Law firm changes name, adds associate

BRATTLEBORO — The law firm formerly known as Corum Mabie Cook Prodan Angell Secrest & Darrow, PLC has become Windham Law, PLC.

The name change, which took effect in October, coincides with the retirement of partner Joseph F. Cook.

Windham Law was founded by Richard E. Gale in 1940 and has grown to be one of Windham County's leading firms. Current members include John C. Mabie, Samuel H. Angell, Jonathan D. Secrest, and Amelia W.L. Darrow.

Attorney Aimee R. Goddard, who joined the firm earlier this year, clerked for the justices of the Superior Court of Massachusetts from 2015 through 2017. She then represented individual and business clients in employment matters in state and federal courts at the trial and appellate levels in that state.

She attended Vermont Law School, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. Goddard was on the Vermont Law Review, and completed a judicial externship with Judge William G. Young of the Federal District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

Goddard passed the Vermont bar in July. She practices employment law, family law, personal injury, and civil and commercial litigation.

Cook, a member of the firm for nearly 20 years, plans to continue enjoying his cycling, trail maintenance on Vermont's many backwoods hiking trails, and travel with his wife, Debbie.
