Brittany A. LaBerge wants to be the voice for those who have been silenced, who are afraid, or who feel powerless.
Brittany was born and raised in Vermont. At a young age, she decided she wanted to help families and children through some of the most challenging times of their lives. At Vermont Law School she spent the last year and a half of her education doing hands on work in the South Royalton Legal Clinic and as an intern with the Attorney General’s Office Family Services Division in Waterbury. While interning she represented children in CHINS proceedings and Contested Guardianship proceedings. She also saw the other side of litigation and what the State of Vermont needs to prove for parental rights to be terminated.
While some view the legal process as a “win-lose” situation, Brittany understands that there is no winning when a family is going through a divorce, a relief from abuse situation, or custody battle. She does her best to make sure that this difficult process is made a little easier for all of those involved.
Brittany has been a Girl Scout since she was in first grade and one of the first things she did on her 18th birthday was become a lifetime member. She knows that the Vermont community helped make her who she is today and she does whatever she can to give back. From participating in green up day to being one of Santa’s elves at the Santa pancake breakfast in Georgia, Vermont, she values the Vermont community and cannot imagine living anywhere else.
She currently lives in Essex Junction with her husband Matt, Rosie the cat, Oreo the dog, and Jimmy, Spike and Sparrow the three bearded dragons (and will have a son or daughter added soon; final results pending audit).
