Law firm changes name, announces associate
BRATTLEBORO — The law firm formerly known as Corum Mabie Cook Prodan Angell Secrest & Darrow, PLC has become Windham Law, PLC effective Oct. 1, 2019. The firm's name change coincides with the retirement of one of its partners, Joseph F. Cook.
Windham Law was founded by Richard E. Gale in 1940 and has grown to be one of Windham County's leading firms. Current members include John C. Mabie, Samuel H. Angell, Jonathan D. Secrest, and Amelia W.L. Darrow.
Joining the firm earlier this year, attorney Aimee R. Goddard broadens and deepens Windham Law's litigation practice. Goddard clerked for the Justices of the Superior Court of Massachusetts from 2015 through 2017, after which she represented individual and business clients in employment matters in both state and federal court at the trial and appellate levels in Massachusetts. Goddard attended Vermont Law School where she graduated Magna Cum Laude, was on the Vermont Law Review, and completed a judicial externship with the Honorable Judge William G. Young of the Federal District Court for the District of Massachusetts. Goddard is admitted practice law in Massachusetts and pending admission in Vermont having passed the Vermont bar in July. Goddard practices employment law, family law, personal injury, and civil and commercial litigation.
Cook was a member of the firm for almost 20 years. He concentrated his practice in estate planning, estate administration, and real estate transactions. Having been a banking officer prior to going to law school, Cook had a multitude of friends in and around the Brattleboro area. Cook continues to enjoy his cycling, trail maintenance on Vermont's many back woods hiking trails and travel with his wife, Debbie.
