Attorney Brandon B. Fontaine received his Bachelor of Science degree, magna cum laude, from the University of New Haven, and his Juris Doctor, cum laude, from Roger Williams University School of Law. During law school, he was selected to serve as an Articles Editor for the Law Review and a member of the Honors Program.

In his final year of law school, Brandon served as a student attorney, representing indigent clients in criminal proceedings and trial with the Rhode Island Public Defender’s Office and the Roger Williams University Criminal Defense Clinic. He was also a judicial intern to the Honorable Lincoln D. Almond in Rhode Island’s federal district court. Following graduation and prior to joining Budlong & Budlong, he served in the Connecticut Judicial Branch as a legal research clerk to the judges of the Superior Court, advising them on the applicable law and appropriate resolutions of legal issues.

Attorney Fontaine is admitted to practice before the state courts of Connecticut and Massachusetts. His practice is focused on family law, in addition to appellate law, criminal matters and general civil litigation. He represents clients on a variety of family matters, primarily involving dissolution of marriage, child custody, visitation, financial support orders, property distribution, and post-judgment issues.
