Family Law

At any point in your life, you may have need of a family lawyer who will be able to counsel you through the sensitive process of whatever readjustment you're dealing with in your home.

Wide-ranging Aspects of Family Law

For many years, I've been dedicated to helping families through tough situations. My firm excels at handling:

  • Uncontested & contested divorce. You may have no more disagreements to sift through in your uncontested divorce, or perhaps you cannot agree to the terms or the divorce itself if it is contested; in either case, you need representation to establish legal terms on mutual ground.
  • High-asset divorce. If you're dealing with a high-asset divorce, you need my assistance navigating the process around your successful business or career.
  • Distribution of property & other marital assets. A substantial portion of the process may involve sitting in mediation, negotiation, or litigation deciding how to distribute your material items. In this case, I need to fight for what’s fair to you.
  • Spousal & child alimony support. If you need to decide official terms on how to provide for your child or children, together we'll take it one step at a time.
  • Child custody & support. When coming to an agreement about child custody, negotiation can be difficult. Considering your child's well-being will be paramount in these proceedings.

Family law is expansive and certainly requires legal help. Contact my office for the specialized and expert guidance you need.

I'm passionate about handling domestic violence issues and will work tirelessly to secure a protective order if the need should arise.

Family Law & Divorce in Maryland

Family law is expansive, but Maryland or Washington D.C. laws will determine how your case plays out. For instance, in Maryland there are two types of divorce: absolute and limited.
