Firm Overview

We are a boutique law firm handling only family and matrimonial law
cases. For over 35 years, the law firm of Rutkin & Oldham has been
dedicated to providing the highest level of service for high net worth,
high income, and custody clients. From our location
in an historic home in Westport (with a satellite office in Greenwich),
our legal team is prepared to counsel and guide you with experience,
compassion, and tenacity through what may prove the most difficult and
important time in your life.


The firm's involvement in family law has included:
written publications including treatises used by other practitioners and
the courts themselves; speaking at and participating in local,
national, and international legal seminars and educational events; and
precedent-setting litigation in the courtroom. The Wendt v. Wendt
case, litigated by the firm in 1997, essentially redefined how the
legal community and the greater population across the nation view
marital financial arrangements. Courts now look at the true
complexities of family life, which for upscale families can include a
detailed look at your finances, the efforts that both men and women
contribute to the family constellation and child custody issues. The
courts make inquiry into the true nature and value of parental roles,
assets, and income.


Whether you believe a spouse is hiding assets or income,
or you believe you have significantly contributed to the income and
assets of the family or career of your spouse, or your family is
involved in a custody or relocation case, you will need highly
experienced and understanding counsel to assist you during this trying
time. Rutkin, Oldham & Griffin, L.L.C., brings you the knowledge,
focus, and legal skills needed to handle the complexities of high
assets/income or parenting issues. Whether your case requires highly
experienced trial attorneys or skilled settlement negotiators, or
simply compassion and patience in difficult times

Arnold Rutkin

Arnold H. Rutkin has a distinguished career in family law and has helped
shape how family law is perceived and handled. Since he began
practicing law in 1965, he has developed an unprecedented level of
experience in dealing with complex legal and sensitive personal and
financial situations. He brings that experience, plus a vast knowledge
of the law, the courts, and the practical aspects of litigation and
negotiation to his handling of domestic relations matters. He grew up in
a family business where he became familiar with business issues. Among
his best known accomplishments is the litigation of Wendt
v. Wendt
, which made national headlines and set legal
precedents regarding the way that courts view financial arrangements in
marriage – especially when there are significant assets involved. Read
