WESTPORT, Conn., Jan. 7, 2019 — The Law Offices of Edward Nusbaum today announced Harold “Rusty” Haldeman partner.
A veteran of handling numerous family law cases, Haldeman provides more than 20 years’ experience in matters involving divorce, property division, child custody issues, premarital and postmarital agreements, and a variety of other issues.

Adept at guiding clients through the complex process of preparing essential documents and responding to financial discovery typical in high-asset cases, Haldeman also manages the intake, cataloguing and analysis of the same documents and discovery from opposing counsel, methodically synthesizing vast amounts of financial information to provide concise, informative data for settlement or trial of the case. He works on all types of family law matters, including divorce, alimony, child support, property distribution and child custody, including preparation of pleadings, separation agreements, parenting plans and proposed orders for pre-trial and trial.
In fact, Haldeman’s pre-trial documentation, unofficially known by Connecticut judges as “Rusty’s Notebook,” has been recognized by numerous family law judges as the best resource trial document in the profession, according to Edward Nusbaum, principal of the firm.

During his time as a Military Judge he was the originator of the Navy-Marine Corps Trial Judiciary Electronic Bench Book, and the author of Lex Novissima Loquitor, a periodical keeping the worldwide Navy Trial Judiciary abreast of changes in military case law. Both, at the time, represented singular applications of new technology to improve the efficiency and accuracy of judges’ preparation for trials ashore and at sea. He also lectured on application of technology at the Naval Justice School’s Military Judges Course.
