Anne Dranginis’ distinguished legal career includes serving more than two decades as a Connecticut Superior and Connecticut Appellate Court judge before returning to private practice, where she has spent the past 15 years.

The 73-year-old Dranginis, who has worked for Pullman & Comley the past five years following a 10-year stint at Rome McGuigan, has excelled while watching a once male-dominated field slowly become more diverse and integrated.
