Stephen A. Dardeck (Of Counsel)

Stephen started practicing law in Rutland, Vermont in 1975, and retired from the active practice of law in August, 2015. After 42 years of helping clients all over the State, he literally gave his briefcase to Attorney Wendy Fitzsimons to carry on the firm’s divorce and family law practice. We are fortunate that Steve regularly visits the office to confer on all legal issues. And, we enjoy his tales of hiking, biking and Spartan Race adventures.


Stephen Dardeck was born in New York City, on August 13, 1945.
