Courtney, a graduate of Tufts University and Duke University Law School, was a founding partner of the Hartford, CT law firm of Berman, Bourns, Aaron & Dembo, LLC, now Berman, Mickelson, Dembo & Jacobs. He retired in 2015 after 50 years in a general litigation and family practice, including 30 years as a divorce mediator.

Following in the path of his father who was deeply engaged in civic activities and served a term as District Governor of Rotary in Ohio, Courtney has served on the boards of non-profit organizations in the Hartford area since 1970. His experience has extended from starting a small non-profit restaurant in downtown Hartford to being a board member of a $50 million/800 staff integrated health care organization. He enjoys fundraising — putting the “fun” back in it!

Courtney loves connecting/engaging with people, along with tennis, traveling, and photography. He currently serves as MBBI’s Chair of the Resource Development Committee (RDC).
