Brody Wilkinson PC is pleased to announce that Heather J. Lange was named a principal of the firm. Ms. Lange joined Brody Wilkinson in 2009 as counsel and is a member of the firm’s Trusts & Estates and Dispute Resolution Groups. She practices in the areas of estate planning, trust and estate administration, estate settlement, and probate, trust and fiduciary litigation. Ms. Lange represents individuals and family groups with the preparation of sophisticated wills, revocable trusts, private foundations and charitable trusts and when necessary, litigates probate proceedings. With her strong tax background, she adds value to income tax planning which has become an important part of the estate planning process due to the increase in the federal estate tax exemption. In addition, Ms. Lange has a niche practice in equine law where she bridges her legal capabilities and equestrian interests.
“Heather has been an integral member of our firm since she first joined us and we could not be more pleased to mark her professional development by naming her a principal of Brody Wilkinson,” said senior principal Peter T. Mott.
Ms. Lange is admitted to practice in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. She is a member of the American, Connecticut and Fairfield County Bar Associations. Ms. Lange serves on the Executive Committee of the Probate Section of the Connecticut Bar Association.

Ms. Lange is a frequent author and speaker on estate and tax planning and fiduciary litigation subjects. Outside the office, she is an avid runner and equestrian. Ms. Lange serves on the Board of Directors of the Bridgeport YMCA, where she serves as the vice chairperson. She also volunteers at Pegasus Therapeutic Riding, a non-profit organization that provides equine-assisted activities and therapies to children and adults with physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities.
