Attorney Dina L. Atwood first became affiliated with the firm of Stitzel, Page & Fletcher, P.C. in May 2008, after working eight years for the State of Vermont, Agency of Human Services. Dina became an owner of the Firm on January 1, 2012.

Dina’s practice is concentrated in the areas of special and general education law, and personnel-related matters. She works closely with our education clients throughout the State.

“I value and appreciate the relationship that I have and the firm has with our clients. Municipalities and school districts are complex and highly regulated institutions – but at their heart they are made up of real people dedicated to serving the public. My best days are those in which I am able to assist our clients to overcome what may seem at first glance to be an insurmountable issue. By maintaining strong relationships, open communication, and responding promptly to client needs, we are able to build trust and confidence as we work through problems together.”

A 1999 graduate of Vermont Law School (J.D.), Dina is admitted to practice before the Vermont Supreme Court, the U.S. District Court for the District of Vermont and the U.S. Court of Appeals, Second Circuit. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Rhode Island. Dina lives in Colchester.
