Dianne Covello will join the Trusts and Estates practice in 2016 as a paralegal, reflecting the need for additional asssistance in this growing practice for Rucci Law Group. Attorney Michele Gartland remarked, “While Dianne has been helping the Trust & Estates department out for months, we are looking forward to her officially joining the team. She brings both warmth and professionalism to her interactions with clients, and she has a wealth of experience to draw from. Her knowledge of the insurance business has already been invaluable, and she is a great resource for our clients.


Dianne’s background includes both a Master’s degree in Social Work from Columbia University and tenure as a financial planner. This combination provides her with the unique skill set to contribute in the T&E practice. Dianne is familiar with the estate planning vocabulary and decipering insurance products, as well as being an empathetic listener with a fun sense of humor. With RLG’s plans to grow our Elder Care practice, Dianne’s experience working with elderly patients and her familiarity with issues related to their care will be a true asset.


When she is not smoothing the T&E pathways at RLG, Dianne and her husband are busy raising two children in Darien, CT. She plans to spend much of the coming year focused on training her one and a half year old old Boston Terrier, Thurman. He is on Santa’s Naughty List after snacking on many of her Christmas decorations.
