Freed Marcroft

No. of employees: 12

Family law firm Freed Marcroft is located in a storefront office on Hartford's Main Street. The office layout aims to create a warm and welcoming environment for clients who are often experiencing stressful family issues.

The firm's open floor plan and large conference room aim to promote collaboration among staff, while a smaller conference room and offices provide privacy.

The 2,000-square-foot, two-story office space is centrally located in Hartford and has a contemporary design but also incorporates the historic elements of the Linden Building, built in 1891, including exposed brick, arched doorways and carved newel posts around the solid wood staircase. In 2013, the firm was recognized by the Hartford Preservation Alliance for its renovation of their historic space.

The firm's principals, Meghan Freed and Kristen Marcroft, developed the vision for the office space, which also has a corner earmarked for Daphne, the owners' King Charles Cavalier spaniel.
