediation session so families can reach the best possible agreement for their unique situation. Renée is also a certified Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) and Attorney for the Minor Child (AMC).

Renée graduated from Suffolk University Law School in 2003 and she has been practicing family and matrimonial law ever since. But Renée wasn’t always a lawyer. Prior to devoting her career to the legal profession, Renée worked as a media and political consultant, legislative advocate and state liaison for a public interest group, and on a congressional campaign as an assistant finance director.

When Renée isn’t lawyering, she likes to test her strength in the gym, write, and hang out with her big, chaotic, blended family and rescue dogs.
