Attorney Profile

Karissa L. Parker is an associate attorney at Rutkin, Oldham & Griffin, LLC. Focusing her practice exclusively on divorce and other family law matters, she represents clients throughout Fairfield County from the firm’s office in Westport, Connecticut. Ms. Parker has been admitted to practice before all Connecticut state courts since 2014.

A significant portion of Ms. Parker’s client base is made up of area residents, many of whom own substantial holdings, who are seeing their marriages come to an end as a result of irreconcilable differences or other reasons. As such, she provides them with advice and counsel on such divorce legal issues as spousal and child support, child custody and visitation, and the division of business ownership interests, valuable collections and other complex assets.

While she is often able to help her clients come to an accord on some or all of these matters through mediation or by participating in the negotiation of a complex settlement agreement, Ms. Parker is an experienced trial attorney and thus a forceful courtroom advocate on their behalf when litigation is necessary. For those of her clients whose marriages have already been legally dissolved, she represents them in family court when they are seeking to have existing support and parenting court orders enforced or modified.

Ms. Parker attended the University of Connecticut as an undergraduate, and she received a Bachelor of Arts in political science in 2011. She remained in the state for her legal education, which she obtained at Quinnipiac University School of Law in North Haven, and in 2014, she was awarded her Juris Doctor magna cum laude. Ms. Parker is a member of the Fairfield County Bar Association and other professional groups.
