School Board Chairman Stephen Wright's commute has gotten shorter.
Wright was recently made a partner in Norwalk-based Goldman, Gruder & Woods, which has opened an office at 105 Technology Drive in Trumbull.
"We needed an eastern Fairfield County presence," said Michael L. Goldman, of Trumbull. "The office is housed in one of Trumbull’s newest business centers, with easy access to major thoroughfares."
It was the only place they looked in Fairfield County, according to the attorney. "It was very easy to make this decision."

“The attorneys at our firm believe in face-to-face time with each one of our clients. The addition of our Trumbull office provides further convenience for our clients as well as added space to house our growing team," the attorney said.
The Trumbull office will serve as the base for an expanded focus on bankruptcy, debtor/creditor rights, and commercial litigation.
“We are experiencing increased demand for the legal services our team handles,” Goldman said. “To maintain our commitment to personalized attention to each client’s unique needs, we found it necessary to expand," he stated in the release.
“As a Trumbull resident, I’m thrilled to bring added commerce to my town, and I’m looking forward to acquainting my neighbors and friends with our services,” according to Goldman.
Goldman, Gruder & Woods is the largest general practice law firm in Norwalk and recently expanded its headquarters offices in that city, adding space for the anticipated addition of a number of associate attorneys. Goldman, Gruder & Woods also has offices in Greenwich, according to the press release.
It represents individuals, employers and employees in matters related to business, real estate, employment, education, criminal, litigation and health care laws.
