Daniel Krisch, attorney to the former Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz during her attempt to run for State Attorney General, was quoted in Connecticut Law Tribune article regarding qualifications for judicial nominees.

Daniel said the Judicial Selection Commission's powers do not include setting a minimum age for judicial candidates.

The regulations for judicial nominees do not list a license to practice law as a specific qualification, but say a candidate must possess legal ability that is exemplified by professional excellence, a degree of intellect and a technical proficiency equal to that required by the highest standards of the practicing bar.

As a rule, the legislature would have to do it. Daniel added, As a rule of thumb, it seems like experience is something pretty relevant for the commission to consider.2011 'Super Lawyers' Recognizes 20 H & S Attorneys

Reported CasesRepresentative Matter: H & S Wins Insurance Coverage Appeal; Halloran & Sage recently secured an important appellate victory for insurers in Palkimas v. State Farm Fire & Casualty Co., 150 Conn. App. 655 (2014). In Palkimas, the Appellate Court held that an insurer does not have to prove prejudice if an insured fails to submit a sworn proof of loss in support of a claim for coverage. The Appellate Court distinguished Arrowood Indemnity Co. v. King, 304 Conn. 179 (2012), in which the Supreme Court had reversed its own, decades-old precedent and held that the burden to prove prejudice from late notice of a claim is on the insurer. In Palkimas, the plaintiff (undisputedly) never provided a sworn proof of loss, which is a condition for coverage under his homeowner's policy. On that basis, the Appellate Court affirmed summary judgment in favor of Halloran & Sage's client, State Farm Fire & Casualty Company.Daniel Krisch Wins Divorce Appeal; Daniel Krisch successfully defended a post-judgment modification of alimony on appeal to the Appellate Court on behalf of the plaintiff in Whitehead v. Pite, 135 Conn. App. 819, cert. denied, ___ Conn. ___ (2012). The trial court had granted the plaintiff's motion to extend her alimony beyond the time set in the original divorce judgment based on a substantial change in her circumstances. On appeal, the Appellate Court agreed with Daniel that prior Supreme Court precedent did not preclude the trial court's decision and that the trial court correctly found that the plaintiff was entitled to the alimony modification. Daniel regularly represents parties in divorce appeals and advises trial counsel about appellate issued during divorce litigation. Whitehead v. Pite, 135 Conn.
