Local attorney and longtime resident Chris Goulden was unanimously endorsed as the Republican candidate for Judge of Probate in the 40th District at their convention at High Plains Community Center on May 24. The district encompasses Milford and Orange.
A graduate of Quinnipiac College School of Law, Chris Goulden has practiced law for over 27 years in all courts, including Probate Courts throughout the State. His experience includes estates, conservatorships, termination of parental rights matters and adoptions. He has also helped individuals in matters involving DCF. His practice is located in Milford and Chris is a Milford resident.
Chris Goulden said, “I believe that all citizens of Milford and Orange should have improved access to the Probate Court. I would like to implement a system whereby the Probate court would have extended hours on a weeknight and Saturday for a few hours to allow those that can’t reach the court during normal business hours to access the court during these stressful times. I want to make the Probate Court experience as easy as possible for all who seek the Court’s help.
Chris Goulden is presently the President of the Milford Bar Association, as well as a proud member of the Irish Heritage Society of Milford. He has served on the statewide grievance Committee for six years and continues to volunteer in Milford, Bridgeport and Middletown as a special master, assisting individuals in settling complex family cases.
“I am an extremely hard worker and dedicated person. I will always serve the citizens of Milford and Orange with dignity and respect in the role of Probate Judge and I ask for your support.” said Chris.
