Attorney Felice Duffy served as an Assistant United States Attorney for ten years after beginning her legal career at two prestigious firms (one in CT and one in NY) and then clerking for two federal judges. As an undergraduate, she brought a legal action under the then-new Title IX statute against UCONN to compel the creation of its women’s varsity soccer program. She went on to become a first-team Division I All-American, was selected to be on the first U.S. National Women’s Team, and spent 10 years as Head Coach of the Yale women's soccer team (while at the same time earning her Ph.D. in Education/Sports Psychology).
 

Duffy Law is the culmination of my professional path. It’s how I get to best help people who need a strong partner in navigating the judicial and educational institutions with which they’re contending.

We were also taught to do our best at everything, whether it was school or hobbies or sports. “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.” Put simply, I’m driven by excellence, and I’m driven by it at a deep level.
