Raymond Rigat served as a Lieutenant in the Judge Advocate General Corps for the U.S. Navy from 1990 to 1993, and as a military court civilian attorney since then.

Raymond Rigat was a probate court judge for the District of Clinton (Region Six) from 1998 until 2011. He was voted for three times by local Connecticut voters to address difficult family situations. This judicial experience helps Rigat see both sides of your case and anticipate what your judge will think and how he or she might rule.
Just because an attorney is aggressively representing his client doesn't mean he has to be a jerk. When your legal issue is in the hands of a judge or opposing attorney, sometimes it's better if that person likes you, or at least your lawyer. Raymond Rigat is a strong advocate in the courtroom, wooing over judges with kindness and consideration, while at the same time zealously representing your best interests.
Attorney Raymond Rigat may have gotten a reputation as a good "trial guy", but he is a researcher at heart. The more complicated the legal issue, the more he enjoys his work.
